Originally invited to be a plugin developer from the start of the server, I officially joined the development team not long after,
migrating it to a network. I have since maintained the Ubuntu-based infrastructure backend, the 3 websites and a discord bot along with plugin development.
From intrusion detection and prevention to general sysadmin work, I've gained a lot of real world insights into how actual system administration on a cloud might feel like, and it taught me how to code as a team, use CD/CI technologies, and a lot more that I wouldn't have expected from developing a minecraft server.

Ever since I started using Discord back in 2016, it has been my favorite communication platform; Everything just felt intuitive and simple yet customizable.
With this newfound favorite, I started digging into everything it has to offer, and I eventually stumbled upon the officially supported bots and their API.
Having only started programming by then, it proved to be a great opportunity for me to learn and test my skills while making helpful utilities for my daily use. Throughout the years, it has evolved from a single 8ball to 50+ different commands, hardcoded values to per-guild configs, and from one giant class filled with if-elses to a multithreaded framework supporting nested subcommands.
It is currently semi-public as there are still a lot left to do; However, feel free to add it to any servers if you find it useful too 😊

As one of the most fasinating games I've ever played, I've spent countless hours on the technical side of Minecraft, whether it was redstone or command blocks.
Eventually, with a private feature being heavily requested on a server I played frequently back then, I decided: why not try programming it myself and give it to the server instead?
With only basic C knowledge and having only created simple utilities, it proved to be a challenge, but it also was what really sparked my interest in computer science. I created and published several more plugins in the coming years, before moving on to creating custom plugins for vortex network.
