    Ruby on Rails Developer

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 8

    I am a talented and experienced full-stack web application developer. I work almost exclusively in Ruby on Rails. I love developing applications “the Rails way”. I appreciate the brilliance of the Rails architecture and enjoy using it to build world-class applications. I’ve created a number of complex systems using Rails including e-commerce sites, inventory management systems, scheduling systems, forum applications, internal organizational systems, and order fulfillment systems. My rails knowledge is also augmented with intimate knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, Sass, SQL, and jQuery.

    Senior developer, Project Manager

    China - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 1

    Professional and hobbyist developer, with over 15 years of actual development under the belt and 8 years in 'hands-on' management positions (as engagement manager in a consulting firm and then as a CTO in a web startup). My technical experience ranges from desktop (C/C++/C#/Java/VB, scripting in Python/Ruby/VBA), embedded (PIC, ATMEGA, ARM), web (PHP, Ruby on Rails, JS/Coffeescript, HTML5 and some understanding of web design principles and UX construction) and ERP/Business Intelligence (SAP BW, QlickView). These days (2015), I am mostly doing web dev (front-end/back-end) in Ruby, Python and CoffeeScript - they allow very quick iterations and cutting through tons of boilerplate to get to a MVP as quickly as possible. My skills in C/C++ are a bit rusty, but I'll gladly dust them off for an interesting project :) I read Java and C# and don't mind using them as external dependencies, but I do not enjoy working with those. As for my management experience, I have been leading small and large engagements (up to 2 millions EUR) in offshore settings (India, China), both on-site and remotely I feel like I have a good understanding of the communication and management challenges involved in freelancing. As your contractor, I see myself adding value by challenging your requirements, helping you define clear specifications and, if the assignment is large enough to need more than myself as a developer, I can help you screen out other offshore resources and simplify your outsourcing experience.

    Expert Web Developer

    United States - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 3

    I am currently the lead developer for LyntonWeb, a inbound marketing and web design and development firm, and I am looking to expand my personal portfolio with some new projects to increase my reputation as well as make myself more valuable to my company. I am expert level PHP and Python developer, and I am skilled in front end development technologies such as SASS, SCSS, CSS, Javascript, Jquery and more. I work in the website development industry and I have obtained skills in communication, budget management and more during that time. PHP - experience and skills ===================== The core of my job at LyntonWeb revolves around PHP and more specifically WordPress. I am an expert level WordPress developer, capable of completely customizing the functionality of a WordPress website. I have built real estate websites, ecommerce websites, simple user based websites and more. I have done complete salesforce integrations with WordPress, as well as other APIs. I have expert level knowledge of the Gravity Forms plugin for WordPress including how to extend and customize it. I also am very familiar with WooCommerce and its customization. In addition to WordPress I also have Joomla programming experience, though my skills in WordPress far surpass Joomla. I am also skilled at using PHP to create custom scripts that either extend outside of WordPress or exist entirely on their own. I am familiar with the Laravel PHP platform for developing PHP applications and have had minor experience with it. At work and with my clients I have received many accolades for the work I have done on their websites. I have received many acknowledgements via internal feedback systems and have been gifted by my clients as a reward for on time delivery of excellent projects. Python ====== I am also an experienced developer with Python, with a specialty in building flask web applications. I would consider myself a database architect due to the skill with which I am able to build and organize data within Python models. The applications I build are applauded by the clients they serve. I am also in the process of building several of my own web sites/web applications all built on the Python Flask framework. If you're looking for a truly custom website, with functionality that is usually only found in web applications, then you need seek no further!
