    Microsoft Access / SQL Server Developer

    United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 1

    I first began developing an Access database for a small company in Florida. I became a permanent, part-time employee in 1998. As the database project grew we expanded the back end to a SQL Server database. Over the years I've studied both Access VBA and T-SQL and have become very good at designing network based applications based on this popular combination of Microsoft products.

    Senior Software Engineer & Architect Specializing in .NET Technologies

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 4

    For 15+ years I have been developing software from all angles - back-end through front-end. I have worked with numerous languages, frameworks and tools but find myself happiest when working with the .NET Framework/C# - I have worked with the .NET Framework since it was first released. Over the past decade-and-a-half, I have proven myself a valuable asset to any team/project on which I have been placed. I have very strong development skills including .NET (C#), database design, UI/UX, front-end (HTML5, CSS3, JS), back-end (SQL Server, MySQL), web services/APIs, etc. I always end up being the go-to guy for other team members when they have questions and I'm happy to mentor more junior developers. I've worked on projects of all sizes ranging from small internal systems to large public-facing systems. I am constantly keeping up with the latest trends in software development and in my free time I usually have one or two personal projects going on. I tend to prefer working with C# but have also worked with Java/J2EE, Ruby on Rails, PHP, etc. I am open to other languages, technologies and frameworks - whichever is best for the job. I have strong front-end web development experience including working with 3rd party frameworks such as jQuery, jQuery UI, Knockout, Bootstrap and others. I have designed and built web applications from scratch and have also worked with designers to implement functionality based on pre-determined designs. I'm a hard working software engineer who prides himself on the quality and completeness of his work. I work efficiently while adhering to best practices and remaining mindful of performance, potential bottlenecks, memory usage, etc. I would be a great addition to any project as a single developer or as a new developer on an existing team.

    Expert Web ( and Mobile (iOS/Android) Project Manager

    United States - Last active: 12 hours ago - Portfolio: 4

    Hello, my name is Ian and I want to help you with your next project! I have 10 years of experience in managing software development teams using the SCRUM development model. I have managed teams as small as 2 members and as large as 30. On every project I ensure best practices such as Test Driven Design, clean readable extensible code, and coding standards. Take a look at my portfolio to see some of the projects I have managed from conception to completion. I have over 10 years experience with the entire development lifecycle from architecting solutions, to developing mobile/desktop/server/web/webservices applications, to project management with SCRUM. I specialize in Mobile, Unity3D, C#, client-server architecture, and web services. I am also fluent in Java, C++, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and SQL. In Mobile Development I have worked with both iOS and Android. I have worked with Java, Objective-C, Unity3D, and supporting web services on the backend to create amazing interactive experiences. My app, GameSlam, won ESPN's 2011 Best new Sports App award. In web services I have worked on numerous projects that required providing an API to access data in a database whether a SQL DB or no-sql. I use Test Driven Design (JUnit/NUnit) to minimize bugs and ensure future development does not break previous development. In Unity3D I have created numerous games that were deployed to Web, Facebook, Android, iOS, PC. and Mac. I currently use Unity3D Pro Team Edition v5. I also have an Adobe CC subscription. Games I've created include an Online Trading Card Game for Chaotic TCG, a sports prediction game called GameSlam, and a 2.5D Multiplayer Action Platformer in the FORGE universe on Steam. All of the games are multiplayer and required a game server which I have also built so I have extensive knowledge of client-server interactions, thin clients, and networking. These are just some of the highlights that I have worked on. Basically I am an expert developer who is looking for a little extra work. I can provide the work myself or if your project requires a team I can easily build out a team as I have done many times. I am setting my rates on the lower end as I am just getting started with UpWork. Take advantage of lower rates for an expert developer and send me your project details for a free estimate!

    Gerard Marks

    Database Performance Consultant / DBA

    Ireland - Last active: 22 days ago

    In 2007, Gerard undertook a PhD project in the area of XML database performance. The project was prototype driven which provided Gerard with a deep understanding of core database technologies such as join processing algorithms and indexing functionality. In this time, Gerard became a high performance software developer and an administrator of the leading relational (Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL) and XML databases (eXist, MonetDB). In 2010, the technology that Gerard produced during his PhD was introduced to a leading software company in the travel industry. Gerard was challenged with the objective of using his technology to optimise the performance of their hotel search engine. To achieve this goal, Enterprise Ireland awarded Gerard with an Innovation Partnership grant, which was co-funded with the travel company. The project was successful and resulted in a software licence for DCU in 2012. After the success of the Innovation Partnership it quickly became obvious that a sophisticated migration process would be required to get the new technology (that was licenced from DCU) into the production version of the hotel search engine. For this purpose, the travel company hired Gerard as an independent consultant for the first 7 months of 2013. While there, Gerard worked with a number of (agile scrum) software development teams to implement the new technology in two week sprint cycles. In industry, Gerard got a deep understanding of the practicalities of database migration in production systems. As a result, he saw a need to automate the challenging and time consuming tasks within the database migration process. In particular, he realised that the main overhead and risk associated with database migration centred on the need to rewrite existing, functionally correct, application code for the non-functional requirement of performance. Based on the success of the project with the travel company, Enterprise Ireland awarded Gerard a further grant to implement this new database migration product suite. In 2013, Gerard founded the Database Performance and Migration Group in Dublin City University and led an experienced software development team through the implementation of the new database migration product suite. In this time, Gerard became proficient in large scale event processing, query parsing and rewriting, and plugin development. In 2015, Gerard established Optimality Ltd a company that specialises in enhancing and extending the life of software applications with a unique brand of database products and services.
