    XHTML/CSS/Flash/Photoshop/Illustrator Pro in Seattle, USA

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 3

    Over the last several years I have developed many websites using a variety of methods. I enjoy the flexibility that CSS/XHTML provides, so that is my medium of choice - all of my work is standards-compliant (XHTML 1.0 strict), and I have also converted many outdated sites into standards-compliant sites with table-free CSS layouts and improved functionality, leading to a better overall user experience. In addition to web coding, I have extensive experience in photography and traditional graphic design. My goal is always to produce sites that are as visually appealing as they are functional. I also have experience working with ColdFusion, Flash, PHP, JavaSript, and related technologies, and can convert PSD files into themes for Wordpress, Joomla, osCommerce, and similar formats, with great attention to detail and retention of full functionality. I believe in keeping 'the big picture' in mind - I incorporate SEO techniques into every project, and plan projects to allow for future expansion and updates.

    Engineer in Computer Science - Developer - Research

    France - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 15 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello, I am a 27 years old engineer in Computer Science from France. After graduating from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées of Rennes, I moved over to Sweden to follow a master program on Mobile Systems. Meanwhile, I was also working as a freelance web-developer/project co-leader for a Canadian company. While learning, I participated as a trainee to many professional project and learn to be flexible both in my ways of working in a team and on the technologies to use. Indeed, even so my major programming languages are Java and PHP, I could easily learn C# during my master thesis in Sweden and build up a nice piece of software to work with Sifteo cubes. Software architecture and system design are two of my strong background points, thus I thrive in realizing project from the beginning until the end. My professional experiences involved many non programmer and non computer scientist customers and allowed me to train establishing their needs and to translate them into sprints, backlog and deadlines. I also believe that knowledge in computer science without knowledge of the real world are wasted hence my interests for books, sail, roller-skating, ice hockey as well as environmental questions for instance. Looking forward to working with you.

    I'm web scraping expert/full stack developer with 7+ years of commercial experience. I'm good problem solver holding M.S. in maths and computer science. Today I'm offering webscraping/php/javascript services as a freelancer. My main skills: • Web scraping, parsing, automation, data processing • Simplehtmldom, Goutte, Symfony Browser Kit, Cheerio, CasperJS, Regular Expressions, Xpath • PHP, JavaScript, Java, NodeJS, PhantomJS, LUA • HTML5, CSS3, LESS, Bootstrap Framework • MySQL, MongoDB, Redis • Memcached, ZeroMQ, ReactPHP • SocketIO, Websockets • REST, SOAP, XML, JSON • Matlab, Wolfram Mathematica • Jquery, KnockoutJS, BackboneJS, RequireJS • Prestashop, OpenCart • Experience working with APIs: Ebay, Spotify, Amazon AWS, Amazon MWS, Flickr, Facebook Graph, Vk.com, GitHub, Instagram and several others • Git, SVN • Apache, Nginx, Curl • Amazon AWS • Linux, Vagrant • Understanding of OOP principles and software design patterns • Teamwork experience I have a github account and personal blog. Unfortunately Upwork doesn't allow to share these details in overview:) Over the years I’ve developed a lot of web scrapers of different complexity mostly using PHP (simplehtmldom, browserkit) and NodeJS/PhantomJS (casperjs). Some were simple regex-based and others were complex distributed systems with multiple proxies and Amazon AWS support. Also I developed a wide range of websites using PHP, HTML, JavaScript, CSS and MySQL including several e-commerce websites (+ Prestashop, Opencart). I built sites both from scratch and using frameworks, developed custom modules and extended existing ones for my clients. I have experience in PHP/MySQL performance tuning.

I’ve implemented distributed message queues, realtime leaderboards with Redis, Mysql, PHP. Developed battle-related algorithms (game unit classes, attack/defend, shortest path, quadtree). Then I’ve done some frontend development, e.g. – developed embeddable javascript classifieds widget and fitness/health single page web application with realtime updates/notifications (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Jquery, Knockout.js, MomentJS, REST, AJAX, Socket.io).

    Web developer

    Russia - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 12

    Lately my work is about integrating Bitcoin-related functionality in websites or developing special purpose apps, like a bitcoin trading bot or a websocket chat. It involved various technologies: node.js, websockets, Ruby, Sinatra framework, Blockchain.info API, PayPal API. During the years of my work prior to this I've performed a big variety of tasks in developing and reworking websites. This involved a lot of programming with PHP+MySQL, layout works with HTML+CSS, Javascript (with and without jQuery), AJAX. I had experience working with various CMSs: OpenCart, Joomla!, Wordpress, MODx Revolution, DataLife Engine, SimplaCMS, self-written websites. Also with different frameworks: MODx, Yii, also self-written MVC structures. I also use regular expressions (RegExp) fluently and have quite some experience with that. I've integrated a number of payment systems in several websites, which included PayPal, Bitcoin (native and via Blockchain.info API) and russian WebMoney, Yandex.Money, QIWI, Robokassa. All payment processors utilize mainly same principles, so it's no problem to learn and integrate something new quickly. My work included creation of web grabbers and parsers that process information from external websites, for example to fill up an online store database. Also setting up and administrating Linux/FreeBSD VPS servers: installation and configuration of Apache, PHP, MySQL, Python and some other uncommon software. Aside from pure web, I've developed Python and Ruby scripts for various services. A part of that was developing Bitcoin-related services, including API communication with bitcoind daemon, automated receiving/sending Bitcoin payments, trading on BTC exchanges via their API, and other stuff. I'm looking for interesting work opportunities that would let me develop my skills and acquire new ones. Cryptocurrencies are especially interesting to me, but if it's not the case, no problem. Most likely I can be useful to solve your programming issues, so feel free to contact me.
