Nickson Kaigi

Python Django Javascript


Nairobi, Kenya


I am a well seasoned creator and developer of useful web tools. Every line of code is tested and optimized to produce absolutely beautiful work. I produce stunning work with my tools of trade: python + JavaScript. As a dedicated and meticulous software craftsman, I painstakingly pay attention to every detail. My zeal to excel pushes me to find exciting ways both old and new to challenge myself in my quest to become a python and JavaScript Jedi master! Free and Open Source Software tools create disruptive tech and as such I am a champion advocate for the use of ... moreopen source tools. I work with Linux based OS's. I am highly experienced in developing large scale, distributed web applications with Python + Django. I can use Pyramid if needed. As an all round developer, very comfortable deploying my web apps on linux boxes that are hosted on several hosting companies including AWS, Linode, Heroku and Microsoft Azure. I use Nginx to serve my static content, and Uwsgi to handle the python project. I am also comfortable using Gunicorn. I use both MySQL and PostgreSQL in my web projects, and have experience working with NoSQL engines like CouchDB and MongoDB. For version control, I can track my code with git or mercurial.

    Nickson was easy to work with, and even though he joined the project quite late in the development life cycle, he was able to pick up the inner workings of the application pretty fast. I will hire Nickson again, as more projects open up that match his expertise and skills.
