    Hi, I'm Niels, a seasoned software engineer based in Germany mostly working on web applications of all kinds using Ruby on Rails (3 and 4), (My)SQL, mongodb, redis, HTML(5), CSS and JavaScript in an agile manner.

    Luke Jurgs

    Senior PHP/Javascript/SQL Developer

    Australia - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

    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.
