Professional Instructional Designer and Training F...

United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 4

The combination of my education and experience is a solid foundation for a position within Instructional Design (ID). Having completed a BS and MS in Instructional Design, I have a strong foundation of ID methodology, theory, and design principles. I have over 3 years working experience within higher education as an Instructional Designer and educator, in addition to my time learning through higher education. My roles have ranged from my work with The Center for the Application of Information Technologies at Western Illinois University as an Instructional Designer meeting with faculty and building online educational systems, to teaching undergraduate students technology within the classroom, to developing online and classroom training and professional development materials for East Carolina University Office of Grants and Contracts. I also have corporate training development experience with UnitedHealthcare and Manic Media Group, INC, based in Washington D.C.. Within those two positions I managed multiple projects and assumed a lead designer role. I was tasked with implementing best practices, solid design work, and suggesting appropriate design methods while remaining innovative. Within Instructional Design, I am a multipurpose tool. I excel at front-end analysis, developing the foundation for design and development through the ADDIE model, evaluation and measurement, and overall client relations. Furthermore, as a creative individual, I also excel at storyboarding, multimedia development, photography, and various design software programs, such as the Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office. I have intermediate to proficient skills with most technologies used in this fiend, to include BlackBoard, Lectora, and Camtasia. Being able to design and develop instructional materials and systems with outstanding design and visual principles, and developing full working instructional design systems that are rich with analysis and instructional design theory, I feel I am a perfect candidate for this position. Furthermore, my written and verbal communication skills are superb, and allow me to navigate a variety of conversations and situations. Having been a non-traditional student, I also understand the demands and needs of online learning students from the viewpoints of the University, the Faculty, and the student alike.

High End Photo Retoucher, Photoshop Expert

Bulgaria - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 13

'If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.' - Red Adair I am expirienced high- end photo retoucher, one of the best here in oDesk. I have worked for major Bulgarian companies. I am offering only the very best retouching service and quality. Although a lot of contractors would be tempted to hire cheaper freelancer to do the job, there are some major differences which I would like to point out - First, and foremost, when you are trying to promote your brand, the first thing your clients are going to see are your photos. Think of online stores (clothes, products, technology), billboards (again..), magazines, flyers, brochures, look-books, etc, etc. The first thing that catches your client's eyes is the photo. The photo is the representation of your product and brand. The client doesnt usually see the effort put into making the product, or the time spent on it, or how much technical skill is put into it. He sees only an image of a final product- which is just like all other products he sees daily. If the photo is cheaply done (for example: plastic face, colors which are ok, but not enhanced to "catch the eye", misused techniques, etc) it will represent your brand as cheap. Here is a fast example with a swimwear. Both photos are retouched. The first one is retouch with porcelain skin effect, badly retouched, bad shadows and highlight and bad photo manipulation - you can very clearly see the girl is fakely put into the background. This is cheap work, and make your brand looks cheap. This is what you are usually getting for cheap retouch. Second is professional retouch. 1) http://oi61.tinypic.com/10x5vlz.jpg (bad retouch) 2) http://oi62.tinypic.com/1197yo4.jpg These extra few dollars spent into retouching to hire a professional, will actually bring you a lot more money. Retouching is investment in your brand and your product. -I am familiar with human anatomy, which is essential in retouching. There are incredible amount of retouchers, who doesnt give attention to that, which results in "photoshop fails", even for big companies like Target and Victoria secret. Do you think your average 5$/h knows anatomy? - I am good in color correction. I know how to change and alter colors , so your photo catches the eye. Speaking of colors, here are some examples. - I am speaking English. You would be surprised how many people here have their profiles and cover letters written for them. It looks alright, until you hire the person and start talking with him about the project- then it turns out, he doesnt quiet do what you want, because he can't really understand you. - I am creative, and I can give that extra- something your photo needs to reach the next level. - I am hardworking, reliable, and I always keep deadlines.

PHP Web App Developer: Any Framework, APIs and UI....

