Hello my name is Adisa, I'm male, and I live in Birmingham, UK. I'm a web developer, writer, music producer, podcaster and piano player (level 6). My hobbies are reading, writing, television, youtube, socialising, sociology, and video games. I have a Computing degree, and I studied Health and Social Care in college. I work as a personal assistant, market researcher, search engine data analyst, and in customer service. I run multiple websites.
My experience with dokuwiki is when I was a child and I wanted to make a website with a hidden proxy so I could bypass the school internet filter that was McAfee Webwasher. The website also a free SMS web page and it also contained an Associate o Matic script for buying songs from Amazon using my affiliate link from their affiliate program with a custom designed website. It was fun unblocking websites at school so we could play flash games, use social networks like Myspace/Facebook/Hi5/Bebo/Tagged/Friendster, use instant messenger with Ebuddy and Meebo, download game boy advance roms, and watch videos on Stage6 (youtube wasn't blocked because teachers said it had educational content) and porn lol. But an idiot snitched that I made the proxy website when I specifically told everyone not to snitch, then two days later the Generic Body Filter got made that would block websites based on the content of the page, so any page with the word proxy or ammunition would be automatically blocked. I found a way to bypass this, and I found a way to make my proxy website look like an educational website by hiding the proxy by making the home page lead to an educational wiki, and also hiding the proxy from the Webwasher staff that would manually visit every website with 50-100 or more page views that wasn't whitelisted or blacklisted to categorise the website. Also to make the wiki convincing, it had to had content, so I wrote all the educational content for it for the school kids.
Nowadays kids use their smartphones to access blocked websites, so proxies are much less popular nowadays. When I was in school Nokia was the top phone brand and we didn't surf the world wide web, we surfed WAP, and mobile networks would have their own portals. Most websites were not responsive. Also websites have become more complex so they don't work with the proxy scripts made in the 90's and 00's.
Later on I wanted to create a wiki about sociology that had anecdotal evidence and personal experiences, and I was going to use Dokuwiki for it. But given the multitude of differing experiences, attitudes, opinions and behaviours of different people on the individual and group level, I figured that a wiki wouldn't be a good fit for it as one page on a wiki tends to be only about one topic, so I then decided to code a website myself using the Code Igniter MVC PHP framework. I decided that the educational content for school kids and sociology should share the same wiki, and I still have the backup of the wiki website on my computer and hard drive. Also I helped my brother run a wiki that used dokuwiki to store information on role play games like Dungeons and Dragons.
My other experience as a web developer is working professionally for Grow VC in 2012 (the website no longer exists), doing freelance work, personal projects and contributing to the open source community (ie. dokuwiki).
