    Ukraine - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 8

    Hi, my name is Kyrylo, and I'm oDesk Verified Mobile Applications Developer. I mainly focus on iOS development with Rubymotion, but also can work with Objective-C and Swift. Since almost every mobile project needs a server to store data or authenticate users, I also have a lot of web-development experience, including back-end development (Node.js, Ruby on Rails) and front-end development (Angular.js, Ember.js). Lately I was working on a wide range of projects, from social apps to business apps with huge databases, and from small utility apps, to games. I was working on applications like PackPoint or TradeGecko that were mentioned by TechCrunch, Lifehacker, TheNextWeb, 9to5Mac, Washington Post, L.A. Times and others. Some other apps were featured in App Store, others have 60k+ monthly users.

    Back-end and front-end dev and photographer

    Ukraine - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    I specialize on Ruby on Rails and front-end development. In spite of the fact I have got a degree in International Journalism and Translation, I worked as QA and IT Sales for total of 3 years (from 2008) and then moved to web development from Jan, 2012. I have performed both back-end tasks (from basic CRUD to making simple APIs or server scripts) and front-end (building static websites from scratch or developing views with twitter-bootstrap). I believe the experience is formed with the quality of the projects, you have delivered, and not with the years of sitting in front of the laptop. Specialties: ruby 1.9.2+, Ruby on Rails 3.0+, linux and MacOS X environment, unix-shell, Git, SQL (SQLite, MySQL, PostrgeSQL), HTML, Haml, CSS, Sass, Less, twitter-bootstrap, javascript, jQuery Here is link to my github profile: https://github.com/amseledka I do photographs and various design tasks in my spare time, as well as help my friends with Russian-Ukrainian-English translations.

    Planing, Design and Development of iOS Apps

    Japan - Last active: 23 hours ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 8

    My name is Tonriké, or Toto for short. I'm independent freelance iOS developer and designer based in beautiful city of Kanazawa in Japan. I help companies and entrepreneurs to plan, design and develop iOS applications, usually — from scratch. This covers everything from information in-take, analysis and architecture to application prototypes, user-interface design and software development. I also offer those services separately; however, I will not do UI design without comprehensive UX consulting. Technically, my skill-set covers anything from iOS Foundation frameworks to advanced topics like image processing and digital signal analysis. I already develop and help community to research Swift Language and latest Apple technologies. My experience as iOS developer starts right after iPhone SDK was debuted in 2008. Fascinated by product design and information architecture, I also started to design user interfaces and planing software products in 2009. In 2013 I was offered to teach "User Interfaces for Programmers" in Caucasus University in my hometown, Tbilisi, Georgia. That's what I did and as result, ended up creating whole syllabus which is still in use by university. I'm also fluent with many other technologies around those languages: Ruby, JavaScript, Go-lang. I charge what I charge because I'm one of the best in business, and results I provide are not disposable. "Fire and forget" is not my style of working and many returning clients are prove to that. I do not accept "I need Instagram clone for $1000" jobs, those are for scammers and "developers" desperate to ruin their reputation for little money. In short: If you want high quality, fully-working, maintainable and well-planned product with pre-development consulting and proper design, than contact me.

    Dan Midwood

    FP Developer / Mentor

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2

    I'm an expert in Clojure and Scala functional programming, and scalable systems. My greater background is in Java development and I have sufficient knowledge of Javascript and web front end programming to be productive. I'm well versed in all stages of application development, from the early planning and pre-planning days on to post release. I'm a big fan of agile and the devops movement, and I love to work in great cross-discipline teams. I've been remote contracting for over a year now, I'm a great communicator and familiar with a wide range of remote collaboration tools. Before this I was an employee at Mind Candy, an entertainment startup based in London, where I was working on Scala and Java development, at first on the Moshi Monsters game and then later leading back end development on the Moshling Rescue mobile and Facebook game. Both titles required efficient, well designed code able to scale to many concurrent users and easily handle times of peak load. Throughout my time at Mind Candy I also acted as a mentor to other members of staff that were coming newly to Scala from a Java background, helping to ease their transition and become fully adept at writing idiomatic functional Scala code. As well as development I've been involved heavily in "developer multiplier" tasks, through such things as adding continuous integration servers, building a deployment pipeline, adding code metrics and other, more manual, things such as code reviews. I'm a big fan of sharing information, presenting what I'm working on and interested in and hearing about the same from others. I can help you with development, system design, choosing a database (SQL and NoSQL) and designing data types, scaling systems, migrating from Java to Clojure or Scala, improving your tooling and build chain, and more. I'm available for long term engagement, or for shorter projects.
