    20+ years expert SQL database designer preferring MySQL and PHP.

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 48 - Portfolio: 4

    I am one of the top database design specialists on Upwork. My sophisticated hand-crafted database design will save your organization significant time and money. I am a serious professional with over 20 years of experience as a programmer and database specialist. My emphasis has been on creating elegant SQL database design integrated with user-friendly front-end software (desktop and web applications). I have worked mainly as a database designer, programmer and database administrator for bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and biomedical research applications. I also have extensive experience programming database-centric software (websites, web applications, desktop applications) for publishing, business, financial, personnel and other purposes. One of the things I enjoy most is creating database schemas which make sense for both programmers and non-programmers, designing with an eye toward flawless data integrity, maximum maintainability and optimal performance. I love crafting websites and web applications which perform with shocking speed. It makes for a better experience for users, developers and administrators. My expertly designed database systems - with well-written queries, intelligently chosen indices, and sensible caching strategies - can easily perform 10 to 100 times faster (using the same underlying hardware). My emphasis when working with clients is on their data and system usability, not specific trends or technologies. But in case you're wondering about some specifics, I strongly believe that the database data should be integrated with but also somewhat independent from a presentation/application layer. Data in the database should be easily accessible from one or many different applications built using one or multiple different technologies. Currently I favor PHP/JavaScript/HTML5 for web applications, RealBasic/Real Studio/Xojo for cross-platform applications [Mac OS X/Windows/Linux], Xcode for Mac OS X-only/iOS applications, Visual Studio for Windows desktop applications. I prefer using MySQL for back-end RDBMS, but I also use Oracle, Microsoft MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL and SQLite on a regular basis. If your data and information organization is already in great shape, and if you are satisfied with how your database-integrated software and website performs, then you probably don't need a high-end expert like me. I can make routine modifications, add to well-crafted existing systems, etc. But so can many other people. But if you're just getting started on a new system that you want done right, or if you suspect your database website programming strategy needs an overhaul, then I can get you on the right track in a short amount of time. * * * * * * * * Let me mention a few of the client-friendly policies and practices I apply with all my clients. I don't do these things to distinguish myself from other contractors. (I would hope they all do the same.) I do these simply because this is how I would want to be treated if I was the client: - You don't need to have your own web servers; I can host development and/or live production work on my own high-capacity servers. - I don't mind working on a client's servers, or doing dev work on my servers and transfering finished work to client's servers. - I do not charge clients any fees for hosting their websites or software systems, or for moving their websites or software systems elsewhere. - I provide clients with root log-in access to all the work I do for them; you are welcome to log into the server (cPanel, FTP, and phpMyAdmin) at any time and copy or back-up or move any work I do for you. - If I am working for you, all work product, all source code, all database design belongs to you. Always. Period. - I am happy to work with you and/or other programmers you enlist to work on a project; I am happy to pass off development work. - I do not provide mysterious "black box" solutions. I am happy to have you look under the hood at everything I do. You don't need to know anything at all about the inner workings of a system. Or you're welcome to ask about the most intricate details. - If we're developing a system from scratch, I prefer to do so using very widely-available technologies (PHP/MySQL/JavaScript/HTML5) which you can hire countless other people to work on if you decide to have other developers work on your system. - Do not be embarrassed to ask ANY question! I enjoy working with clients who have zero technical know-how in programming/databases/etc., partially because I appreciate their expertise in OTHER fields (real estate, art, medicine, law, science, civics, etc.) If you already know everything about databases and programming you probably wouldn't need me, would you?

    Instructional Designer / E-Learning Specialist

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 3

    E-learning perfectly combines my artistic/ creative design talent with my passion for training, development, and education. Having worked with both Instructor-Led Training and Computer Based Training in my past management experiences, it is a pleasure to be on the development/ design end of production. I feel it is imperative to tap into the knowledge of what drives motivating, successful education in training across industries. I have found the trick is presenting the material in such a way that is interesting and engaging to the presentee and in turn effective as a training tool. I earned my Bachelors degree in Psychology with an emphasis on Development & Education as well as a minor in Visual Arts from The University of California, San Diego. I have spent over 10 years in staff development, building effective and efficient teams through my roles in management. While putting a special focus on driving individual strengths and positive working environments. My experience has led me to a proficient understanding of sales, customer service, revenue management, staff development, and creative thinking. My artistic repertoire includes such experience as: Custom mural design, advertising & marketing, Jewelry design, fabrication, and course outline/instruction, PowerPoint Development & Design, Storyboarding, and development in Articulate Storyline. I am detail oriented and enjoy challenging myself to learn new skills, develop, and grow.

    UX/UI Designer

    Croatia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 20

    For the past 20 years I've been involved in all aspects of web development so I have a clear understanding of what's possible and what should be avoided. Areas where I feel most comfortable are design and project planning, including wireframing and prototyping, but I still love to write a line or two of code, animate a banner or help with SEO and internet marketing. I'm very passionate about cross-platform user experience. I like to think things through before designing anything but once I do start designing I'm in a whole different universe. With every project, my goal is to convey your message in a clear and easy to understand way while giving users an unique visual journey. My client list consists of companies like Microsoft, Dell & Coca-Cola but my favourite client is a fresh start-up with a wonderful idea. If you are one of those, I'd love to help you get your product off the ground.

    Expert Graphic Designer with over 6 years experience.

    Pakistan - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 24

    Over the past 6 years, I have worked with numerous national and international clients, helping them achieving their target customers and bringing them the required quality that their brands need. Your brand and product may be too good, but that can only be known after it has been used. Prior to that, it all comes down on your advertisement tactic, which primarly consists of your designed graphics. Proper graphic designing is an art, which I am absolutely capable of managing. I know the ins and outs of graphic designing, and the importance of unique, highly creative and attractive designs, which are the vital keys to your business's success.
