    Web Developer

    Germany - Last active: 20 hours ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

    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.

    Experience and Skill: I do writing and marketing.

    United States - Last active: 04/15/2013 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 6

    I've carved a niche for myself in writing for clients that need someone who can not only write well for your company but also not be a pain to deal with. That is a winning combination, I've found. Rather than a text-producing robot churning out bland work, I offer you a person on the other end of the line who can disagree respectfully if he thinks things are going in the wrong direction and offer alternative solutions. I'll do my best to make sure that the money you've payed to me will make you more money.

    Web Programmer

    United States - Last active: 01/17/2013 - Tests: 3

    During the last two years, I have developed extensively using the Ruby on Rails framework, including internships at Due Props, with Rails 3 Way author Obie Fernandez, and Penguin Digital, recently acquired by Shutterfly. I am now a technical co-founder at VentureBoard, where I specialize in Rails development and enforcing good application and code structure. If you're looking for a contractor familiar with writing Ruby on Rails code that is not just effective, but maintainable, and who has had a wide variety of experiences familiarizing him with existing solutions to problems you likely have, then I'm a good candidate for you.

    Experienced systems developer

    Greece - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    I am a Masters in Computer Science, graduated from the University of Crete. My master's thesis topic is about parameterisable automated GUI generation from data structures using a dynamic language. My interests involve computational complexity, algorithms and algorithmic solutions which use high-level recomposition or problem reduction, graphic algorithms, low-level 3D processing, cryptography, theoretical development tools, theoretical studying and analysis of languages, as well as languages themselves, among many, many others. I have worked with all traditional and mainstream "system" languages (c, c++, java, c#), as well as "scripting" (ruby, Delta, javascript), and (even) functional languages (haskel, scala). I also have worked in many different fields of applications, ranging from a toy postscript resterizer, a couple of CPU simulators, byte-code compilers and virtual machines, interpreters, project-description translators (and therefor toy build-systems), tons of linux junior (and juvenile) administration and scripting, web-development (mainly in PHP and ruby), 2d games, 3d graphics (such as surface generation, texture mapping, lighting), peer-to-peer experimentation (a "p3p" chat client), cryptography, and probably even more that I cannot recall any more. I enjoy learning and using solely the latest (bleeding edge) technologies and methodologies. I particularly enjoy a lot researching common wisdom about specific topics, I enjoy splitting problems into topics about which there is wisdom to be found, and finally wishing to create new wisdom through problems that truly hit new frontiers. My ideal projects involve bits and pieces of such technological and scientific challenges, and are (ideally) about something "cool and interesting". I enjoy a lot talking out and figuring out common ground and specific arrangements which make everyone happy. Apart from computers, I am also a dancer, a mover, a thinker, a musician, a healer and a researcher. Feel free to contact me if you have specific questions, if you feel you need to validate any of my claims, you have an objection about what I ask in exchange for work, or simply to have a chat and get to know me.
