    Web Scraping Expert, Automation Developer - Web/Desktop(Linux,Win,OSX)

    India - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 6

    - Web Scraping/Crawling - using NodeJS(Request+CheerioJS), PhantomJS/CasperJS, Python (Scrapy/BeautifulSoup), PERL(Mechanize/LWP) & Java(HtmlUnit), Selenium (and making it headless with XVFB) - General Automation (Web/Browser/Desktop) - Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey scripts - General Scripting (Javascript, Python, PERL, Shell Script) - UNIX command-line tools, VIM Try me. You won't be disappointed. What have I got to offer? I’ve got some really good experience & expertise in automation (web & desktop - Linux, Win & OSX), quick scripting & general coding. You can always trust me with almost any automation/coding requirements (ex. unix command line tools, developing quick scripts, tweaking existing scripts, web scraping/crawling, creating APIs) at a fair price and a very quick turnover. When delivering a piece of code/script, I’ll make sure that it is professionally written (to the highest quality & efficiency) and that it has a proper README file (on using it in your local system/host). Exclusive Experience? Web scraping & web crawling are clearly a part of automation and just here in oDesk, I’ve scraped close to 300 websites (all types - static pages, javascript/AJAX heavy websites, CAPTCHA posing websites, IP banning websites etc.) and I’m pretty comfortable with this. About me? I’m passionate about coding and so I always keep learning something new or look around github for some interesting projects to contribute. To me all programming languages are just a set of syntax rules - anyone with strong DS & Algorithm knowledge can learn and master them in days/weeks. Preferred OS: Linux, Preferred Editor: vim If at all you want to interview me, I’m available at Skype (ID: vdraceil) Looking forward to many great work experiences.

    Specializing in database creation/cleanup, scraping, scripts/utilities

    United States - Last active: 18 days ago - Tests: 1

    Hello, I have extensive experience with the following: • Creating, maintaining, cleaning up databases • Web scraping applications • Creation of scripts and utilities Working with sports related data is a niche area that I have become expert in over the years. I have worked on countless sports related projects involving such things as research generation, database builds, fantasy roster creation, and outcome projection methodology for handicapping. Additionally, I own and maintain databases containing a wealth of information for the NFL, College Football, NBA, College Basketball, MLB, and the NHL. If you have a project in this area, not only can I deliver it, but if needed I can help brainstorm it and might already have on hand the complied data to feed it. I have had a long and successful career history in the traditional workforce and have decided to explore some freelance opportunities online. You will find me to be through and responsive. If you are a client of mine, you and your project will be important to me and I will do whatever I can to make you feel that way. In a high tech world, I believe in old fashion customer service. I am new to this, so I would ask that you give me a try. Thank you for your time.

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 15

    I have 10 years of experience in both web and mobile software development as well as script and utility programming. My current main area of interests is within Data Science including data mining/scraping. I have several years of experience in writing screen scrapers for online data sources (scraping in total more than 500 sites). I will be happy to craft a state of the art product for you using the following techs: Bootstrap, AngularJS, BeautifulSoup, Scrapy. I am familiar with many others, but these are my favorite. WEB BACKGROUND I have wide knowledge of many modern technologies in web development stack -- from low-level networking protocols and system tweaking (debian, nginx) to server-side programming (PHP, Node.js, MySQL, MongoDB, Redis) to client-side programming (HTML5 APIs, Javascript, AngularJS). I could solve the programming task of any complexity for you. I prefer developing complex and unique web services and/or user interfaces rather than creating simple websites which are similar to each other. MOBILE BACKGROUND I am the Owner and CEO of a digital development firm, ebork Developments, LLC, which specializes in the development of mobile applications across all platforms (see below). Strong .NET, Java, Objective-C, and Swift programming skills including low-level performance optimizations and memory management. I not only know how to make an application work, but also know how to make it work fast and smoothly. Good knowledge of Android, iOS, and Windows UI patterns and guidelines. I can prototype any application UI for you. SCRIPT/ UTILITY BACKGROUND I have been writing data scrapers and other data intensive scripts/ utilities for many years. My language of choice for many of these is Python. However, I can successfully develop a utility in many scripting languages, including: PHP, Ruby, Perl, etc. I have written screen scrapers for over 500 websites, including Google Search and Craigslist. I have a very high working knowledge of HTML, which helps me quickly write any screen scraper you find yourself needing.

    Argentina - Last active: 09/21/2014 - Tests: 19

    Over the past 20 years I have been involved in several large projects including both software and hardware elements. I am looking to bring my expertise to businesses that have complex needs but don't have the volume to justify the expense of in-house talent. My skills include: - Project and team management: I have led web development projects from 3 to 30 people, using RUP, Scrum and homegrown methodologies. I know how to earn trust and gain the respect of collaborators, management, peers and clients. - Rails - I love the platform and have been working almost exclusively in RoR projects in the past 4 years for several different clients. - I prefer to use Thin, nginx, haml, jQuery, Semantic UI, Webistrano, MySQL or SQL Server, RVM and Rails 4.0 for new RoR projects. - I have experience consuming services like Twilio, SendGrid, UrbanAirship, and interfacing with payment gateways (usually Stripe and PayPal). - TCP/IP networking in general and the most popular protocols: HTTP/HTTPS, SMTP, POP3, SNMP, SSH. I also have a lot of experience troubleshooting connectivity and performance problems. I enjoy working with peers, but I can also work alone as developer and server administrator in small projects.

    United States - Last active: 07/29/2014 - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 20

    I started programming computers when I was eight years old, and, over the last 30 years, I've realized that I am, well, a programmer. That said, I do have the "people skills" necessary to remain competitive in the world of programming. When needed, I'm a "sit in the corner and program til the wee hours of the morning geek"... otherwise, I'm just a "fun to talk to, easy to get along with normal person". I have always enjoyed the challenge of creating interactive software. With the birth of the modern Internet, I found a new love in web development and web programming. I face every new piece of code as a fresh new beginning... a chance to do it even better, while, still using "what works" from the past. My objective, here at oDesk, it to provide potential employers with my expertise in the field of website design, development, and programming. My skill include, in no particular order: PHP MySQL HTML/HTML5 CSS/CSS3 JavaScript jQuery AJAX Big Data Laravel WordPress Magento CodeIgniter Zend Python PhpDocumenter (PHPDOC) XMPP, OpenFire Google Places API Angular.js Revive Adserver OpenX Adserver OpenX REST API Revive XMLRPC API BitBucket Web Scraping C# ASP.NET Classic ASP MSSQL Twitter API Facebook API Google API Google Maps API Google AdSense API Backbone.js Smarty MS Access Linux Apache nginx PHP Data Objects (PHP: PDO) MailChimp, MailChimp API Google GeoCode API MongoDB LAMP LEMP Ember.js IIS Photoshop Flash ActionScript Intuit Quickbooks API Mint API Twitter Bootstrap cPanel Plesk Authorize.net Stripe PayPal Google Checkout BASIC RackSpace API (OpenStack, OpenCloud, etc.) SalesForce / SalesForce API TinyMCE Yoast SEO MailGun / MailGun API JIRA Confluence
