I am a freelance software developer providing web scraping services and data crawling using Python and Perl. Over the last 5 years, I have developed a wide range of software solutions to crawl and extract different types of data from a myriad of websites, e.g. real-time data, business listings, sports results data and other related data sources. My experience lies in automated web scraping with well defined specifications including website and output format. Website data delivered often are in standardised CSV or SQL formats and typically involves further post-processing of crawled data according to your requirements. Code is written in Python and Perl following agile and TDD software design techniques to ensure code longevity, reliability and robustness. I also have experience in mathematical languages Matlab, R, as well as databases SQL, MongoDB, Linux administration, and many web API's including Dropbox, Twitter, Twilio and Sendgrid. As well as web scraping, I am capable of completing similar web related projects using Python and Perl, for example, filtering log files, web monitoring, notification systems and backend web apps.

I'm an experienced WordPress developer (not a designer, though) specialized in developing custom themes and plugins for WordPress Version 3 and up. I'm also specialized in WooCommerce, when the client needs an e-commerce solution. I'm implementing themes from the underscores starter theme. I have a tool-set of different code collections ready, for example to implement custom post_types and custom fields, so my clients always benefit from my experience with other projects that I have done in the past. Coding style follows the WordPress guidelines, that means I use WordPress hooks and filters instead of hacking the core and I always try to make sure, the client can upgrade the WP core and all plugins without messing up the individual changes. Please contact me for WordPress related projects only.
