Free never tasted so good.

Starting with version 1.2 of the software, my interest on web building using this tool began. I created my first forum site using MyBB 1.2, moving on to version 1.4 soon after (2008), I fell in love with the project. MyBB wasn't the only software at the time but it was faster, simpler, and top user-friendly free forum script available on the market at the time, probably even yet.

I started as an end-user of the product, but fortunately my lack of knowledge limited my ability to fully use the software to get competent results. I was required then to learn more about web developing and its workarounds. Soon after I designed my first theme proposals, all of which were inspired by my own tastes and needs. Giving back to the community had inspired me to go beyond and applied to be part of the support and developing teams in the official community forums, up until 2017 when I stepped down from the project as a official team member.

Contributor

During my course using MyBB I have tried to contribute back to the project as much as possible, offering high quality plugins as a third-party developer at the beginning and an official developer later. Having created over 20 free high quality modifications, and contributed to projects beyond my authorship, you can find most of my MyBB projects following the library link at the right.
