    Expert Web and Systems Engineer

    Taiwan - Last active: 09/29/2014 - Tests: 1

    Having done Ruby and Rails since 2006, I'm an expert in building non-trivial applications, scaling them, and managing complexity as these applications grow. I love Ruby and Postgres, but have a lot of experience with ElasticSearch and Heroku. For scaling I'm inclined to use Cassandra or Riak, with a pinch of Redis, and a splash of Go.

    Daniel Luxemburg

    Web Application Developer

    United States - Last active: 10/22/2013

    I am interested in working on new and challenging development projects that allow me leverage my programming skills and give me an opportunity to continue staying up-to-date with the latest web application platforms and tools. I have worked for a variety of companies over the past 5 years but primarily with startups developing new projects. In some cases I have been the sole developer creating an initial prototype, in others I have joined a mid-sized team on a project already underway. Ruby (and Rails), Node.js and PHP (and especially the CodeIgniter framework) are the server-side technologies I have the most experience with. I have worked on multiple applications in each language and released open source Ruby and Node code. I have also done some work in Python and Java. While I prefer to work on server code, I am quite experienced with client-side work as well. I have done a great deal of JavaScript work, both plain old JS without a framework and with jQuery (and jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile), Backbone, and Angular. I'm very comfortable doing CSS work and with the Bootstrap CSS/JS framework.
