    Web Developer

    Germany - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 4

    Hey there! I'm a freelance web developer based in Germany. Over the last several years I've been building websites using PHP, Ruby, Rails, jQuery, Javascript, Bootstrap, CSS3, HTML5 and more. I have experience in working with such PHP frameworks as CodeIgniter and Laravel. I also enjoy scripting and automating tasks with the help of Ruby or Python. So I would be more than glad to help you scrape a few thousand web pages in order to get the data you're looking for. I'm currently a student at a German university, so I have to deal with both German and English on a day-to-day basis. Moreover I'm a native Russian speaker. So feel free to contact me in case you are looking for a really human translation of anything involving any of these three languages.
