    Full Stack Developer with Awesome JavaScript Skills

    United States - Last active: 10/22/2014 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    Hey, you've come to the right guy ;) Rather than tell you how qualified I am to do your job, I'm going to tell you how easy and stress-free it will be to work with me (cuz trust me, I got the code part handled) First things first, I'm doing this more for love of code than for money. I'm currently happily employed full-time by an awesome tech company here in San Francisco ;) So for that reason, I'm only taking on a project that is something I enjoy working on. Sorry folks! My pixel pushing web dev/design days are over ;) I only build full-stack web applications, with designs provided. I used to do the design as well, but that's not where I shine, the code is where I do my best work, so that's what I'm going to write for you. So, if you have a web application that you need built, and have someone else who can do the design for you, I'm happy to build it for you. Come to me with your app idea, and mockups, and I will breathe life into it. Get in touch, and we can start tackling the game plan right away! Cheers, -Andrew Languages and Frameworks I know best: -Ruby on Rails -JavaScript -Backbone.js -Marionette.js -jQuery -HTML5 -CSS3 -SASS Languages and Frameworks I'm learning: -Node.js -WebGL -Angular.js

    Application Developer Consultant

    United States - Last active: 08/28/2014 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

    My specialty is database architecture. I have built solutions for major corporations like JP Morgan Chase and OhioHealth. I'm good at seeing the big picture, and my wide breadth of experience allows me to explain the pro's and con's of all of the options available. I don't want any clients wasting money on solutions that don't work in the long-run. I have experience with almost every kind of database structure (data warehousing, Oracle, SSIS, and Informatica). I have also learned and implemented solutions involving Ruby, C#, Visual Basic (.net), and done a fair bit of difficult automation through command shell scripting (and batch processing).
