Community Superstar Aaran McGuire

Boy September went fast. With the new month upon us, it’s time to pick last month’s Community Superstar. A big time congratulations to an active and extremely helpful CodeCanyon author – Aaranmcguire!

Who is Aaranmcguire?

Aaran hails from the UK where if your child’s name has an ‘A’ in it you’re entitled to receive two more at no extra charge. Aaran has been a CodeCanyon author and Marketplace member since 2011 and has already made a big splash on the forums with his helpful attitude.

Here’s what he had to say about himself:

I’m 18 and currently a Computer Technician at my local college where I’m responsible for a wide range of server side and networking stuff, as well as sometimes front-end web development.

I started web development quite young when I bought my first website on an auction site (eBay), and from there I tried to tweak things to get it how I wanted, somehow in the mean time managing to pick up 2 extra languages, PHP and HTML .

I then went on to learn how to create iPhone applications as all I kept hearing was that’s where the money is. My first “Application” was a blend of PHP and Objective C which sent notifications to users via Apple Server. I then somehow found CodeCanyon and uploaded it, managing to make quite a lot of money from just the 1 item.

Currently (in my spare time) I also work with a few people from Envato, helping with web development and building back-end applications.

My plans for the future, possibly become a server engineer, Unix and all that hardcore stuff.

And here’s a photo of the man himself as well as one of several malcontents from the recent UK meetup.

And if you’re wondering about Aaran’s work, be sure to check out his profile, which includes these two beauties:

.P12 to .PEM Converter (PHP)

.P12 to .PEM Converter (PHP)

This is a PHP script to quickly convert them P12 files to a PEM file.

Along with the ultra-cool gold superstar community badge (that only lasts for 12 months!), the prize this month is a 6 month Tuts+ premium subscription, a $30 Rockable ebook voucher and a $20 marketplace credit. Congratulations Aaranmcguire!
