Christopher James

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

United States - 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,, Infusionsoft, Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, eWay, 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.

Shannon Christensen Agency Contractor

Fast, Friendly and Expert Web Design

Canada - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 25

Among the the top 15 upWork Web Developers in Canada (1000 + work hours). Welcome to my profile :) I'm a website developer from Canada. If you are in need of a website or site re-design I can have things in place for you in a matter of hours including (if required) a domain name, hosting account and a fully functioning website. I can provide you with the most basic of websites or an advanced site with pretty much any option you can imagine. I have 5 KEY goals in web development. From the very beginning of each project I aim to provide the client with: 1. a website with the best security features (to protect against hackers) and backup solutions; 2. a website that the client can maintain independently, ensuring there is never a need to pay someone for website maintenance/updating content. 3. optimized SEO (search engine optimization) code to increase search engine ranking; 4. responsive design that optimizes proper display on various devices and screen sizes (mobiles and handhelds); 5. screencast tutorials on how to update and maintain your (specific) website. You will be able to use the screencasts to help guide you through processes and pause/continue whenever you need to. I work with several Content Management Systems (CMS) including Wordpress, CMS Made Simple and Magento but have experience with many others as well. I have quite a bit of experience in developing ecommerce sites and multilingual sites. I also have experience designing logos and web graphics. For those who are not yet sure what they want for their website, I can guide you through the web design process and help you make good decisions with suggestions and examples. For those who know exactly what they want I can work with or without an existing CMS (I can code HTML sites). I can also alter CMS themes, templates, stylesheets and plugins. I work from home and my English is exceptional (both spoken and written) so communication is never a concern. Communication is important to me and I prefer discussing projects via telephone or skype, either during the work day or evenings. Professionalism is very important to me and I am very reliable and competent. I am personable, friendly and enjoy helping others incorporate solutions into their website that meet their needs. My support is ongoing and does not end when your project is complete! If there are ever any issues with your website I will do my best to help you find solutions :)

My search for the best development framework ended when I started Ruby/Rails in 2006. Finally a framework that is designed out of the box to work they way I program (DRY). I'm looking for interesting/challenging TDD Ruby on Rails projects. Being good at unix gives me the advantage of being well able to do deployments, from as easy as Heroku to Capistrano style deployments.

Geoff Hackworth

Experienced iPhone/iPad/Watch Developer

United Kingdom - Tests: 15 - Portfolio: 19

I am a highly-skilled software engineer and computer science graduate with 24 years of professional experience. Software development is my greatest skill and I have an incredible attention to detail and perseverance in getting the job done, and done well. I've been developing native Objective-C iOS apps for over 4 years. I don't use tools like PhoneGap or Appcelerator. I have direct experience with Apple's policies, device capabilities and account management procedures from publishing my own apps (see my portfolio for screenshots and iTunes links). By hiring me you would benefit from my extensive skills and experience. Technologies change, but first-class analysis, design, development, testing and debugging skills can only be built from many years of hard work and real-life development experience. I work from home in a distraction-free environment using a Mac with dual 23" monitors. For good test coverage I own several iOS devices: iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, 1st generation iPad, 3rd generation iPad, retina iPad mini, iPad Air 2 and 42mm Apple Watch. I don't believe you can get the true "feel" of an app by just using the simulator. For client testing, I can use TestFlight to deliver builds throughout the project. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. I'm looking forward to working with high-quality product designers and creating some great apps together.
