    As you can see from my profile, my reviews speak for themselves. I’ve helped hundreds of clients achieve their goals in areas of web development, app building, advanced coding and more. Even though the quality of my work should garner a higher profile rate, I love impressing my clients with a great experience in helping them achieve their goals. I work VERY FAST and can limit your costs - while keeping the quality of work as high as you’ve ever hired here on Upwork. One thing you will notice about my work is I’m very efficient, and am a fluent communicator. Most of the profile rates you will find on Upwork do not come with these very important additions that I offer - and you would definitely be getting that with me. Nothing is worse than a client that is uncommunicative and doesn’t truly care about your success. I care about your results and want you to achieve them in the shortest amount of time as possible! Here are just some of the services I am currently offering clients - most of these I have been doing for the last 8 years or longer in the web development space.

I’m definitely your guy and have the capability of getting it done in the shortest amount of time for you. If you need a brand new website built in the most affordable type of framework - I’m your guy. I also am actively helping clients accomplish their goals on many complex interfaces. There really isn’t any sort of platform I don’t have expertise in since I have been in the web development space for so long. These are just a few... Azure Web App Azure AI Azure Cloud Service Azure Worker Roles Azure Web Roles Azure Storage Queues Since there is so much more I have experience in, here are just a few more areas that I’m actively helping clients accomplish their goals in. I love doing this type of work! SDLC Process Support Designing Coding Testing and Maintenance Follow Scrum with standards-based code using Visual Studio Team Foundation Server with Version Control and Git Troubleshoot and resolve system performance issues and problems Have some sort of issue with your website and/or app? Here are the latest web technologies that I am helping other clients with. AI and ML XHTML HTML CSS Javascript frameworks Jquery AJAX MVC AngularJS Agile - Scrum Development Processes Migration of websites/applications on cloud platforms (Azure/AWS) As you can see, my English writing skills are very good which I know is important to many clients looking for quality Upwork sub-contractors. I’m a very friendly guy, easy to get-along with, and can provide vision as well as technical expertise to any project you are looking to build out. I can understand the mindset of limiting your costs to build frameworks and fixing websites is at the front of your mind. Let me join your team and I will be exactly what you need to help take your business idea/concept to the next level! Look forward to hearing from you, Bhanu

    Having worked as a programmer, hardware designer, and manager, I have both the technical skills and the business expertise to help you achieve your goals with a project. In addition, my years of experience have helped clients avoid the disasters that software projects can easily become. I have been involved with projects that significantly increased the number of calls a tech could handle, reduced returns by more accurately tracking similar failures and suggesting additional steps that need to be taken. Clients have seen improved profits, reduced complaints, and fewer problems as a result of software I've written. I know how to design a project from the start to reduce the overall cost, and how to analyze requirements to ensure that the software can achieve the desired goals. Major projects have included a complete Repair Tracking and integrated accounting package for a Depot Repair facility. Repair tracking, which integrated with a separate accounting package and UPS and FedEx shipping programs. A Call Log tracking and issues database for a Tech Support Center, and a Job and Services management tool for a Landscaping firm. My C++ work has included projects that interface with other proprietary hardware, printers, RFID readers, and other devices. I have also completed projects using C, Assembler, and embedded software. (My combined hardware, software, and business skills background enable me to tackle a wide range of projects.) I've been involved in more small projects than I could possibly remember.

How to Hire Top Azure SQL Developers

How to hire Azure SQL developers

If you’re looking to migrate your physical IT infrastructure to the cloud, an Azure SQL specialist can help you navigate the platform’s family of SQL cloud databases to find the best storage solution for your software project. 

So how do you hire Azure SQL developers? What follows are some tips for finding top Azure SQL developers consultants on Upwork.

How to shortlist Azure SQL development professionals

As you’re browsing available Azure SQL development consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the professionals you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Technology fit. You want an Azure SQL developer who understands the technologies behind your software development projects. 
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for specific skills and experience (e.g., running a full instance of SQL Server on Azure VM).
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular Azure SQL developer.

How to write an effective Azure SQL developer job post

With a clear picture of your ideal Azure SQL developer in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

Create a simple title that describes exactly what you’re looking for. The idea is to target the keywords that your ideal candidate is likely to type into a job search bar to find your project. Here are some sample Azure SQL developer job post titles:

  • Seeking an Azure SQL developer for our business app
  • Looking for a back-end developer experienced with Azure SQL
  • Need a data architect with Azure SQL expertise

Azure SQL development project description

An effective Azure SQL development job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From back-end development to database migrations, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries, software, or developer tools, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

Azure SQL developer responsibilities

Here are some examples of Azure SQL developer job responsibilities:

  • Design and implement an Azure SQL database solution for our enterprise app
  • Assist with migration of data from on-premises hardware to the cloud
  • Handle upgrades, maintenance, and backups

Azure SQL developer requirements and qualifications

Be sure to include any requirements and qualifications you’re looking for in Azure SQL developers. Here are some examples:

  • Desired Azure SQL technology (e.g., Azure SQL Database, SQL Managed Instance, SQL Server on Azure VM)
  • Preferred deployment model (e.g., single database, elastic pool)
  • Serverless architectures
  • Database management

Azure SQL Developers FAQ

What is Azure SQL development?

