    Scripting and Web Frameworks Developer

    United States - Last active: 08/15/2014 - Tests: 3

    Over the last 6 years, I have been working in Python, Ruby, and Javascript (client- and server- side) across a variety of web frameworks, such as Django, Rails, Sinatra, and Express, including many of the various tools and libraries in the space. Templating engines, code generation and scaffolding, and multiple back-end databases, comprised of both SQL and No-SQL, are not unfamiliar to my work; I take design and security seriously. This all plays a key role in the honing of my skills. With that, I like to believe that I develop to create something that is solid and maintainable. The last 12 years have seen some time developing bots, spiders, crawlers, and scrapers, and I am very familiar with the complications that go into the development and maintenance of such systems. I find joy in making tools that work without much needed upkeep. I have in-depth knowledge of Linux, and it has been my platform of choice for the last 15 years, and I am no stranger to Bash, Makefiles, C, C++, or perl. With that, cloud computing, deployment, and service health seem to come naturally to me. I'm also a hobbyist, dabbling in AI, embedded hardware development, and robotics, and it's not uncommon for me to attempt to train up a system that takes on "smart" characteristics.
