I have 6 years of experience designing many types of ... morewebsites. Most of my earlier projects were intranet based for the industrial sector, and based on Java servlet technology. My sites provided SCADA-like monitoring functionality for a fraction of the cost of a traditional SCADA system. Now, my focus is on building public-facing sites using the Django framework. I specialize in Django because I believe it allows me to be at my most productive, and therefore giving the best value to my clients. My core competency is server-side development, but I'm also strong with client-side technologies. I frequently use Javascript (generally using the jQuery framework) to provide a rich client experience, adding AJAX functionality where appropriate. I'm also very capable with general (X)HTML/CSS technologies, and believe in separating content from functionality as much as possible. I also have experience with newer JS frameworks like Backbone.js, and LESS / SASS on the CSS side. I also have expertise in integrating with third party API's, from social sites such as Facebook and Twitter, payment gateways such as Authorize.NET, PayPal, and Braintree, and other miscellaneous API's from providers like OneRiot, Embedly, and AddThis. less

    Chris is a skilled developer and a good communicator, when he does keep in touch. Unfortunately, after an initial burst of work on the project, responsiveness, availability, and communication dropped off drastically. I understand developers aren't able to respond at the drop of the hat, but I do expect e-mails answered within a week. A bit of a shame, though, as Chris writes easy to understand, well documented code, and seems to have understood my requirements quite well. Just needed more availability and responsiveness than he could provide.
