    Senior Programmer

    South Africa - Last active: 11/05/2014 - Tests: 4

    I’ve worked in the computer industry for most of my career, centred around system administration, and web and systems development. I am particularly skilled in Linux system administration, and the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) development platform, and enjoy working in an environment based on open-source development tools and systems. My forte is in application and web architecture, with an emphasis on modular and component styles of development. I have years of experience in designing clean, functional database-oriented web sites. From a technological perspective, I like to stay at the forefront of current trends in development and systems architecture. The industry changes so fast. It is essential to research and experiment with new ideas constantly to see what will work for you. I am a stickler for standards-compliant, best practices for development to reduce development time and ensure that the product that is designed is the product that is seen by the clients. I firmly believe in source control systems combined with unit testing to reduce overall development time and ensure the product is delivered as specified. In most of my jobs where I have worked in a team, I become the resource that others turn to when they have problems they cannot solve or seek advice on how to implement a particular solution. From a personal perspective, I am an easygoing, social person; casual in outlook, but driven to be the best I can. I have a wealth of knowledge in a number of different areas of the IT industry, and look forward to working with companies that share my ideals. Specialties: PHP, Python, Ruby, JavaScript, information architecture, development, cms, system design, database, applications
