    Flash, Flex, Actionscript, Education/Teaching, Mobile (Android/IOS)

    United Kingdom - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 10

    I first started programming with Perl-CGI, C, HTML, CSS and Javascript in a Linux environment. I have worked on a wide range of projects, and in recent years I have developed additional skills in Flash and Flex. I regularly create Android and IOS applications in addition to online and desktop applications. I have experience of game design, and I am confident that I could contribute to the creative design process. You can see my own demonstration games at www.orientalfudge.co.uk. I have also worked on a series of multi-player games for a client using the XIFF/Jabber chat server. I can program Actionscript 3 both as a script and as OOP. I find Flash CS6 particularly advantageous for fast prototyping. I can also program in Adobe Flex using Flash Builder 4.6. In 2008-2009 I decided to embark on a teacher training course. I value the flexibility offered by this profession and at the time of writing I am involved in creating video lessons for programming in Actionscript. I would welcome the opportunity to get involved in online/virtual teaching in addition to software development opportunities. --- Information about using Adobe AIR to create Android and IOS apps: 1. Myth: Apple doesn't allow Adobe AIR on its platform. Reality: Adobe AIR has been used for development of mobile applications for Android and IOS for several years. 2. Myth: Apps created in Adobe AIR require additional software to be downloaded to make them work. Reality: This used to be the case, but apps created in Adobe AIR are now self-contained and do not require additional software to run. 3. Myth: Adobe AIR is inferior to apps programmed in Java for Android or C in IOS. Reality: Apps created in Adobe AIR can be programmed to be indistinguishable from native apps, including compatibility with the latest retina displays. They can be built to have responsive layouts and intuitive user interfaces. 4. The advantages of using Adobe AIR to build apps: (a) You save on development time because only one set of code needs to be produced. (b) If you need updates later on, only one set of code needs to be updated. (c) If you already have Flash files for the Internet, it is easy to adapt them to use on mobile phones. (d) Your app will look the same on both Android and IOS by default. 5. Issues to be aware of when commissioning mobile apps built in Adobe AIR: (a) They won't install on older ARM6 phones (for Android) or the iPhone 3. (b) Some phone functions cannot be accessed directly by Adobe AIR and require 'native extensions' (programs that can be accessed by the app which have been written in code native to that platform). (c) The Adobe AIR interpreter is built out of native code, so the performance of an AIR app is lower by definition. Techniques to optimise app performance mean that you may not notice the difference, especially if your app is not hungry for processing power. (d) They do not make use of any in-built user-interface elements provided by the Android or IOS platforms. (e) AIR apps sometimes need updating when a new mobile operating system is released to be compatible with the new operating system (this is also true of native apps, but to a lesser extent in my experience). If you want your apps for 'in house' purposes (i.e. not for general release), then this issue is less likely to affect you. Please contact me if you want to know more or if you are unsure about whether or not Adobe AIR would be suitable for building your app. If you want your app to look and behave in exactly the same way on Android and IOS, then Adobe AIR may be your ideal solution with the added advantage of requiring only one set of code to be written instead of two.

    Reliability and quality

    France - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 3

    French native certified translator. Precise, reliable and experienced in translations from English (Us and British) to French in technical, business, marketing, IT, legal, travel, food and fashion areas, Apps and websites localizations. I am recognized by and declared to the French Administration as a translator, producing invoices of my work for your business bookkeeping needs (my tax numbers are Siren n° 799 636 980 and Siret n° 799 636 980 00010). I can assist you by translating and writing French-language texts that are more relevant to a French audience, with the proper Gallic « tournure », twist. The art of translation is as old as written literature. Translation must take into account constraints that include context, the rules of grammar of the two languages, their writing conventions, and their idioms. A common misconception is that there exists a simple word-for-word correspondence between any two languages, and that translation is a straightforward mechanical process; such a word-for-word translation, however, cannot take into account context, grammar, conventions, and idioms. To be a good translator, it is necessary to understand the internal system of a language and the context of the entire text being translated. Thus, the translator will be able to produce the same effect in both languages. Very aware of the new leading technologies, my extensive exposure to the English language from an early age and my years of experience as a translator are my strongest points. You’ll get a turnkey file, fully edited and produced and ready for immediate use. Prompt Service: Turnarounds of under 24 hours! Prompt communication, available in a variety of means. Software: Word/Excel/Powerpoint/Poedit.Wordfast/AEGISUB. I live in France, about two and a half hours from Paris and one hour from both Nantes and Rennes. I have a fast broadband internet connection, a state-of-the art computer system as well as numerous desk reference materials. I sincerely hope my application will attract your attention and I'll be happy to give you further details if necessary.. Please inquire about project pricing and long-term assistance so we can develop a plan that works for you.

    Senior Drupal developer - EU (responsive sites, consulting)

    Lithuania - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 9

    My major interest is Drupal development and only Drupal development. I'm concentrated on the exact CMS as I believe that one can be a real professional in only one applied area. That's the reason why I deal with Drupal, HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP, MySQL, and Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign for more than 7 years in a row and do my best to meet the client's requirements. I have an eye on design as well coding skills coupled with broad knowledge of best modern UX practices, it makes a perfect combination for PSD to Drupal service taken to the next level in comparison to most other similar services out there. I do use Drupal at its best and utilize the power of template engines, Drupal hooks, and popular contributed modules to deliver the templates which are easy to use and maintain. All templates of mine come as Drupal field based solutions where you don't need to know even a bit of HTML to manage your content and its look and feel. It makes back-end management UI extremely user friendly and front-end output as bullet proof and predictable as provided PSD, only in HTML/CSS/JS flesh and Drupal blood. Also all templates are QA tested for cross browser compatibility (down to IE9), as well as retina and responsive readiness. Check out www.idealabs.eu for more details.
