    PHP Web App Developer: Any Framework, APIs and UI. 15+ years (USA)

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 12

    Since 1998 I have developed dozens of web applications focusing on a wide-range of industries including custom search engines, affiliate marketing, real estate solutions and worker safety. As an autodidact, I pride myself on learning new technologies and continually improving my skill-set. As a freelancer, I believe in professionalism, clean code and representing my craft to the highest degree possible. On the server-side, Laravel is my current PHP framework of choice, although I am comfortable working with Zend, CodeIgniter, Cake and Yii. For the database layer, I have 14 years of experience with MySQL. On the client-side, I prefer jQuery, Backbone and Twitter Bootstrap. Although I am not a graphic designer, I know my way around the Adobe software suite. I write standard compliant HTML5 and CSS3. I have an eye for useable, clean and obvious functionality. I have experience with many APIs, including Amazon, Box.net, Infusionsoft, Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, eWay, Authorize.net and Google. I can write APIs from scratch and give your application a RESTful interface. I am seeking opportunities to build custom web applications from the ground up or taking an existing code base and improving upon it.

    PHP Web Application Developer: Focused on Zend Framework and APIs

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4

    I've been in the web development field since 2002, when I started as a programmer/admin for a web hosting company. I've worked on a variety of web applications (generally php/MySQL based) ranging from ecommerce to in-house CMS to data mining/feed processing to integrating APIs and web services. I've worked with a number of PHP frameworks (Zend, CodeIgniter, CakePHP), and generally like working with a MVC design pattern. I've developed web applications from the ground up, as well as modified and added functionality to existing custom in-house systems, opensource applications, and commercial applications. I've worked with various APIs, including: Twilio, Twitter, Foursquare, Amazon, PayPal, Drop.io, Sunlight Labs, EmailYak, and others. I've written wrappers for APIs, as well as written APIs for outside integration into applications I've written. I am comfortable working with other developers and designers. In addition I've been asked to do code review and troubleshooting for projects where I had no active role. My profile on StackOverflow (http://stackoverflow.com/users/45531/tim-lytle) is a good sample of my ability to communicate the details of a development problem/solution. I'm also a Zend Certified Engineer (http://www.zend.com/store/education/certification/yellow-pages.php#show-ClientCandidateID=ZEND011439) with experience administering apache/mysql/php/etc on Linux (and a bit on Windows). Most of my oDesk clients are buyers who need high-level, conceptual requests to be understood and implemented, and the projects are ongoing long-term relationships.
