    Senior PHP/Javascript/SQL Developer

    Australia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    Over the last 12 years I've worked with PHP, MySQL/PostgreSQL/MSSQL, JavaScript, HTML/CSS and related web technologies to create a large number of websites and web applications. I've worked for a number of startups and for a large listed company. My strength is the knowledge I have of what the web application stack is capable of, how interacts with the underlying server software/hardware and browser. This insight allows me to build robust, sophisticated and fast software. Most recently I have been building thick client side applications using Backbone.js and Require.js. I believe that the future of consumer software is going to be dominated by this type of software stack. It gives me great pleasure to be building the future right now. I also have excellent Ubuntu/Debian/CentOS Linux administration skills and have managed a large number of different servers. If you're after a serious and capable programmer then look no further.
