    Pakistan - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 9

    Ali is what I call a Soup-to-nuts developer. He can take a design concept and complete it from the beginning to end. He has a strong sense for the visual user experience and his Mobile Application work is high in quality. There is a worldwide maxim “Those who can’t do, teach” that stands true for many. But I believe that “Those who have done, mentor”. Ali Raza is certainly a member of the latter group! - Curtis Fisher - CEO PowerSource Industries I've known Ali Raza for more than 3 years he was my editor/reviewer and he helped me a lot when we worked on FFD magazine. He is very professional and thorough with everything he does. He's very friendly and he always put passion in the work he did. I can always count on him. - Ewa Dudzic - Managing Director/Editor at H9Media Ali and I worked together on building https://5amily.com/. Ali was sole flex developer that looked after building our flex client. Integrating API generated by our Rails backend in the client. We were in a hurry when we started porting our HTML/Javascript client to completely flex. And needless to say it was pleasant working with him in tight schedule. A schedule where requirements were constantly changing. He knows his craft very well and is also passionate about learning everything that is new out there. I will highly recommend him to anyone. - Waseem Ahmad - CTO at Authorly, Rails Contributor I am a lead designer, developer, author, consultant and entrepreneur with over 8 years of global IT industry experience in almost every field of design and development. I am not only a Jane of all trades, but I've also mastered many disciplines. I started my career in 2002 (yes when I was in 9th grade) from graphic designer to web design and later development during my studies in computer science. Currently I am passionate about developing applications and games for multiple platforms using cross platform technologies. I hold a Masters degree in computer science in addition to over 100+ official certifications in the field of design & development from Adobe, Microsoft, Oracle and Zend. I happen to be not just Pakistan’s only Adobe Training Partner but also Pakistan’s only Microsoft Certified Trainer in Enterprise, Desktop and Web Development. I am a published author and have written exam guides for Adobe Flex. Furthermore, I have also contributed to several articles in Flash & Flex Developer Magazines. If you are a startup that have an idea about a future product, or if you require one man army to take your product from scratch to launch, or you need manager or team lead to make your product successful, or you need official training on adobe and Microsoft technologies, then let’s talk :) For more info: http://www.linkedin.com/in/manofspirit http://training.adobe.com/training/partner-finder/ali_raza_mcs_aci_acm.html Regards Ali RAZA I am currently seeking opportunities which utilize cross-platform technologies to develop (and even design) apps and games for Desktop, Mobile and Web.

    Flash Game Engine Programmer (AS3)

    United States - Last active: 17 hours ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 51

    As a Flash game engine programmer, I am adept with the low-level engines for browser-based, 2D, single-player Flash games writing ActionScript 3. My own Flash games have also been sponsored, and I have coded over 50 Flash game engines for clients. Services and terms: 1). Programming and development of the game engine for single-player, 2D, browser-based Flash, non-ad game(s). This is game engine programming exclusively, and does not include designing the game(s), content management, building the web page(s) on which the game(s) might be hosted, or implementing or configuring other server-side resources (high-scoring, login system, user accounts, web scripting, databases, etc.) 2). An ideal minimum duration for the project should be at least 3 months. The project must be for the development of a new game engine, thus, not modifying an existing one, unless I was the previous, sole developer of that engine, and the engine has not been modified by someone else after I have worked on it. Furthermore, the project must not include integration onto third party social sites, such as Facebook, nor must the target platform designate mobile devices. An exception here is if I produce a Flash SWF, then send it to you (as the engine would be complete at this point), then on your end, you convert/port it to your desired platform. 3). Game design details, gameplay mechanics, media (graphics and audio) must already be provided. This includes, but not limited to concepts, gameplay rules, scoring systems, and user interface layouts/functionality. Please contact me if you have any questions.
