    Senior Dev: Perl/Catalyst/Moose/DBIC/NoSQL+AJAX/jQuery, shell+sysadmin

    Ukraine - Last active: 20 hours ago - Tests: 19

    Seeking opportunities in Perl oriented (Catalyst DBIC preferred) application development, shell and perl scripting, and BSD/Linux administration projects - to build sites and setup servers for your business or pleasure.In my mind, LAMP more often reads as LASP - Linux, Apache, (any|no)SQL, Perl - of course, with Catalyst, Template Toolkit and DBIx::Class/KiokuDB in pair with some RCS (git is preferred, but subversion, mercurial and others also possible). And of course, all can be integrated with AJAX libraries such as jQuery, Prototype, MooTools and other to create Web2.0 apptications.Great knowledge of regular expressions (regexp). Have real experience with MySql, Postgres, Oracle, CouchDB, LDAP, also worked with CPanel, Plesk and Ensim. And of course, have experience with Apache, SMTP (exim, postfix, sendmail), IMAP/POP (Cyrus, UW, Dovecot), firewalls (bsd/ipfw and linux/iptables), Samba and misc ftp and proxy solutions.I can work well as alone and as a team member.

    70% of all software projects fail. Why is that happening? A few reasons: - Poor communication - Poor communication - Poor communication - Badly defined requirements - Wrong project's priorities - Sloppy development practices How do I address these issues: *Communication & Requirements clarification* - Monday to Friday daily status meetings at fixed time, suitable for all team members(customer is a team member). - Weekly iteration planning meetings. - Transparent and easy-to-use Project Management tools. *Project prioritization* - Complexity estimation - Short iterations & short feedback loop *Development practices* - Perfectly clean code - Test Driven Development (99% test coverage). - Obligatory code review & collective code ownership. - Domain Driven Design, Lean Architecture, GRASP, SOLID If this sounds good for you, let's get this done.
