I delivered my first commercial project in 1999, a website for a local manufacturing company and since then have designed and delivered over 150 websites and design related projects. I am passionate about the work I do and still have that hunger for creating innovative design, born out of those years where design and creativity existed only in my imagination.

    Back-end and front-end dev and photographer

    Ukraine - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    I specialize on Ruby on Rails and front-end development. In spite of the fact I have got a degree in International Journalism and Translation, I worked as QA and IT Sales for total of 3 years (from 2008) and then moved to web development from Jan, 2012. I have performed both back-end tasks (from basic CRUD to making simple APIs or server scripts) and front-end (building static websites from scratch or developing views with twitter-bootstrap). I believe the experience is formed with the quality of the projects, you have delivered, and not with the years of sitting in front of the laptop. Specialties: ruby 1.9.2+, Ruby on Rails 3.0+, linux and MacOS X environment, unix-shell, Git, SQL (SQLite, MySQL, PostrgeSQL), HTML, Haml, CSS, Sass, Less, twitter-bootstrap, javascript, jQuery Here is link to my github profile: https://github.com/amseledka I do photographs and various design tasks in my spare time, as well as help my friends with Russian-Ukrainian-English translations.

    Dan Midwood

    FP Developer / Mentor

    United Kingdom - Last active: 28 days ago - Tests: 2

    I'm an expert in Clojure and Scala functional programming, and scalable systems. My greater background is in Java development and I have sufficient knowledge of Javascript and web front end programming to be productive. I'm well versed in all stages of application development, from the early planning and pre-planning days on to post release. I'm a big fan of agile and the devops movement, and I love to work in great cross-discipline teams. I've been remote contracting for over a year now, I'm a great communicator and familiar with a wide range of remote collaboration tools. Before this I was an employee at Mind Candy, an entertainment startup based in London, where I was working on Scala and Java development, at first on the Moshi Monsters game and then later leading back end development on the Moshling Rescue mobile and Facebook game. Both titles required efficient, well designed code able to scale to many concurrent users and easily handle times of peak load. Throughout my time at Mind Candy I also acted as a mentor to other members of staff that were coming newly to Scala from a Java background, helping to ease their transition and become fully adept at writing idiomatic functional Scala code. As well as development I've been involved heavily in "developer multiplier" tasks, through such things as adding continuous integration servers, building a deployment pipeline, adding code metrics and other, more manual, things such as code reviews. I'm a big fan of sharing information, presenting what I'm working on and interested in and hearing about the same from others. I can help you with development, system design, choosing a database (SQL and NoSQL) and designing data types, scaling systems, migrating from Java to Clojure or Scala, improving your tooling and build chain, and more. I'm available for long term engagement, or for shorter projects.

    Rails Dev With Diverse Skill Set

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 5

    Hey, what's up? Thank you for reviewing my profile, I'm glad you stopped by! My name is Dave and here's the skill set I can bring to your project or team: Ruby on Rails Development - Experience with Heroku, Postgres, Devise, Pundit, Paperclip, Geocoder, etc. Front End Development - Bootstrap, Sass, Less, and a little bit of AngularJS Graphic Development and Retouching - 11+ years of Photoshop experience with an extensive focus on photo retouching, complex compositing, and stylized post production. Other Cool Stuff - Audio engineering, video editing / post production, marketing, and I'm a damn fine party planner! But wait, there's more! I also speak fluent English, am on EST time, and according to the Dali Llama, on my death bed I'll achieve total consciousness, so I got that going for me. On a serious note, I am looking primarily for ongoing rails positions that will challenge me and expand my knowledge. I also know that being able to fill some gaps when needed can be a huge benefit. I am happy to jump in and be of help in a range of areas outside of web development if needed, such as marketing and content creation. Finally, and as I would expect from anyone in web development in this day and age, I am very familiar with Wordpress and able to assist with just about anything a project could require. I would love to chat with you more about your thing / project / hopes and dreams / and the like... So please hit me up with a message and let's do lunch. Thanks again and talk soon!
