Maria Murmantseva Agency Contractor

Web UI developer/PHP developer

Russia - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

I develop frontend and backend both for web-applications. As front-end developer (XHTML/CSS/JavaScript) I worked with different CMS (Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress) and frameworks (of PHP and Java). More experienced in data-oriented sites where challenge mostly is in output of lots of different content in a single style then in coding uniquely designed pages. I prefer not using fixed sizes and fonts and leaving place for graceful degradation for non-JS case. My position is that good site remains good not only for requested browsers, but also without styles, at mobile devices and in text mode. As backend developer I work with PHP/MySQL and prefer CakePHP framework. I mostly oriented to complex sites. The greatest achievement of mine social is web site with unique features like intelligent system of recommendations which needs a lot of data processing.
