Petr B.

Senior Developer, Consultant

Russia - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

I have strong background in UNIX/Linux software development, Master's Degree in Computer Science. I worked on Enterprise high-load distributed hosting automation systems as a Team Leader (3.5 years in SWsoft, Inc., now called Parallels). For the last 6 years I'm running my own small software development business in Russia with primary focus on Python/Django apps. Not pure Web but often involving integration with hardware (Proximity Cards, Sensor Screens) or external systems like Payment Processing, SMS Gateways, GABRIEL (Airline Reservation System), etc. I can take an idea and turn it into a working business, through all the intermediate stages. Also I have experience of investing my own funds in my projects, so I feel the difference between "perfect code" in a month and "good enough" code that increases the revenue right now. Nevertheless, my code is very good: no copy-paste, always written with performance, flexibility and security in mind, etc. On oDesk I'm looking for (and actually find :) interesting projects with a sight on long-term fruitful cooperation. I'm also open to smaller activities (e.g., consulting) where my knowledge can be helpful.

An experienced pythoneer and web developer

Thailand - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

I'm a Russian expat currently staying in Thailand. Before I decided to move abroad and work as a freelancer, I used to be a programmer and CTO, so I have deep knowledge of both business needs and appropriate technical solutions. I also have a great understanding of low-level computer principles and codes; I have been writing some C++ and x86 assembler codes for a few years. I've been coding since I was 14. As a student, I took part in an IT competition and won 3rd place in my city. Most of these competitions strongly relies on algorithms and mathematics, so I do have knowledge of programming patterns and algorithms as well. I switched to Python as my main programming language more than 5 years ago. I found it simple, clean, reliable and powerful. Soon after that, I noticed Django and started using it when it was an early pre-release version. Whether you need a complex, corporate-level solution such as a social network, or just a small script performing a simple task - I will do it quick and efficient. How a good IT solution should look like? It must be: - reliable: I always test my code; - solid: I think through all the important details and features before typing any symbol of code; - complete: my solutions will satisfy your business needs for 100% and even more; - high-quality: forget about stupid or unclear code - I follow all the theoretical and practical principles of writing code (including standards such as PEP8). The list of technologies and programs I worked with: ★ Python, Django, Flask, many external Python libraries ★ CSS, HTML, Java Script (including libraries such as jQuery) ★ MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, SQLite ★ Lighttpd, Nginx, Apache, Cherokee, Tornado ★ High-load optimization (including creating the appropriate project architecture, database design, code refactoring, choosing right tools etc.) ★ Selenium ★ Git, Mercurial;,, ★ Many data formats and files, such as binary, graphic, audio, plain-text, CSV, XML, OpenOffice and MS Word formats ★ Mac OS, Linux (including console and server administration), Windows, iOS, Android ★ PyCharm, Sublime Text, Text Mate, nano, vim; intermediate Photoshop skills

web development / net presence

Australia - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

After graduating in computing, I spent a year developing interfaces and APIs for financial transaction devices in Windows before moving into an area that had more appeal for me : system level communications and messaging, largely focused on a C++ / Unix / Oracle platform. I spent six years mostly juggling messages and communication channels between databases and queues. But I got tired of living in big cities, and hatched an escape plan. I started doing short term contracts for web projects using a range of scripting languages at the server, and AJAX in the browserI began with various short term contracts for web interface development using content management systems and frameworks including Drupal, Django and Node, programming in languages including PHP, Python and Javascript/Coffeescript. I've moved on to building web apps with rich client side frameworks, often with a full javascript stack including mongodb.
