    Artist and Programmer

    India - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 1

    Over the time in my professional career, I have started low and climbed up the ladder, held the following positions in Europe, Middle East and India: Technical Support Associate Customer Service Associate Assistant Editor German Language ACL Data Analysis and Software Consultant BI Software Developer / Project Manager Software that I had once developed during my career, has been/or is being used in MNC and Indian companies. I even had a startup once. However my passion lies in Free and Open Source Software, C, GNU/Linux, Android, Java, PHP and Vector Graphics. Having started programming at an early age, at the time when Amiga 500 was still popular, I have come across all types of technologies and even experimented with it. So if you ask me to develop something from A for Ada on Z for System Z, I'd be able to do it. A year ago I felt sickened by the corporate politics and rat race that I quit my job to live my life with less pressure and stress and do the things that I like to do. Since then I have been developing Android Software, porting utilities to ARM and MIPS and working on my private pet projects at my own pace. I haven't been on ODesk since 2011 when I first heard about it on TechCrunch. I thought I'd make a Redux/Comeback to share my knowledge and services and also to make some earnings and friends along the way. I am not here too much for the money, rather for the challenge and fun of doing things. I am quite flexible and I won't hold you at gun point for pennies. Take Care Robert N
