    John Comeau

    expert troubleshooter, generalist developer, tenacious problem solver

    United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    "Jack of all trades, master of none" is typically said in a derogatory fashion, but I adopt the title gladly, and you will not likely find more than a few dozen generalists worldwide who can match my troubleshooting and problem-solving skills. I've been programming, on and off, for 40 years, if you count my study of BASIC in 1968, 6 years before I actually got my hands on a computer: the DECSystem-10 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. As a result of working on computers and microcontrollers of various sizes and capabilities over the years, I have learned to get to the basics of a problem, come up with a prototype solution, and refine it to the customer's satisfaction. My methodology, which I found later is used by many successful programmers, is "build one to throw away"... once the code is working, rewrite it from scratch, correcting the false assumptions made in the first attempt, and refactoring to make a clean, maintainable, codebase. My background in both the electrical/electronics side of things plus years of experience reverse-engineering and improving software on dozens of different architectures gives me the rounded background necessary to take on projects which leave specialists lost. I may charge more than most ($100 is my usual rate, but I found it's unrealistic on Odesk), but when you've run up against a brick wall, I can likely find a way over, around, or through it.

  6. WA King

    WA King

    Professional writer, copywriter and journalist

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago

    After years as both a dedicated journalist and touring comedian, I have developed an effective style blending humor with substance. Knowing how to make sentences flow and words move across the page can be a powerful skill. It's a crucial element to successfully interacting with your readership, no matter the platform. In the past my work has focused a good deal on media culture, from film reviews and award shows to even celebrity trial coverage. For five years I penned a Friday column for the Charlotte Observer's entertainment fold-in. simultaneously serving as film critic for Grit Magazine. I also spent two years developing an education curriculum for the Charlotte/Mecklenburg School System's eighth-grade program. I have extensive research experience from my newspaper years, which helped me develop the ability to quickly absorb and understand subjects otherwise foreign to me. ____ I believe all writing should have a natural cadence which coaxes the reader further in. Finding the right balance of information, tone, even flowery expression can be vital to keeping your readers' focus. This can still be accomplished while fully utilizing marketing and SEO techniques, be it for a press release, blog posting or standard reporting. My work can be quick, light and pithy - or largely technical and thick in nature. Whatever the project, it will be streamlined to your specifications and directly targeted to your core audience. Thanks for your consideration.
