Ukraine - Last active: 21 hours ago - Tests: 19

Seeking opportunities in Perl oriented (Catalyst DBIC preferred) application development, shell and perl scripting, and BSD/Linux administration projects - to build sites and setup servers for your business or pleasure.In my mind, LAMP more often reads as LASP - Linux, Apache, (any|no)SQL, Perl - of course, with Catalyst, Template Toolkit and DBIx::Class/KiokuDB in pair with some RCS (git is preferred, but subversion, mercurial and others also possible). And of course, all can be integrated with AJAX libraries such as jQuery, Prototype, MooTools and other to create Web2.0 apptications.Great knowledge of regular expressions (regexp). Have real experience with MySql, Postgres, Oracle, CouchDB, LDAP, also worked with CPanel, Plesk and Ensim. And of course, have experience with Apache, SMTP (exim, postfix, sendmail), IMAP/POP (Cyrus, UW, Dovecot), firewalls (bsd/ipfw and linux/iptables), Samba and misc ftp and proxy solutions.I can work well as alone and as a team member.

Well before the World Wide Web was a common phrase as it is today, before most people even owned a home computer I was programming code in a variety of languages for a variety of network related projects back when you had to put the handset of a telephone on a 300 baud modem. Trillions of lines of code under my belt and a mind that functions like a computer processing unit I not only understand today's most popular programming languages, I know how the languages themselves came to be. I am an expert who has owned, operated or worked with thousands of technology based businesses over the past 25 years. More than a programmer, I am a valuable consultant to any business wishing to build or improve any online enterprise. My work is relatively fast, accurate, functional and most importantly well constructed based on your exact needs. I do all of my own work but will bring in experts if necessary to accomplish the goals of your organization. I am an American living in Pennsylvania.
