I am a Senior Software Engineer with over 8 years professional experience. I am from New Zealand currently living in Thailand, my time is flexible and I am happy to work hours to fit your needs, I'm easy going & take responsibility for my work.
For the last 4-5 years I have been working in a small team as the Lead Developer on a large scale web application primarily written in JavsaScript with heavy usage of the Sencha ExtJS framework on the front-end, NodeJS on the back-end and Cassandra as the database.
I keep up to date with latest technologies and consider myself a very quick study able to pick up another language or technology in a very short amount of time as needed.
My key areas of expertise are:
- Sencha ExtJS
- Sencha Touch for native and web based mobile development
* PHP - I am a Zend PHP Certified Engineer (http://www.zend.com/en/yellow-pages/ZEND012419)
* MySQL, MongoDB and Cassandra databases
- Special note of experience of expertise with Cassandra NoSQL database for scalability and high availability
* General Linux Administration
- I have been a full time linux user for my day to day computing since 2006 and have configured many web servers and other services on different linux distributions.
* Cloud hosting
- Experience with Rackspace Cloud & Amazon Web Services
I also have experience with Bootstrap, Kockout, SilverStripe, Java, C#, HaXe, HTML/CSS, Git/Github and many more acronyms, libraries and frameworks.
* All my work is version controlled meaning at anytime it can easily be returned to a previous state.
* I try to deliver the best quality possible, but this is often a trade-off between time & budget. I will help find the best balance for the specific project situation.
* I'll be honest, if I am out of my depth I will tell you or if I see how you can save time/money even if that means less billed hours for me I will make suggestions.
