    Senior Developer, PM

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

    I have strong background in UNIX/Linux software development, Master's Degree in Computer Science. I worked on Enterprise high-load distributed hosting automation systems as a Team Leader (3.5 years in SWsoft, Inc., now called Parallels). For the last 6 years I'm running my own small software development business in Russia with primary focus on Python/Django apps. Not pure Web but often involving integration with hardware (Proximity Cards, Sensor Screens) or external systems like Payment Processing, SMS Gateways, GABRIEL (Airline Reservation System), etc. I can take an idea and turn it into a working business, through all the intermediate stages. Also I have experience of investing my own funds in my projects, so I feel the difference between "perfect code" in a month and "good enough" code that increases the revenue right now. Nevertheless, my code is very good: no copy-paste, always written with performance, flexibility and security in mind, etc. On oDesk I'm looking for (and actually find :) interesting projects with a sight on long-term fruitful cooperation. I'm also open to smaller activities (e.g., consulting) where my knowledge can be helpful.

    expert troubleshooter, generalist developer, tenacious problem solver

    United States - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    "Jack of all trades, master of none" is typically said in a derogatory fashion, but I adopt the title gladly, and you will not likely find more than a few dozen generalists worldwide who can match my troubleshooting and problem-solving skills. I've been programming, on and off, for 40 years, if you count my study of BASIC in 1968, 6 years before I actually got my hands on a computer: the DECSystem-10 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. As a result of working on computers and microcontrollers of various sizes and capabilities over the years, I have learned to get to the basics of a problem, come up with a prototype solution, and refine it to the customer's satisfaction. My methodology, which I found later is used by many successful programmers, is "build one to throw away"... once the code is working, rewrite it from scratch, correcting the false assumptions made in the first attempt, and refactoring to make a clean, maintainable, codebase. My background in both the electrical/electronics side of things plus years of experience reverse-engineering and improving software on dozens of different architectures gives me the rounded background necessary to take on projects which leave specialists lost. I may charge more than most ($100 is my usual rate, but I found it's unrealistic on Odesk), but when you've run up against a brick wall, I can likely find a way over, around, or through it.

    Over the last 10 years, I was working with *nix-like OSes. I started from FreeBSD and OpenBSD, and now I use mostly Gentoo Linux. I have developed a big bunch of parsers/small scripts, configured a lot of different software. I have experience with a few different programming languages, mostly Python and bash.
