    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.

    PHP Web App Developer: Any Framework, APIs and UI. 15+ years (USA)

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 12

    Since 1998 I have developed dozens of web applications focusing on a wide-range of industries including custom search engines, affiliate marketing, real estate solutions and worker safety. As an autodidact, I pride myself on learning new technologies and continually improving my skill-set. As a freelancer, I believe in professionalism, clean code and representing my craft to the highest degree possible. On the server-side, Laravel is my current PHP framework of choice, although I am comfortable working with Zend, CodeIgniter, Cake and Yii. For the database layer, I have 14 years of experience with MySQL. On the client-side, I prefer jQuery, Backbone and Twitter Bootstrap. Although I am not a graphic designer, I know my way around the Adobe software suite. I write standard compliant HTML5 and CSS3. I have an eye for useable, clean and obvious functionality. I have experience with many APIs, including Amazon, Box.net, Infusionsoft, Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, eWay, Authorize.net and Google. I can write APIs from scratch and give your application a RESTful interface. I am seeking opportunities to build custom web applications from the ground up or taking an existing code base and improving upon it.

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello, thanks for your interest. I'd love to work on your project, however I'd like to set a few conditions if you hire me. If there is more than 1 dev on the team I insist on peer review and a version control system - I prefer git & github however I'm not opposed to bitbucket and gitlab. Even if I'm the only dev, we should probably use a version control system. I'm also a firm believer in writing tests so changes in one part of the code will not break other parts, it's saved my bacon several times. Testing is one reason why I love working with Flask, and angular.js looks very promising. I would love the opportunity to work on a project that uses angular.js. Even if you don't hire me please implement peer review. That way when you hire me in the future your team is already set up with good habits. Here are a few good articles on the importance of peer review. http://www.techrepublic.com/article/developers-guide-to-peer-reviews/ http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rational/library/11-proven-practices-for-peer-review/ Now that I'm done with the peer review PSA (Public service announcement.) Allow me to brag about myself. Over the last 11 years I have taught myself how to program in PHP and Python. I entered my first Basic program into a computer when I was in 3rd grade. I love using jQuery to make a site pop. I run my own .com from home with a Linux server on site. This has given me much insight into how servers are maintained, and backed up. I have set up and maintained the following servers Postfix(email), Apache(http), Nginx(http), Open-ssh(ssh) and used Supervisor and Gunicorn to deploy python web apps. I'm also an avid listener to several podcasts, such as Security Now, Linux Action Show, Techsnap and Coder Radio just to name a few of my favorites. Due to the nature of the NDA (Non-disclosure agreement) I can not list what sites/companies I've worked for, I will however tell you what we've used, and a vague description of the work we've done. On a couple of different projects we've used basic google maps, twitter, and facebook api. Some other common js/css libraries are moment.js, bootstrap, and chosen jquery plugin. Most recently I've been doing backend work. This include python, Flask, Flask's restful api to build the backend for an iphone/android app as well as a web front end to administer the data. The iphone/android dev team created the app with Sencha which I deployed using an nginx server. I also helped develop booking software. This includes reports, calendar, artist/user profiles, timezone management, traveling, accommodations, fees, commissions, venues, repertoire and currency conversion. To date, this has been the most challenging and rewarding project for me. The team I work with are extremely talented. We used Python, Flask, Mako, MongoDB, jQuery, Backbone.js, Underscore.js and Java. With another project we parsed PDFs about [undisclosed] and put the information into a database that could then be searched through based on the information mentioned in the PDFs as well as attaching an expiration date to the information parsed. Other accomplishments include a picture labeling program for HUD home inspections that would insert images into a .doc file when needed. It used a lot of jQuery/ajax calls to assign a case number, address, city, state, zip, and classification with lots of auto-complete. The database was MySQL, and I used headless instance of OpenOffice/LebraOffice with a the pyuno bridge to generate the .doc files. I hosted/managed this site for several years, and developed it as new features were needed. I parsed PDF files to get case information, as well as cut out specific pages that needed to be printed, and sorted them out for specific agents. For another project we used a combination of MongoDB, SOLR, MySQL and CodeIgniter. At the time I left we were in a transitional stage converting the site from an affiliate e-commerce/auction model to an advertising model. This project started out using MongoDB and eventually migrated to MySQL. In my spare time I'm developing a Family Media Player https://github.com/the7erm/fmp-pg It uses pygtk to render it's gui, postgresql for it's database, and gstreamer to play the audio/video. I've been focusing my development efforts on creating a web frontend that utilizes Flask so it can all be controlled via a phone or tablet.