Azure SQL is a family of database solutions that use the SQL Server Database Engine in the Azure cloud. It supports three main database management options:

  • Azure SQL Database: A cloud-based relational database management system that supports serverless computing. 
  • Azure SQL Managed Instance: A fully managed instance as a service (IaaS) solution for SQL server apps that makes on-premises database migrations to the cloud easier.
  • SQL Server on Azure VMs: Allows you to run the full version of SQL Server on Azure virtual machines.

How much does it cost to hire an Azure SQL developer?

The first step to determining the cost to hire an Azure SQL developer will be to define your needs. Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

Cost factor #1: project scope

The first variable to consider when determining scope is the nature of the work that needs to be completed. Not all Azure SQL development projects are created equal. Setting up basic cloud storage for a website with Azure SQL will typically take less time than migrating a legacy enterprise app to a serverless architecture with Azure SQL Managed Instance. 

Tip: The more accurately your job description describes the scope of your project, the easier it will be for talent to give you accurate cost estimates and proposals.

Cost factor #2: Azure SQL developer experience

Choosing the right level of expertise for the job is closely tied to how well you determined the scope of your project. You wouldn’t need an advanced Azure SQL developer to handle the basic database maintenance of a small-business intelligence app. Hiring a less experienced Azure SQL developer who can perform routine updates, patches, and SQL queries for your organization can save you money.

Beyond experience level, you need to consider the type of experience the talent possesses. The following table breaks down the rates of the typical types of Azure SQL developers you can find on Upwork.

Rates charged by Azure SQL developers on Upwork

Types of Azure SQL Developers

Description

Hourly Rate

SQL Developer

Proficient in SQL. Experienced with database management, migration, tuning, and automation.

$40-60+

Back-End Developer

Can use Azure SQL as the database technology for the back end of a website. Also able to leverage other web technologies including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. 

$30-60+

Full-Stack Azure Developer

In addition to Azure SQL, proficient across the Microsoft Azure cloud technology stack. May possess certification in Microsoft SQL Server (e.g., MCSE, MCSA, MCITP).

$60-100+


 

Cost factor #3: location

Location is another variable that can impact an Azure SQL developer’s cost. It’s no secret that you can leverage differences in purchasing power between countries to gain savings on talent. But it’s also important to factor in hidden costs such as language barriers, time zones, and the logistics of managing a remote team. The real advantage to sourcing talent remotely on Upwork is the ability to scan a global talent pool for the best possible person for the job. Location is no longer an obstacle. 

Cost factor #4: independent contractor vs. agency

The final variable regarding talent cost is hiring an independent contractor vs. an agency. An agency is often a “one size fits all” model, so you’ll often have access to a designer, a project manager, an engineer, and more. When hiring individuals you have total autonomy regarding who is responsible for which part of the project, but you’ll need to source each of those skills separately.

The trade-off between hiring individuals vs. hiring an agency is the level of administrative overhead you incur personally in coordinating tasks among all members of the team. Project scope and personal preference will determine which style is a better fit for your needs.

Azure SQL Development Tips and Best Practices

Take advantage of Managed Instance for migrations

If you’re new to Azure SQL and you have a large number of apps you need to migrate from on-premises or IaaS (infrastructure as a service) to the cloud, Azure SQL Managed Instance was made for you. The platform’s Azure Database Migration Service leverages automation to do much of the heavy lifting traditionally done by a SQL developer. 

Be wary of SQL injection

There’s a reason SQL injection is consistently at the top of the OWASP Top Ten. The practice of inserting malicious code into a string to be executed within the SQL database is one of the oldest hacker tricks on the web. The most common attack vector for SQL injection is through forms where users can input text and information. This is why it’s important to follow best practices for validating all user inputs in your application. Character restrictions, type safety, and the use of multiple layers of validations are examples of things you can do to sanitize data inputs. You can turn to Microsoft’s documentation for a more detailed description of SQL injection best practices.

Consider using Azure SQL Database serverless for intermittent workloads

The traditional approach for working with a single Azure SQL Database is to allocate a fixed amount of computer resources for a fixed price using an hourly billing rate. The drawback to this approach is that it lacks flexibility. You will either pay a premium all the time to ensure performance remains high during peak usage of your software or take the performance hit to save money in the long term. 

Serverless architectures allow you to allocate resources as needed depending on usage data. Azure SQL Database serverless uses compute autoscaling to ensure resources are continuously scaled to match actual app demand for compute resources. You pay only for the compute resources you actually use, saving you money for intermittent usage patterns. The primary trade-off is that if your usage patterns are consistent and predictable, you could save more money using the traditional provisioned compute resource approach. It’s important to factor in the costs based on your existing usage data when deciding how you want to be billed.
