    Web Master PHP/J2EE with good JS/CSS skills

    France - Last active: 08/27/2014 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

    I do web development since 10 years. Over last years I worked in big IT companies as Analyst Programmer and architect. I like to understand all aspects of the projects I am on, from functional point of view to technical point of view even on big multi team projects. I think that wide understanding is the only way to ensure quality and time at the end. I always suggest quality solution before time saving ones. All the projects I did, required strong J2EE or PHP skills but also needed a lot of client side knowledge HTML5, JS, AJAX, CSS and accessibility which became my second specialty. I often did support to other developers on those parts. Other projects and personal works gave me experiences in data migration using Talend, Model Driven Engineering, OpenERP, Debian and Xen system admin. * I'm looking for web projects with good quality requirement to work as part of your development team or single freelance managing the whole project. I like to always stay in contact with manager and team and keep track of work. * I can provide private project management web application (redmine) for ticketing, versioning, wiki ... and private SVN server on my personal platform.
