    PHP Web App Developer: Any Framework, APIs and UI. 15+ years (USA)

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 12

    Since 1998 I have developed dozens of web applications focusing on a wide-range of industries including custom search engines, affiliate marketing, real estate solutions and worker safety. As an autodidact, I pride myself on learning new technologies and continually improving my skill-set. As a freelancer, I believe in professionalism, clean code and representing my craft to the highest degree possible. On the server-side, Laravel is my current PHP framework of choice, although I am comfortable working with Zend, CodeIgniter, Cake and Yii. For the database layer, I have 14 years of experience with MySQL. On the client-side, I prefer jQuery, Backbone and Twitter Bootstrap. Although I am not a graphic designer, I know my way around the Adobe software suite. I write standard compliant HTML5 and CSS3. I have an eye for useable, clean and obvious functionality. I have experience with many APIs, including Amazon, Box.net, Infusionsoft, Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, eWay, Authorize.net and Google. I can write APIs from scratch and give your application a RESTful interface. I am seeking opportunities to build custom web applications from the ground up or taking an existing code base and improving upon it.

    United States - Last active: 21 days ago - Portfolio: 1

    I have over 10 years’ experience in the aerospace/defense industry. Having a general engineering degree (vs. a degree specifically in mechanical engineering) means that I am more well-rounded than the average engineer and have taken a wider variety of courses including electrical, environmental, aerospace and software engineering. I frequently volunteer for various Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) functions in my local community. I excel at taking technical concepts and converting them into step-by-step instructions or explanations for the non-technical community.

    Agile Coach, Lean IdeaLab, Project Manager, Certified Scrum Master

    United States - Last active: 12/07/2014 - Tests: 1

    I have 17 years of experience. Using Agile and Lean, I created the Lean IdeaLab which successfully took the Lean Startup to an established company to quickly innovate. In the first 4 sprints/iterations (8 weeks total), we created 4 MVP's (see below for more info). We created a Lean User Advisory Panel of 850 enthusiastic users without spending a dime. I will show you how to quickly set up a Lean IdeaLab and why every company should have one! Agile and Scrum Coaching: I also provide Agile and Scrum coaching (I'm a CSM and CSPO). I've been a Sr. Program Manager for over 10 years. If you have a team of 8 and I help you achieve just a 5% improvement, that is over $40,000 in just one year. You're looking for results - as there is a LOT of bad Agile and Scrum out there. When looking for a great Agile coach, ask the following questions: -How often do you actually deploy to production (we deploy every two weeks on the night the sprint ends! We've done this for years now.) -How many teams have you successfully started up? (I've started up 5) -How long have you been a Scrum Master (I've been one for over 5 years on multiple teams) -Have you ever been coached or consulted by outside Agile coaches? (I've worked with Lyssa Adkins, author of Coaching Agile Teams and Accenture.) -How well does your team complete what they've committed? (For 2012, we completed 95.5% of what we committed to!) -What percentage of production bug fixes were made (For 2012, we only spent 1.2% of sprint points for production bugs, achieving very high quality). I love Agile and Scrum (I've even applied it to how the software engineers reporting to me set their goals for their performance appraisal). What you'll get with me: Instead of taking a consultant approach and saying how you need to improve x, y, z, I take a coaching approach where I find out your situation and context, and work with you and your team(s) to come up with changes they buy into and want to make. It is a very different approach than a consultant. Now, about the Lean IdeaLab: We achieved some amazing results in just the first 4 sprints (total of 8 weeks): -4 MVP’s - Created 4 Minimum Viable Products (MVP’s), including our first mobile app -User Advisory Panel – We sent out a survey and later received over 850 responses to join our panel -Lean IdeaJam - Organized our first off-site IdeaJam session with 10 cross-departmental employees -Companywide Presentation and Survey of MVP’s and future Plans and Ideas – Why we waited until we had 3 MVP’s to show the company before we announced the IdeaLab team and sent an internal survey -Culture Change – We quickly began changing the culture by showing how people’s ideas are quickly turned into MVP’s and how our simple process for evaluating ideas means every idea gets a fair shot Unlike other coaches and consultants, I will share with you the exact documents I used, the key expectations we set for the team, the survey questions, etc., so you can quickly modify and set up a Lean IdeaLab. It has been the most exciting thing I've ever done, and has produced the best results. Again, you want someone who can help deliver results and make a big impact. I'm happy to talk to you about how I can help. Andrew Crookston
