    PHP Web Application Developer: Focused on Zend Framework and APIs

    United States - Last active: 16 days 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.

    Freelance Web Developer

    Canada - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 13

    Over the last few years, I have developped many custom wordpress themes. I also have a variety of useful code written, specifically with regards to creating forms. My immediate goal is to get work building wordpress themes from duplicating an existing Photoshop PSD file. I provide pixel perfect duplication, and can implement a wide variety of features, often using my own code - which save a lot of hassle in trying to learn and modify existing plugins. I am also taking some online courses @ Treehouse to improve my design skills.

    Web Developer, 3D Generalist and Motion Graphic Artist

    United States - Last active: 12/05/2012 - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 11

    I have been freelancing web development, 3d modeling, and motion graphics for over five years. For the past four years I have worked for a product development company creating web tools, animations and 3D models for concept testing. My freelance and current employment have always required an intense amount of creative development, ideation, communication and time management. While freelancing I keep an open dialog with my clients; updating them on project progress, new ideas and improvements if they pop up mid project, and making sure they get what they want and expect at every step. In the past I have built websites from design ideation to launch, created storyboards and motion graphic pieces for tv intros and presentations and have modeled and animated characters. I wear several hats to get projects completed. From modeling, texturing, animating and rendering a logo or character to designing and building a website from start to finish, while also finding the client hosting and securing a domain name. I am extremely ambitions and self motivated. Before owning my own company I was hired as a 3D generalist for a product development company. I successfully convinced the company owner to create a motion graphics position specifically for me. Offering motion graphic pieces increased client interest in the company, as did several web tools I built to improve data mining and streamline internal processes. I was the only person in the company who did web development, 3d modeling and motion graphics. For the four years I was employed at this company part of my animation duties included: creating detailed storyboards based on feedback from several people, animating while receiving critiques and creating all visual elements on short deadlines. Being the only person who modeled, my position entailed: modeling, texturing, staging, lighting and rendering all objects to a high degree of realism. Being the only person who did web development my duties included: coming up with solutions to problems that can be solved through web tools, designing and coding web tools, making sure web programs have no bugs, training coworkers on how to use web tools and updating the company website when necessary. The bulk of my work is created with After Effects and Maya, but I use Flash, Photoshop, and Illustrator almost daily. Web languages I know are HTML, HTML5, XML, CSS, CSS3, Jquery, PHP, MySQL, Actionscript 2/3 and have in-depth knowledge of Wordpress You may be thinking, "What can you do for me?" I have a large skill set, but if I need to learn something new, I will. I work quickly and efficiently, while trying to find the best solution for your web and visual needs. All my projects are completed with the highest technical and design skills. I graduated with a BFA in Animation and Game Design, but I have an AAS in Visual Arts so I know about layout, color and design. Lastly, I meet my deadlines and complete what I start.

    Expert Front End Developer - WordPress, Sass, Haml, Responsive Design

    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 5

    Hi, I’m Jill Molloy, a Front End Web Developer with a background in Web Design. I’m currently living in Santa Monica, California. I am an experienced WordPress theme developer. I can create a theme from scratch, including custom functionality, custom posts and any other requirements. I can design the theme myself or I can work from provided designs or HTML/CSS sources. I am also experienced working in the Ruby on Rails framework, fully utilising the asset pipeline along with technologies such as Sass, Haml and erb. I write my CSS using Sass as a pre-processor and I compile it with Grunt.js. I am a very experienced Sass developer, working with it as long as I have been developing websites. I am very comfortable working with JavaScript and jQuery and I have some experience working with Angular.js. I also provide a consultation and code review service. If you have already hired a developer and you'd like someone to review their code and suggest improvements then I can help. If you're looking to start a new project and you're not quite sure where to being, contact me and I'll create you a complete development strategy based on your expectations and timings. I really enjoying taking on challenging projects that require me to think and push my skills further than before. I have a hard time walking away from a problem before it is solved and I enjoy working in teams of talented individuals that will provide alternate perspectives and approaches to the tasks at hand.
