    Expert iOS Consultant & Developer

    Russia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 4

    I'm a certified programmer and system architect with 7 years of experience under my belt. My job is to ease my client's life by making a polished and profitable iOS app. I can: • develop an effective, reliable and easy-to-support native iOS app from scratch; • fix, update, or complete your existing Objective-C / Swift / C++ code; • integrate various APIs and SDKs like Parse, Pushwoosh, RevMob, Xplode, Flurry, etc; • implement advanced web interaction models, like custom data synchronization. Having an advanced scientific background, I can work with physical, graphical and probabilistic models, both with engines and without them. So complex animations and simulations are not a problem! But the greatest feature you'll get is targeting your goals, not just a technical task. You don't have to speak developers' language. Just state your problem, and we'll find the balance between the turnaround time, the development cost, and the project value. Let's make your new app a success together!
