Ruby on Rails Dev With Diverse Skill Set
Thank you for reviewing my profile, I'm glad you stopped by! My name is Dave and here's the skill set I can bring to your project or team:
Ruby on Rails Development - Experience with Heroku, AWS, Postgres, Puma, Devise, Pundit, Fog, Paperclip, Carrierwave, Delayed Job, Sidekick, Geocoder, Payola, Stripe, Prawn, Kaminari, Ransack, and a host of other gems (if it is popular, I've probably used it somewhere at least once).
Test Driven Development - I usually run an RSpec, Capybara, Shoulda, FactoryGirl, Selenium, Poltergeist stack.
Front End Development - I've used Bootstrap, Sass, Less, Slim, Haml, and a host of JS frameworks and libraries.
General Development - I keep everything under version control and can help set up Git workflows, deployment pipelines, and continuous integration.
Other skills that could be handy:
Graphic Development and Retouching - 11+ years of Photoshop experience with an extensive focus on photo retouching, complex compositing, and stylized post production.
I'm also a damn fine party planner!
More about me:
I speak natural, native English (with a bit of a Southern accent) and am currently located in the EST timezone.
I am primarily interested development projects that will challenge and expand my knowledge.
I also know that on some projects, being able to jump in and wear multiple hats can be a huge benefit. I am happy to help however I can.
I would enjoy discussing your project / mvp / application / SaaS / hopes and dreams / etc... I do ask that clients agree to a short Skype conversation prior to beginning a new contract so we may review your specs in detail and adequately address all deliverables, expectations, and timelines.
So, if you're still reading, hit me up with a message and let's talk!
