    Mexico - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 18 - Portfolio: 2

    I have lots of experience building and enhancing WordPress plugins and building themes from scratch.

I worked for a Fortune 500 automotive company in a reporting and analysis position, and also building and maintaining a website in the company's intranet using Perl and MySQL. After that I was in charge of supporting a website built with Java and the Spring framework, using both MySQL and Oracle databases, for customers worldwide. I also worked at the tech support helpdesk for that same company for over a year, troubleshooting Linux servers and workstations, networking and other data related issues. I was also in charge of administering KBOX ticketing system for over a year, from content management to database administration, to scripting solutions for its customers. I also have knowledge in scripting using different technologies, such as VBScript, Javascript, Linux shell scripting, Perl, and some Powershell, as well as VBA for Excel and HTAs. I was also regularly troubleshooting C and Java programs for bugs and/or enhancements. After that, I moved to a company named Softtek as a Software Engineer, I was part of a team that develops Wordpress plugins and themes for an American multinational conglomerate corporation. The last position I held was for yet another company as a Linux intermediate administrator, where I was in charge of managing users with Centrify and I also installed Cacti to monitor some of the company's servers running CentOS. Currently, I work on my own mostly developing Wordpress plugins and themes. I have specialized myself working on web development, mainly PHP with MySQL databases, but also Javascript/jQuery for the front end.

    Flash, Flex, Actionscript, Education/Teaching, Mobile (Android/IOS)

    United Kingdom - Last active: 15 hours ago - Tests: 10

    I first started programming with Perl-CGI, C, HTML, CSS and Javascript in a Linux environment. I have worked on a wide range of projects, and in recent years I have developed additional skills in Flash and Flex. I regularly create Android and IOS applications in addition to online and desktop applications. I have experience of game design, and I am confident that I could contribute to the creative design process. You can see my own demonstration games at www.orientalfudge.co.uk. I have also worked on a series of multi-player games for a client using the XIFF/Jabber chat server. I can program Actionscript 3 both as a script and as OOP. I find Flash CS6 particularly advantageous for fast prototyping. I can also program in Adobe Flex using Flash Builder 4.6. In 2008-2009 I decided to embark on a teacher training course. I value the flexibility offered by this profession and at the time of writing I am involved in creating video lessons for programming in Actionscript. I would welcome the opportunity to get involved in online/virtual teaching in addition to software development opportunities. --- Information about using Adobe AIR to create Android and IOS apps: 1. Myth: Apple doesn't allow Adobe AIR on its platform. Reality: Adobe AIR has been used for development of mobile applications for Android and IOS for several years. 2. Myth: Apps created in Adobe AIR require additional software to be downloaded to make them work. Reality: This used to be the case, but apps created in Adobe AIR are now self-contained and do not require additional software to run. 3. Myth: Adobe AIR is inferior to apps programmed in Java for Android or C in IOS. Reality: Apps created in Adobe AIR can be programmed to be indistinguishable from native apps, including compatibility with the latest retina displays. They can be built to have responsive layouts and intuitive user interfaces. 4. The advantages of using Adobe AIR to build apps: (a) You save on development time because only one set of code needs to be produced. (b) If you need updates later on, only one set of code needs to be updated. (c) If you already have Flash files for the Internet, it is easy to adapt them to use on mobile phones. (d) Your app will look the same on both Android and IOS by default. 5. Issues to be aware of when commissioning mobile apps built in Adobe AIR: (a) They won't install on older ARM6 phones (for Android) or the iPhone 3. (b) Some phone functions cannot be accessed directly by Adobe AIR and require 'native extensions' (programs that can be accessed by the app which have been written in code native to that platform). (c) The Adobe AIR interpreter is built out of native code, so the performance of an AIR app is lower by definition. Techniques to optimise app performance mean that you may not notice the difference, especially if your app is not hungry for processing power. (d) They do not make use of any in-built user-interface elements provided by the Android or IOS platforms. (e) AIR apps sometimes need updating when a new mobile operating system is released to be compatible with the new operating system (this is also true of native apps, but to a lesser extent in my experience). If you want your apps for 'in house' purposes (i.e. not for general release), then this issue is less likely to affect you. Please contact me if you want to know more or if you are unsure about whether or not Adobe AIR would be suitable for building your app. If you want your app to look and behave in exactly the same way on Android and IOS, then Adobe AIR may be your ideal solution with the added advantage of requiring only one set of code to be written instead of two.

    Expert software designer and programmer (Python, Perl, Unix)

    Argentina - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 5

    I am a software designer and programmer and Unix admin. I've been programming for 20 years. More than 10 years of working remotely and I think I'm a very good team player. What motivates me most is to learn something new. My main strengths are my academic background (I studied computer science at the UBA university in Argentina) and that I'm a proactive, independent worker. Whenever I can, I find the answers by myself. Currently I'm interested in non UI, back end jobs. I developed websites (not web design) but that's not what I'm looking for right now. Very good knowledge of: Languages: Python, Perl, C, Unix tools. VCS: Git, svn. DB: Postgresql, Mysql. Non rel DBs: Redis. Web frameworks: Django, Catalyst. Bug tracking systems: Jira, Mantis, Bugzilla. I always worked on Unix and all its flavors, so I got a lot of experience on its usage, networking, administration, operating system internals, etc. Different jobs and curiosity by itself made me learn lots of different languages, APIs, frameworks, like Ruby, PHP, Javascript (esp. JQuery), Twitter and FB APIs, Amazon S3, etc.

    Senior Dev: Perl/Catalyst/Moose/DBIC/NoSQL+AJAX/jQuery, shell+sysadmin

    Ukraine - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 19

    Seeking opportunities in Perl oriented (Catalyst DBIC preferred) application development, shell and perl scripting, and BSD/Linux administration projects - to build sites and setup servers for your business or pleasure.In my mind, LAMP more often reads as LASP - Linux, Apache, (any|no)SQL, Perl - of course, with Catalyst, Template Toolkit and DBIx::Class/KiokuDB in pair with some RCS (git is preferred, but subversion, mercurial and others also possible). And of course, all can be integrated with AJAX libraries such as jQuery, Prototype, MooTools and other to create Web2.0 apptications.Great knowledge of regular expressions (regexp). Have real experience with MySql, Postgres, Oracle, CouchDB, LDAP, also worked with CPanel, Plesk and Ensim. And of course, have experience with Apache, SMTP (exim, postfix, sendmail), IMAP/POP (Cyrus, UW, Dovecot), firewalls (bsd/ipfw and linux/iptables), Samba and misc ftp and proxy solutions.I can work well as alone and as a team member.