    I turn your ideas into working software.

    United States - Last active: 22 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 27

    My dad knew I was a programmer before I did. He bought me that first book when I was about 10. That was 28 years ago. I am a programmer with major project experience in every major language, platform, and operating system. I love working with small companies and startups. Whether you need someone to lead your team, program into the wee hours of the night, or just need someone to talk to, I can help. As your next Virtual CTO or chief architect, I can help translate your ideas into working software. As a full stack programmer, I provide frontend programming, backend programming, mobile programming, and infrastructure buildout. Whether solo or as your team lead, I bring years and depth of experience to your business. I tell people that I am a thinking programmer. Not a "ninja", or a "rock star", or someone who "bangs out code". I am not a "Ruby guy" or a "PHP guy", or an "Agile guy" or a "Waterfall guy". I am just your thinking, capable, competent programmer who sees the world in full color and adapts to the situation. Someone who sits down with you and talks plainly about your goals and what it will take to reach them. If I am the right fit, I say so. If I am not the right person, I tell you that too. Building a technology business requires more than just programming skills. Knowing how to put together servers, infrastructure, networking, security, partner integrations, prototyping, and beta testing are factors which heavily influence your success. So as well as being your programmer, I am also your systems architect and technology advocate. Embedded systems projects are flooding Kickstarter, and I love it. If you need to create and program physical devices using Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, or chipsets from Intel, ARM, and Motorola, I can offer hands-on help and experience. What about video games? Mobile, desktop, or console? I have experience with many of the top game engines including Unity, Unreal, Cry, Game Maker, and many other game development stacks including retro gaming. Or let's create your own game engine and show them all how it's done :) It has been my privilege to work with top brands like Sony, Nestle, NBC, Polaroid, Texas Instruments, Microsoft, and Adobe. As well, I have worked with many promising startups and am honored to be an oDesk Gold Member, an oDesk All-Star, and oDesk Top Rated Freelancer, and an oDesk Verified Web Developer. I have over 2,500 hours clocked on oDesk, a 5-star rating, and am 99% recommended by over 50 clients. Thank you to oDesk and all my clients who helped make this happen for me, it is a HUGE honor. Building hardware and software through oDesk is my full time occupation. I continually learn new ways and approaches to help you avoid costly mistakes and rework in your next project. If you are considering a new venture, a major addition to your existing software, or just need help crossing the finish line, you may be interested in my free ebook titled "Staying Lean". It teaches you how to build your tech startup *without* big budgets and venture capital. The book is free, all I ask in return is the privilege of keeping in touch with you. http://www.benallfree.com/ebook What do I love right now? What should you be looking at to build your next project? Glad you asked! My clients and I love Laravel, Ruby on Rails (RoR), Ionic, Django, AngularJS, Bootstrap, mobile hybrid apps, iOS, Android, PHP, Symfony, jQuery, JavaScript, HTML, mySQL, video, Facebook API, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Andruino, Twitter API, Single Page Applications (SPA), Auth0 (Hosted Identity Management), Composer, Bower, Node and NodeJS, grunt, SASS or SCSS, and much more!

    Well before the World Wide Web was a common phrase as it is today, before most people even owned a home computer I was programming code in a variety of languages for a variety of network related projects back when you had to put the handset of a telephone on a 300 baud modem. Trillions of lines of code under my belt and a mind that functions like a computer processing unit I not only understand today's most popular programming languages, I know how the languages themselves came to be. I am an expert who has owned, operated or worked with thousands of technology based businesses over the past 25 years. More than a programmer, I am a valuable consultant to any business wishing to build or improve any online enterprise. My work is relatively fast, accurate, functional and most importantly well constructed based on your exact needs. I do all of my own work but will bring in experts if necessary to accomplish the goals of your organization. I am an American living in Pennsylvania.
