Developing

Pwned.com has been a fun challenge from the beginning. My friend Andrew started the site and asked me to join the team after a few months.

The site has sent us to video game conferences and introduced us to a lot of great people. We have over 12,000 members now and are constantly adding features.

The site was built from scratch using PHP and MySQL. The biggest challenges, from a programming viewpoint, have been scalability. Everything we build has to be fast and use little memory.
