    Full Stack -- iOS, Android, 2D/3D Games, WordPress, Backend, Photoshop

    Netherlands - Last active: 13 days ago - Tests: 9

    I am an enthusiast in computer hardware and programming. I specialize in high-performance mobile apps, creative 2D/3D game design and development, and also fancy websites and back-end services. I started computing when I was 10, so technically I have nearly 20 years of IT experience. Professionally in my early years, I have done mostly mundane and performance-oriented C#, Java and Oracle database administration. I used to build computers, overclock them, and write software to torture the hell out of them. Now, I'm more orienting myself to building high-quality mobile apps, creative and well-polished games that could become as popular as Angry Birds, and high-profile websites that might possibly "dominate the world". Here are some assets that are in my arsenal of skill set: LANGUAGES: Objective-C, Swift, Java, C++/C#, PHP, Python PLATFORMS & FRAMEWORKS: Cocoa, iOS/Android SDK, Cocos2D, PhoneGap, Xamarin, Corona SDK, WordPress/Magento/Joomla, AngularJS, Node.js, Microsoft .NET SKILLS: iOS 6-8, Android, Box2D, OpenGL, Unity, Facebook/Twitter API, Instagram, Google Map API/GeoLocation, Parse.com, Firebase, Openfire/XMPP, HTML5/CSS3, jQuery, REST/SOAP, XML/JSON, Ajax, MySQL/Oracle Database Administration, SEO, Photoshop, Illustrator, Web design