United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 12

Since 1998 I have developed dozens of web applications focusing on a wide-range of industries including custom search engines, affiliate marketing, real estate solutions and worker safety. As an autodidact, I pride myself on learning new technologies and continually improving my skill-set. As a freelancer, I believe in professionalism, clean code and representing my craft to the highest degree possible. On the server-side, Laravel is my current PHP framework of choice, although I am comfortable working with Zend, CodeIgniter, Cake and Yii. For the database layer, I have 14 years of experience with MySQL. On the client-side, I prefer jQuery, Backbone and Twitter Bootstrap. Although I am not a graphic designer, I know my way around the Adobe software suite. I write standard compliant HTML5 and CSS3. I have an eye for useable, clean and obvious functionality. I have experience with many APIs, including Amazon, Box.net, Infusionsoft, Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, eWay, Authorize.net and Google. I can write APIs from scratch and give your application a RESTful interface. I am seeking opportunities to build custom web applications from the ground up or taking an existing code base and improving upon it.

I turn your ideas into working software.

United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 27

My dad knew I was a programmer before I did. He bought me that first book when I was about 10. That was 28 years ago. I am a programmer with major project experience in every major language, platform, and operating system. I love working with small companies and startups. Whether you need someone to lead your team, program into the wee hours of the night, or just need someone to talk to, I can help. As your next Virtual CTO or chief architect, I can help translate your ideas into working software. As a full stack programmer, I provide frontend programming, backend programming, mobile programming, and infrastructure buildout. Whether solo or as your team lead, I bring years and depth of experience to your business. I tell people that I am a thinking programmer. Not a "ninja", or a "rock star", or someone who "bangs out code". I am not a "Ruby guy" or a "PHP guy", or an "Agile guy" or a "Waterfall guy". I am just your thinking, capable, competent programmer who sees the world in full color and adapts to the situation. Someone who sits down with you and talks plainly about your goals and what it will take to reach them. If I am the right fit, I say so. If I am not the right person, I tell you that too. Building a technology business requires more than just programming skills. Knowing how to put together servers, infrastructure, networking, security, partner integrations, prototyping, and beta testing are factors which heavily influence your success. So as well as being your programmer, I am also your systems architect and technology advocate. Embedded systems projects are flooding Kickstarter, and I love it. If you need to create and program physical devices using Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, or chipsets from Intel, ARM, and Motorola, I can offer hands-on help and experience. What about video games? Mobile, desktop, or console? I have experience with many of the top game engines including Unity, Unreal, Cry, Game Maker, and many other game development stacks including retro gaming. Or let's create your own game engine and show them all how it's done :) It has been my privilege to work with top brands like Sony, Nestle, NBC, Polaroid, Texas Instruments, Microsoft, and Adobe. As well, I have worked with many promising startups and am honored to be an oDesk Gold Member, an oDesk All-Star, and oDesk Top Rated Freelancer, and an oDesk Verified Web Developer. I have over 2,500 hours clocked on oDesk, a 5-star rating, and am 99% recommended by over 50 clients. Thank you to oDesk and all my clients who helped make this happen for me, it is a HUGE honor. Building hardware and software through oDesk is my full time occupation. I continually learn new ways and approaches to help you avoid costly mistakes and rework in your next project. If you are considering a new venture, a major addition to your existing software, or just need help crossing the finish line, you may be interested in my free ebook titled "Staying Lean". It teaches you how to build your tech startup *without* big budgets and venture capital. The book is free, all I ask in return is the privilege of keeping in touch with you. http://www.benallfree.com/ebook What do I love right now? What should you be looking at to build your next project? Glad you asked! My clients and I love Laravel, Ruby on Rails (RoR), Ionic, Django, AngularJS, Bootstrap, mobile hybrid apps, iOS, Android, PHP, Symfony, jQuery, JavaScript, HTML, mySQL, video, Facebook API, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Andruino, Twitter API, Single Page Applications (SPA), Auth0 (Hosted Identity Management), Composer, Bower, Node and NodeJS, grunt, SASS or SCSS, and much more!
