Yury Pukhalsky

UNIX guru

Russia - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

First thing off: I DON'T USE SKYPE nor ICQ (as they are proprietary closed protocols), but I have jabber. 20 years of experience with almost every flavour of industrial unixen, portable programming (C-99, POSIX, autotools), portable shell programming (POSIX.2) — dealt with many subtleties in different implementations. I work fast, if in doubt, ask for the estimate time. Probably it'll be cheaper than hiring someone with lower rate, but who'll spend several times more hours. I'm honest, reliable and tenacious. If I apply, that means that I'm 100% sure I can do the job meeting my high quality standards. The code must “just work”, elegant and concise. There's too much non-working, ugly and bloated stuff around:( Lifetime warranty for my work (doesn't include new features though). • Automating everything • UNIX system programming including embedded systems • Web scraping and any other text transformations/extractions. • Consulting about UNIX shell scripting (bourne shell, bash, awk, sed, [BE]RE etc). • Anyway, the list is not full, as I have experience ranging from Jenkins CI setups and maintenance to writing parsers with lex/yacc. From IP traffic handling in C++ (libnetfilter_queue plus iptables custom kernel module) to product installers. I use Gentoo and EMACS. PS. oDesk thinks my photo isn't “professional”. Therefore I have none. I'm easily googlable though, and if you want you can find any information about me outside of oDesk. PPS. Aquila non captat muscas. Normally.
