    WordPress/PHP Expert with Writing/Editing and Photo Skills

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 12

    I'm your personal WordPress Guru, with database, photo editing, and writing skills thrown in. I can set up your site from scratch or jump in to an existing site needing changes. I can implement to your preferred specifications, or provide input and advice on how best to proceed. I'm a native English speaker with an extremely high technical skill level and over 13+ years of website development experience. I am proficient in a variety of coding languages and protocols, with particular expertise in Wordpress, HTML, CSS, PHP, both MySQL/MSSQL databases, and some SEO. I can provide graphic and photo services as well as design feedback. I also have a great deal of experience in writing and editing, both technical and non-technical materials. I am very good at communicating both with technicians/engineers and non-technical clients to translate needs and desires into workable engineering and web-based solutions. I hold both a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science and a Master's Degree in Business Administration. I am organized, articulate, and responsible. Your projects will be completed professionally and to your complete satisfaction. Thank you for your consideration! **NOTE** Please disregard the number of "Projects in Progress" that ODesk displays; I have a number of clients who use my services heavily for awhile, but then need nothing for weeks. Rather than starting a new contract each time, we pause the contract, but this still displays as an active contract. Please contact me to determine my actual availability.

    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.
