I'm a full time developer and have been working on a variety of different projects for the past 6 years mainly involving Social Media, E-commerce & Facebook Marketing applications. I'm interested in Web & Facebook applications whether they require building from scratch or need some maintenance & enhancements. My main development skills are in Java, J2EE, LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) and the Yii Framework. I also have good linux/unix administration skills (including shell scripting). Furthermore I can also implement front end designs using HTML, CSS, Java scipt and Ajax. I have great experience with APIs such as Facebook, Flickr, Bebo and Twitter and I have even built an OAuth API for a previous client.
I have spent the last 10 years in development and deployment of large distributed web based systems using agile methodologies working closely with the customer using best practices of distributed agile. I have also worked on automation/maintenance of Infrastructure using tools like Chef and Puppet. I love developing in Ruby and have been using ruby based frameworks since 2006. I believe in crafting highly maintainable code using TDD/ATDD.
Hello there and thanks for reading my profile so far. For the last 3 years working in web-design i did wide range of different WordPress, PSD to HTML, XHTML, CSS, PHP, PHOTOSHOP and SEO projects. The core of my services is to provide the qualitative result - which I proud of. So all the things provided by myself are highly skilled and professionaly made. Quality is a MUST condition. Since I'm INDEPENDENT contractor my work hours are flexible and i'm working in the hours that intersect with client's schedule. Communication is a important key during the work process, and the work result directly depends on it. That is why i prefer to discuss and have all project attributes, including project specification (at least clean brief overview), skype, e-mail and for sure - oDesk correspondence. Looking forward to build strong and productive partnership with you. Cheers, Dmitry
