Juan Passadore

Juan Passadore

Web Developer

Brazil - Tests: 5

In the 10+ years I've been doing web development I've accumulated a good amount of knowledge in a wide range of related technologies and tools. Having always worked in small teams I've had the luck of staying dynamic and be able to move forward and experiment all the new and shiny stuff. I have extensive experience (6+ years) in javascript (both client and server side) and PHP, MySQL, MongoDB and everything that makes a website really (HTML, CSS, Less, Bootstrap, etc). To a lesser extent I've worked with Ruby, Perl and Python. I'm an open source fan. Linux being my desktop OS since before my web development forays. KDE > Gnome, Vim > emacs. And since I'm opinionating I say: "javascript should be written with semicolons!" What I care about most is in building long lasting and meaningful relationships with the client. I aim to continue learning and progressing in my career while providing outstanding value.

Rails Dev With Diverse Skill Set

United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 5

Hey, what's up? Thank you for reviewing my profile, I'm glad you stopped by! My name is Dave and here's the skill set I can bring to your project or team: Ruby on Rails Development - Experience with Heroku, Postgres, Devise, Pundit, Paperclip, Geocoder, etc. Front End Development - Bootstrap, Sass, Less, and a little bit of AngularJS Graphic Development and Retouching - 11+ years of Photoshop experience with an extensive focus on photo retouching, complex compositing, and stylized post production. Other Cool Stuff - Audio engineering, video editing / post production, marketing, and I'm a damn fine party planner! But wait, there's more! I also speak fluent English, am on EST time, and according to the Dali Llama, on my death bed I'll achieve total consciousness, so I got that going for me. On a serious note, I am looking primarily for ongoing rails positions that will challenge me and expand my knowledge. I also know that being able to fill some gaps when needed can be a huge benefit. I am happy to jump in and be of help in a range of areas outside of web development if needed, such as marketing and content creation. Finally, and as I would expect from anyone in web development in this day and age, I am very familiar with Wordpress and able to assist with just about anything a project could require. I would love to chat with you more about your thing / project / hopes and dreams / and the like... So please hit me up with a message and let's do lunch. Thanks again and talk soon!
