About Stephen Belanger

Member Since May 27th, 2010
Company Sayvee

I’m a cave-dwelling, Mountain Dew drinking, Doritos eating code monkey—have been since 8th grade.

I’ve been doing web development work for almost ten years, with quite a bit of knowledge in PHP, XHTML, Javascript, AJAX and web standards. I’m professionally trained in SEO and have some training in UI/UX.

I have also done a fair bit of hobby game development, mostly when I was in high school; and have extensive knowledge of C, C++, Python, Lua, GameMonkey,  Visual Basic, OpenGL/ES, DirectX, OpenAL, Irrlicht, Ogre3D and developing for ARM-based embedded systems.

Currently my focus is in Server-Side Javascript Systems with emphasis in real-time communication via Comet/WebSockets. I’ve also been working on game development in Canvas as a side project.
