Tommy Lee Software development for everyone else

New Boys In Town

One day an old friend came to me and mentioned if I wanted to start a business. So we did that. We started a new company. After a month of waiting, we got it! Costs us about 1000 dollars, but well worth it. We decided on TLA Global Solutions. LLC. We focus on making some flashy sites, data analysis, GIS and Social Media,etc. Still not too sure

Social Media?

Yeah social media, analyzing fan pages, getting demographic information, and optimizing their efforts. From my current job, we noticed that many businesses have a vague understanding of what is their online audience. Our goals are to bring businesses and individuals these tools, graphs and understanding in order to enhance their business.

At work, gotta create a battle plan on analyzing demographic information and social media information. Granted the APIs involved are the same, and the techniques are well documented, just got to be careful on what kind of methods to use.


Yeah, we have a good resource of GIS trained people. While I’m not too familliar with the software, I’m used to doing things a little bit of a manual way, relying on sql databases, massive logs, and some pretty Javascript virtualization. If we can get a contract or two in GIS, maybe it’ll be a good place to look for extra work.


We got a few new projects rolling out this year. So Past to Future Games is rolling out very quickly, with renewed interest in development. Tim and Dimitra are hard at work, seeing major progress every week. I got a new animated logo up, maybe make it into an animated menu, with all the class of homestarrunner dot com.

After a few months of working at PlumPlex, Will has decided to convert bBadgeMedia to a wordpress site. So we’ll be working on securing the content and all that important information.

Farida approached me with need of a new site for her fashion lines. In a short amount of time, we rolled out with iRidaNista which holds all her clothes, pictures from fashion shows, and an online shop. Hopefully that is enough.

Paula has decided to move ahead with the Senhorita’s Macarons, a baking site, and we’re planning on making it nice and animated and pretty. Hopefully the results are acceptable in the appropriate amount of time.

With the new business up and running, we gotta create a site for that too! sheesh. With all this site buildilng, where is the relaxation and the learning and the training time?

A New Start

With the second year of the Horse approaching, I have decided to do a blog for a New Years resolution. We have a lot of plans in store for this year.

New Blog

I haven’t blogged in a long time, maybe since the days of xanga or myspace, but I found that it was appropriate to spread the same information around over and over again. Maybe they could be tutorials, math or physicsy related information, or cool projects i’m working on. Whatever works. While I’m used to a CMS platform like Wordpress or Drupal, some nice folks at /r/webdev recommended a static blog generator for a change of pace. currently checking out Jekyll, which keeps me focused on the content first.


I graduated a month ago (yay), waiting for a fancy piece of paper to arrive. This year I hope to have the following projects wrapped up:


We’re going to focus on a few fundamentals this year. To round out my experiences and hone it in, we’re going to learn a few new things. Mostly some UX and Javascript. Big topics include:

  • SASS, LESS and CSS related things.
  • Javascript, checking out React.js
  • Focus on some mobile related development.

While apache servers are standard, I’ve been looking into new server technologies. Specifically interested in the nginx and varnish cache servers. May write up some posts about setting those up.

Self Gratification

Thank you for stopping by and reading my first post. I hope future posts will be more beneficial.
