    20+ years expert SQL database designer preferring MySQL and PHP.

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 41

    I am one of the top database design specialists on oDesk. My sophisticated hand-crafted database design will save your organization significant time and money. I am a serious professional with over 20 years of experience as a programmer and database specialist. My emphasis has been on creating elegant SQL database design integrated with user-friendly front-end software (desktop and web applications). I have worked mainly as a database designer, programmer and database administrator for bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and biomedical research applications. I also have extensive experience programming database-centric software (websites, web applications, desktop applications) for publishing, business, financial, personnel and other purposes. One of the things I enjoy most is creating database schemas which make sense for both programmers and non-programmers, designing with an eye toward flawless data integrity, maximum maintainability and optimal performance. I love crafting websites and web applications which perform with shocking speed. It makes for a better experience for users, developers and administrators. My expertly designed database systems - with well-written queries, intelligently chosen indices, and sensible caching strategies - can easily perform 10 to 100 times faster (using the same underlying hardware). My emphasis when working with clients is on their data and system usability, not specific trends or technologies. But in case you're wondering about some specifics, I strongly believe that the database data should be integrated with but also somewhat independent from a presentation/application layer. Data in the database should be easily accessible from one or many different applications built using one or multiple different technologies. Currently I favor PHP/JavaScript/HTML5 for web applications, RealBasic/Real Studio/Xojo for cross-platform applications [Mac OS X/Windows/Linux], Xcode for Mac OS X-only/iOS applications, Visual Studio for Windows desktop applications. I prefer using MySQL for back-end RDBMS, but I also use Oracle, Microsoft MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL and SQLite on a regular basis. If your data and information organization is already in great shape, and if you are satisfied with how your database-integrated software and website performs, then you probably don't need a high-end expert like me. I can make routine modifications, add to well-crafted existing systems, etc. But so can many other people. But if you're just getting started on a new system that you want done right, or if you suspect your database website programming strategy needs an overhaul, then I can get you on the right track in a short amount of time. * * * * * * * * Let me mention a few of the client-friendly policies and practices I apply with all my clients. I don't do these things to distinguish myself from other contractors. (I would hope they all do the same.) I do these simply because this is how I would want to be treated if I was the client: - I work for zero up-front payment; you can pay me when I'm done. - With fixed-rate contracts, if you don't love what I do for you, you don't need to pay for it. - You don't need to have your own web servers; I can host development and/or live production work on my own high-capacity servers. - I don't mind working on a client's servers, or doing dev work on my servers and transfering finished work to client's servers. - I do not charge clients for hosting their websites or software systems, or for moving their websites or software systems elsewhere. - I provide clients with root log-in access to all the work I do for them; you are welcome to log into the server (cPanel, FTP, and phpMyAdmin) at any time and copy or back-up or move any work I do for you. - If I am working for you, all work product, all source code, all database design belongs to you. Always. Period. - I am happy to work with you and/or other programmers you enlist to work on a project; I am happy to pass off development work. - I do not provide mysterious "black box" solutions. I am happy to have you look under the hood at everything I do. You don't need to know anything at all about the inner workings of a system. Or you're welcome to ask about the most intricate details. - If we're developing a system from scratch, I prefer to do so using very widely-available technologies (PHP/MySQL/JavaScript/HTML5) which you can hire countless other people to work on if you decide to have other developers work on your system. - Do not be embarrassed to ask ANY question! I enjoy working with clients who have zero technical know-how in programming/databases/etc., partially because I appreciate their expertise in OTHER fields (real estate, art, medicine, law, science, civics, etc.) If you already know everything about databases and programming you probably wouldn't need me, would you?

    Since 1998 I have developed dozens of web applications focusing on a wide-range of industries including custom search engines, affiliate marketing, real estate solutions and worker safety. As an autodidact, I pride myself on learning new technologies and continually improving my skill-set. As a freelancer, I believe in professionalism, clean code and representing my craft to the highest degree possible.

