    Expert Project Manager and Web Developer

    Bulgaria - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    I've worked as a Web developer (mostly in PHP 5/MySQL although I started in Perl and I've also done some Ruby on Rails) since 1999 (yes, there was a World Wide Web back then) but I've been a project manager in the past years. I'm looking for some extra work so I can keep my development skills in shape (and because I still love programming).
