    70% of all software projects fail. Why is that happening? A few reasons: - Poor communication - Poor communication - Poor communication - Badly defined requirements - Wrong project's priorities - Sloppy development practices How do I address these issues: *Communication & Requirements clarification* - Monday to Friday daily status meetings at fixed time, suitable for all team members(customer is a team member). - Weekly iteration planning meetings. - Transparent and easy-to-use Project Management tools. *Project prioritization* - Complexity estimation - Short iterations & short feedback loop *Development practices* - Perfectly clean code - Test Driven Development (99% test coverage). - Obligatory code review & collective code ownership. - Domain Driven Design, Lean Architecture, GRASP, SOLID If this sounds good for you, let's get this done.

    Started as fullstack Ruby on Rails developer, in last 6 years I've developed my skills from backend all the way to architecting complex systems, which involve usage of cloud platforms, data pipelines, configuration management etc. etc. I've worked both with small scale startups and with big high load business and now how to pick and use best tools for the job.

    Ruby / iOS Developer

    Philippines - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 2

    Plain and simple, to get the job done! Fancy words and jargons may sound good but I prefer letting my skills do the telling, more so the talking. As an undergrad, I spent my years doing personal projects which most of the time are irrelevant to our curricula. But since I firmly believe experience is the best teacher, I 'do' rather than just think about it. Long story short, I dropped out of college to get things done. I primarily focus on Ruby(Rails) development but I also have experience with node.js. Technologies that I've used include Coffeescript, SASS/LESS, socket.io, express, and rails gems e.g. Devise, CanCan, Paperclip, etc.. As a freelancer, I had worked with various clients where I have showcased the skills that I have in every applicable way. For instances where I'm new to a task I'm assigned to do, I went out of my way to make sure I have sufficient knowledge before starting with the job. Previous experiences include SEO, Virtual Assistance, various Research, Wordpress Installation, Content Moderation, and Landing Page design.
