Ivan V.

Expert web developer with 20+ years of experience


Playa del Carmen, Mexico


I started in software development about 18 years ago, first with languages like BASIC, Pascal, C++, and later Visual Basic. It was like love at first sight, and since then I haven't stopped learning and being amazed at what we accomplish as an industry each passing year. About 12 years ago I moved to web development out of dislike of the .NET framework (the natural progression for me at the time), and started learning PHP. Over the next few years I was always looking for ways to make development with PHP easier, as it wasn't a very elegant language, in my ... moreopinion. Then, about 6 years ago, I discovered Ruby on Rails, and that re-ignited the passion for software development in me. Not that I lost it, but I was increasingly becoming frustrated with PHP. So my objective is to continue on this path of learning and growing, and at the same time, help you implement your visions and dreams with the experience and expertise I can bring to your projects. PS: I have experience in implementing both Intranet systems and public websites and applications. I've developed internal apps for automating systems like payrolls and document management. I've created several websites, and web apps too, and my current "flag-ship" personal project is a portal for the educational sector in Mexico -- http://eduportal.com.mx/ and http://eduportal.mx/expo/ Currently I specialize in working with Ruby on Rails, and I have experience in PostgreSQL, MySQL, SQL Server, and of course, SQLite :) I'm also experienced in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Now, if you don't care about the implementation details, just leave it to me and I'll deliver to you a top notch project within your specifications in no time. 100% satisfaction guarantee. less
