Web Senior Developer with new technologies

Argentina - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 2

I'm an ambitious JavaScript developer with a strong technical background who possesses self-discipline, the ability to work with the minimum of supervision and to play a key role throughout the software development. As JavaScript Senior Developer my experience consist in five years working with different technologies and methodologies in the JS ecosystem. In my first years i worked with AngularJS and jQuery to create single-page applications using always a PHP backend. But with the pass of the years I realized that create great and powerfull applications don't need to have a big framework inside (e.g AngularJS). So in my last years i had the oportunity to work in proyects directed by me and where i could work with minimalistic libraries and with a strong philosophy based on modular/components web applications. So in the present i'm working with beautifull and powerfull technologies such as: - VanillaJS - MithrilJS - Browserify with Babel - PostCSS - Gulp - VelocityJS - Meteor - Node.js and io.js - HapiJS - MongoDB - Cordova - Crosswalk Project My objective is create applications where the client/user has the best experience. Where the client UI and the server side has a similar and shared environment to work, a unix like philosophy based on modular/components applications. My weaknesses as you maybe know at this moment is my poor english, but i'm trying to improve that part of my education.

Perry Butler

Professional Freelance Software Contractor/Consultant

United States - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 16

Professional IT Manager and Programmer with over 12 years of experience in the industry leading two company's IT departments, with an expertise in web software development and design. Highly skilled conceptual programmer and software architect/engineer. I've produced many solutions from start to finish while being the sole programmer and project manager, including highly concurrent (multi-user) database systems that are in use today. My objective here on oDesk is to provide professional quality web programming and web design as an independent (freelance) contractor. As such, I deal with several clients/projects/employers throughout my average month and I enjoy this flexibility. I strive to produce results that are truly remarkable, some of which have never been seen before. This is an important driving force behind my work because you know you aren't getting a run-of-the mill design or a cookie-cutter solution when you hire me (unless that's what you want!). I'm not set in my ways and I don't adhere to one design pattern; every project is different and must be approached with a certain level of ingenuity. I prefer to build things from the ground up when unrestricted control over the design/layout/functionality is required. I am an expert when it comes to Wordpress development. I've designed many custom Wordpress themes from scratch including one fully AJAX theme (NO page loads), and two themes to power specific web apps. I've also built several custom Wordpress plugins from scratch and I have worked with other content management systems (CMS) such as Magento, Joomla, Drupal, MediaWiki and Dolphin; being familiar with several common platforms sheds more insight on the proper path/solution for the job. Proficiency with web languages and techniques: PHP, AJAX, HTML5, CSS, jQuery, ASP.NET, JavaScript, MySQL, etc. Proficiency with standard tools: Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash, etc. Proficiency with design principles: Responsive UI/UX, OOP, SEO, etc. Notepad++ and FileZilla are my tools.
