    Ruby developer

    United States - Last active: 12/20/2009 - Tests: 7

    Ruby has been my main language for a number of years now. I also use Javascript frequently (on the client and server), and Java and Perl when the need arises. I use Ruby on Rails for a number of projects, but a large part of my Ruby work is outside of Rails, as ruby is now my primary language. I have a great deal of SQL experience but have been using noschema databases for most new projects for a couple of years (specifically MongoDB). I have been working in a freelance environment for a number of years, and have a multi-machine linux-based network with constantly running infrastructure suited to tackle any task as it arises. I do a reasonable amount of system administration for my own pleasure or in the cloud for clients, and also run and administer client production deployments myself.

    Jamaica - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 8

    Ranked among the top oDesk contractors from Jamaica for Q1 2012 and represented oDesk at a local job fair. oDesk - "We commend him on his success and thank him for sharing his experiences here" [See Digital Jam 2.0 in Portfolio for my guest blog post plus links to my presentation] I started programming back in 1998 in high school and I was hooked. My search for the best development framework ended when I started Ruby/Rails in 2006. Finally a framework that is designed out of the box to work they way I program (DRY). I'm looking for interesting/challenging TDD Ruby on Rails projects. Being good at unix gives me the advantage of being well able to do deployments, from as easy as Heroku to Capistrano style deployments.

    70% of all software projects fail. Why is that happening?
