    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.

    Vietnam - Last active: 26 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 7

    Professional guru with 6+ years of experience in web development. I can work individually or quickly put together a team of highly experienced developers and designers. I used to be a full stack developer. For the past 3 years, I have been focusing on only two things: - Front-end development - WordPress As I focus only on this, my turnaround time is extremely fast and it would help you save a lot of time and cost. With the quality guaranteed, it would also save you much effort of coming back and forth to test for bugs. And as a full stack developer, I know exactly what a back-end developer would need, so my front-end code is always prepared for all the cases. The code is high quality, semantic, well-documented, clean with minimum duplication, readable with white spaces, and easy to maintain and extend. I'm also a pixel-perfect person, but since the product must work perfectly on all screen sizes, I'll take initiative and amend if it's off the grid. I can quickly adapt a desktop design to tablet and phone screen sizes. My passion is making responsive sites (compatible with tablets/mobiles) with focus on performance, SEO optimization, and user experience (UI/UX): - HTML5, CSS3, CSS 3d transition. - SASS/SCSS, LESS, Neat/Bourbon, Foundation, Twitter Bootstrap. - Javascript, jQuery, Angular JS. - Building single-page web applications which work seamlessly with RESTful API web services. - Git, Github, Bitbucket, Subversion (SVN). - Very proficient with Photoshop. - I have my own server for demo purpose and a private Git server in case you need.
