Matthew S.

Experienced PHP Developer


Grayling, United States


I consider myself a fairly decent programmer. I'm fluent in web and software application programming. Lately I've been involved mostly in web applications (using PHP). I'm more suited with web application (getting things working - and well) rather than web design (making things look pretty). The projects I've been involved with used PHP/CodeIgniter along with jQuery for browser scripting. I've also done some work with WordPress plugins. I'm also adaquently experienced in software applications. Programming stuff for Windows and Linux using cross-platform toolkits namely: Qt and wxWidgets. I've also done some low-level GUI stuff using Simple DirectMedia Layer (another cross-platform toolkit). I like ... morecomputers, enjoy programming and like the challenge of coming up with good software solutions. less

    Timesheet app
    Matthew was breath of fresh air from the start - he read the specification in its entirety before bidding on our project (quite uncommon!), understood what's needed and then proceeded to implement it fully. I can't say there were no bumps along the road to completion but every issue we raised was fixed to our satisfaction. I would highly recommend Matthew for any project that requires dedicated software developer that's able to quickly tackle difficult challenges.

    Qt Rsync uploader/downlaoder to S3
    Matthew is a joy to work with, friendly dedicated, good documentation and updates in email. Over the last 2 months he built a important complicated Qt client/server script for us and it worked successfully. The only things that give me 4 stars is others developers integrating with it found the code 'dancing' and not quite as knowledgeable about the insides of Qt as they would have liked..but it does work. Also He does keep somewhat odd hours (like me) so that made it harder to integrate with the rest of the team in other parts of the world but that may not affect you. He was happy to get setup on skype to make communicating easier.
