    PHP Web Application Developer: Focused on Zend Framework and APIs

    United States - Last active: 1 day 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.

    E-Learning Guru

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

    My specialty is developing e-learning programs using Flash, AS3, HTML5, PHP, and MySQL. I have my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and started developing e-learning programs in 2008 when I created an online mental health program to teach coping skills to children of divorce as part of my dissertation. Since that time I have made my living working on large e-learning projects with the Faculty at the Penn State and Arizona State University. I harness my expertise in psychology to create e-learning programs that are intuitive, engaging, and effective. I have been using oDesk to help me complete my projects for years and I would like to now expand my work to include managing projects for corporate and non-profit entities outside of academia. What I can offer you is a no-risk, no-hassle, experience as we work together to develop your online learning project. Let me and my experienced team quickly and efficiently make your vision become a reality. I can handle everything that will be needed for your project including script creation, voiceover work, graphic design, web development, and user interface design. I realize (from experience) that it's scary to hire someone without a lot of consumer feedback. Feel free to contact me for references as well as examples of my work and access to my LinkedIn profile and new articles about my work in developing online mental health programs. I will be offering my services at a reduced fee while I build up consumer feedback.

    a nerd with words and often without

    Canada - Last active: 20 days ago - Tests: 6

    I'm what some people might call a "Scientist" and others might call an "Idiot." I spend most of my time doing what the aforementioned people might call "Experiments" or "Random Pointless Things," respectively. When you tinker around in different fields of study, you notice interesting trends. A lot of theories in Linguistics apply to Computer Science, stock trading is a lot like cooking, and the skills you learn in video games can easily be applied to working in Fast Food. You also learn to question things people tell you are fundamental. For example: "Most people that verbs the most important part of a sentence - that it really not a sentence without one. But there no verbs in this sentence, and the message still pretty clear."
