    Consultant, Project Manager, Full-Stack Dev, Sysadmin and Designer

    Canada - Last active: 11/18/2014 - Tests: 3

    As a full-stack developer with transferable skills and close attention to details, I am able to handle projects from start to finish with minimal supervision because I have an excellent general sense of what a product should and shouldn't do. I’ve designed and implemented many software systems. In most of the positions I’ve held, I’ve been involved in the full life-cycle of the project, from requirement analysis, initial design and implementation through to deployment and production support. My strongest technical expertise currently lies with Python (Django, Flask), PHP (Zend Framework, Laravel, Yii, FuelPHP, CodeIgniter), JavaScript (jQuery, AngularJS, Ember.js, Node.js), mobile apps (PhoneGap/Cordova and Corona SDK) and responsive web design with HTML5 and CSS3. I have also worked with a range of other languages and technology stacks, including Ruby, Perl, Shell scripting, Java, C#, Go, Lua and more.

    I only work on hourly projects. Thanks! A fast learner and problem solving oriented programmer. I am a Web Developer and loving it! Do contact me to start a discussion about your project and how I can help! Work Policy: * I never bill for learning time. If a feature/project requires me to learn something new, I won't bill you since I'm already adding value via the newly acquired knowledge. * I try to deliver the best quality possible, but this is often a trade-off between time, budget, and the specific project situation. (For example, not all clients would want the time/money investment to create a full unit test suite) * I'll be honest. For example, I like giving suggestions on how to save time/money even if that means less billed hours for me. Frameworks I've used: Zend Framework, CodeIgniter, Drupal, Wordpress, ExpressionEngine, jQuery, YUI, a bit of Symfony, Ruby On Rails, Symfony, Flask. Technologies I've used: SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, Ruby, BASH, mySQL, PostgreSQL, Python.
