    United States - Last active: 03/28/2011 - Tests: 2

    I have been involved in Linux and FreeBSD system administration for over 10 years when I began managing servers for a social networking website. After starting my own web hosting business and working in multiple positions in both the private and public sector, I consider myself an expert in system administration and designing systems to meet customer needs. With degrees in Business Honors and Management Information Systems, I can quickly articulate business needs and translate these into technical requirements. My technical experience allows me to then research and choose the best and most economical needs to match customer requirements.

    web development / net presence

    Australia - Last active: 07/11/2014 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

    After graduating in computing, I spent a year developing interfaces and APIs for financial transaction devices in Windows before moving into an area that had more appeal for me : system level communications and messaging, largely focused on a C++ / Unix / Oracle platform. I spent six years mostly juggling messages and communication channels between databases and queues. But I got tired of living in big cities, and hatched an escape plan. I started doing short term contracts for web projects using a range of scripting languages at the server, and AJAX in the browserI began with various short term contracts for web interface development using content management systems and frameworks including Drupal, Django and Node, programming in languages including PHP, Python and Javascript/Coffeescript. I've moved on to building web apps with rich client side frameworks, often with a full javascript stack including mongodb.

    Before I even go to university i started working with Web-development. My first experience was about 6 years ago with pure HTML using frames in Dreamweaver 3. Since then I have worked hard to improve my skills in every way possible, not just as a web-developer but as a general programmer, and now I work essentially with Open Source software like Python(+Django), PHP, Linux/FreeBSD, PostgreSQL, etc.My degree in computer science helped me to understand the basics of a computer from the bits in the processor instructions to multimedia, and thus can be used everywhere to improve the final result of a project.