For the database layer, I have 14 years of experience with MySQL. On the client-side, I prefer jQuery, Backbone and Twitter Bootstrap. Although I am not a graphic designer, I know my way around the Adobe software suite. I write standard compliant HTML5 and CSS3. I have an eye for useable, clean and obvious functionality. I have experience with many APIs, including Amazon, Box.net, Infusionsoft, Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, eWay, Authorize.net and Google. I can write APIs from scratch and give your application a RESTful interface.

    Web Copywriter and Content Strategist

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 18

    ***About Me***_______________________________________________________________ I specialize in one thing and one thing only: writing personality-packed, research-based copy that gets you results online. Currently, I work full-time at Rocket Media, a web design + internet marketing agency (http://rocketmedia.com/). Over the past few years, I've written online content for dozens of our clients in a punctual, professional manner. For what it's worth: I have a B.A in Communications and an M.B.A focused in marketing. So, yeah, I work hard. ***What I can wordsmith for you***_______________________________________________ *Website content (home page, about us page, product pages, etc) *Landing pages *Email newsletters *Blog Articles *Ebooks *Case studies *Social media contest copy *PPC and Social Ads *Transactional emails *Email automation workflows Note: If you need me to work with a team, I have experience working with web designers and developers to write copy for responsive website redesigns. ***How we'll work wonderfully together***______________________________________________ Any writer can say they're professional, so let me show you that I am by explaining the best way we can work together. (Note: Obviously this process can change depending on the work—especially for smaller projects—but it's a good starting point). *Step 1: One FREE 1-hour call* Before you commit to hiring me, we can talk in more detail about your project, including: *What your big goals are (web copy is merely the means to a larger end) *What your current problems are *What results do you want to get out of my services (dolla dolla bill, y'all!) *More about you and your target audience Hit me up on Skype to chat about these details. After the call, I'll detail a scope of work, time needed to complete the work and pricing. If we jive, then it's on to... *Step 2: Deep dive research* Feeling comfy enough to hire me? Good. All good copy is research-based copy. So at this point I'll uncover more about: *Who you—or your brand— are so that I can write in your tone of voice *Your products and services, so I can uncover their features and benefits *The specifics of your target audience, using the right tools and online research methods (how deep I go here depends on how well you know your audience and your budget) *Step 3: Create a strategy and/or needed deliverables* Once I've gather enough information, I'll create a plan of attack and/or review deliverables with you. These can include: *Target audience personas *Voice and tone guides *Email workflow overview *Editorial calendars (for articles and newsletters) This will get you and I on the same page before I write a word. *Step 4: I write; you review* Self explanatory. You'll receive a copy deck to review, and we'll hash it out cage-match style. *Step 5: Measure and adjust* If we're working together on an on-going project and I have access to analytics of any sort, I'll use what I learn from that to alter the copy or adjust how I writer for the next assignment. Step 6: You and I party and leave each other 5-star reviews. Because, in the end, we should enjoy life. :) Sound good? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Croatia - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 18

    I started playing with web development almost 20 years ago at a very young age. Made my first buck well before I could drive so naturally I fell in love with what was than simply called - web design.

Flash programming 1998. CSS2 table-less coding 1999. SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) 2000. AJAX & Javascript Web applications 2001. Dynamic SVG applications 2002. A brief switch to graphic design 2004. CMS management & development 2006. Webshop development 2008. HTML5 & CSS3 coding 2009. CSS3 & jQuery animation 2010. Search Engine Marketing 2011. Copyrighting & Project Management 2012. Complex responsive applications 2013. CSS3 Filters & Content Management 2014. Currently playing with HTML5 Web Video & Audio So this is what I've learned so far and I'm still trying to keep up with what ever this great industry brings to the table. If you have a cutting edge project feel free to ask for advice. If I don't feel confident I can do it myself I'll be glad to point you in the right direction. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy 'cause it's gonna be great.
