    I am a talented and experienced full-stack web application developer. I work almost exclusively in Ruby on Rails. I love developing applications “the Rails way”. I appreciate the brilliance of the Rails architecture and enjoy using it to build world-class applications. I’ve created a number of complex systems using Rails including e-commerce sites, inventory management systems, scheduling systems, forum applications, internal organizational systems, and order fulfillment systems. My rails knowledge is also augmented with intimate knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, Sass, SQL, and jQuery.

    [oDesk Top 20] Ruby on Rails Web Application & ECommerce Developer

    United States - Last active: 01/14/2011 - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 8

    Wow - I was just ranked by oDesk as #5 out of all web developers on the site. Thanks to all of my great clients for making this possible! Look - I know you're a business person. You have a great idea for a web application, and you need someone to help you bring it to life. I've helped a number of entrepreneurs turn their ideas into reality. Just check out my portfolio. I've built complex shopping sites, social networks, affiliate sites, and rich internet applications from the ground up. So, if you need someone who can take the ball and run with it, I'm your man. Most entrepreneurs have similar concerns: Budget -------- Most people in your shoes have to worry about the budget (don't we all?). That's why I quote a fixed price for all of my projects. Not an estimate, a quote. So you know *exactly* how much money you need to spend to get your site up and ready for customers. But if you're looking for the cheapest - someone who'll cut corners to save a few minutes' work - you'd better look elsewhere. My work is on par with most of my peers who chare $100 or more per hour. I'd rather spend my time coding, rather than trying to convince someone to pay me $100/hour. :) Support ---------- All of my clients have my mobile number. I'm located in the US, Central time zone so it's easy to reach me. If you desire, I can handle the setup and administration of your web server. All of my work has a 30 day guarantee. So if you find any bugs once the app is deployed, I'll fix them for free. Growth --------- You want to be able to add new features to your web application as you grow more and more successful. Coders who take shortcuts can make this nearly impossible. Some of the applications I've seen that were created by inexperienced offshore developers are like time-bombs. You want to make a simple change, but you don't know if you should cut the red or green wire. I put in a lot of effort to make sure that my code is clean, modular, and readable. That means the next guy who works on the application will be able to make changes quickly and easily. Competence --------------- A developer should have an intimate knowledge of his tools. Ruby on Rails: I've used rails to develop e-commerce sites, social networks, as well as back-office applications. Ruby: I have released a number of open-source projects. JavaScript:I've created highly interactive GUIs for web applications using Javascript, jquery and extjs. These include data grids, custom dialogs, and menus. I'm proficient in using Javascript to consume web services. Python:I've used Python to implement a recurring billing system, email autoresponders, and a custom queue server to mitigate database scaling issues. MySQL:I've used mysql from PHP and Python, with both the ADODB abstraction libraries and language-specific APIs.

    Johnathon Wright Agency Contractor

    [oDesk top 20] Experienced Web App Developer - Ruby, Rails, Agile, TDD

    United States - Last active: 4 months ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 12

    My goal is a pragmatic one: I write great software the easiest way possible. Easiest doesn't necessarily mean fastest... it means pretty fast, with a very low bug count, easy to change, and to spec. I focus on solving business problems rather than building the "coolest toy ever" -- some people call that effectatious, but that's not really a word. In March of 2010, I was recognized by oDesk as one of their top web developers based on feedback scores. In February of 2011, I was interviewed by oDesk and was one of three "featured contractors." You can read their article here: http://www.odesk.com/w/jobs/contractor-case-study/johnathan_wright_ruby_on_rails_developer About my experience: I have worked on at least 7 enterprise-level applications in the medical, e-commerce, CMS, real estate and auction spaces. I have worked on probably a dozen smaller applications both for clients and personal use, and have released three open-source programs, all written in Ruby. I generally work in a language named Ruby, using Ruby on Rails, a software tool that facilitates getting top-quality websites built expeditiously. In the course of building websites, I often work with javascript and AJAX. My style of development could easily be described as Agile, XP or TDD. I try to keep up on other up-to-date patterns and tools. In addition to Ruby and javascript, I have worked with at least 4 other languages and two other web frameworks. In terms of seeing whether we will be a fit, here are a few things I look for in a project / client: - I require challenging projects and the technical freedom to solve your problems. - I thrive on projects where clients describe business problems and we work together to find a way to make mitigate or resolve them. (the opposite being a deck of screen shots... if you have a deck of screen shots, we probably are not a fit.) - When working with geographically-disparate teams, I prefer small, well-qualified development teams (from 1 to 3 developers, where at least one of the other two developers is very experienced.)  - I prefer to work on projects that clearly contribute business value to the organizations they support, rather than facebook apps, pet projects, or random experiments. Feel free to contact me with questions. Good luck on your project!
