Professional and hobbyist developer, with over 15 years of actual development under the belt and 6 years in 'hands-on' management positions (as engagement manager in a consulting firm and then as a CTO in a web startup). My technical experience ranges from desktop (C/C++/C#/Java/VB, scripting in Python/Ruby/VBA), embedded (PIC, ATMEGA, ARM), web (PHP, Ruby on Rails, JS/Coffeescript, HTML5 and some understanding of web design principles and UX construction) and ERP/Business Intelligence (SAP BW, QlickView). These days (2014), I am mostly doing web dev (front-end/back-end) in Ruby, Python and CoffeeScript - they allow very quick iterations and cutting through tons of boilerplate to get to a MVP as quickly as possible. My skills in C/C++ are a bit rusty, but I'll gladly dust them off for an interesting project :) I read Java and C# and don't mind using them as external dependencies, but I do not enjoy working with those. As for my management experience, I have been leading small and large engagements (up to 2 millions EUR) in offshore settings (India, China), both on-site and remotely I feel like I have a good understanding of the communication and management challenges involved in freelancing. As your contractor, I see myself adding value by challenging your requirements, helping you define clear specifications and, if the assignment is large enough to need more than myself as a developer, I can help you screen out other offshore resources and simplify your outsourcing experience.

Look no further for an MS Access expert. I'll quickly understand your needs and deliver a powerful, intuitive solution. Stuck on a frustrating problem? I'll fix it--just read my reviews! Sure, those $12/hour offshore programmers are tempting, but we all know: you get what you pay for. I'll complete your project quickly and efficiently, and I'll still be here in 6 months--or 2 years--when you need a minor update. I've developed several enterprise Access solutions from customer specifications, converted and enhanced legacy systems, and written feature-rich, complex reports. In 15 years of experience, there is very little I have not done in Access! VBA, query writing, complex reports, interface design, import/export, interoperability: bring it on. Have you seen my Odesk test scores and reviews? Customers love working with me because I quickly understand their needs, and I speak to them in plain English instead of dazzling them with techno-babble. In my career I've linked MS Access to several ODBC back-ends, including health data systems, and of course every version of SQL. Shortly after Access 2007 was released, I was the first person to notify Microsoft of two bugs. I had to devise my own clever workaround until they released SP1. I look forward to speaking with you (from my U.S. landline telephone, or Skype...my name with a dot between) soon. Thanks, Jules
I have been writing systems in various forms of Basic since 1983 the first 3 years were full time after which I moved into IT Management both general and Project. In the last 8 years I have resumed my programming activities culminating in the design and build of a full ERP system incorporating the MS Office engines for Word, Excel, and Outlook with MS Access for databases and running on the Windows platform. This is fully scaleable from a laptop to a multi location, multi organisation network. Since working with Odesk I have been doing projects to provide applications in Access and Outlook and have Project Managed a Web 2.0 build for an English University and have been recognised as one of the top 25 software providers on Odesk for July based on feedback. Outside Odesk I work as a freelance programmer, analyst, project manager, or business consultant depending on needs. I have opened two businesses and run them for 10 years and assisted in launching several others including management buyout's. I am a lateral thinker with a great breadth of industry knowledge that can be brought to bear on any systems design and build. With extensive skills in Project Management and Business Process Reengineering I am able to work in many disciplines. Gaining an MBA in March 2010 I am skilled in organisational structure and change supported by IT systems change, having an academic paper published in International Journal of Business, Management, and Social Sciences titled 'Why Information Technology (IT) systems-led organisational Change does not work' see -www.gbmintl.com/research This portfolio of skills gives me considerable knowledge of business processes and roles in many and varied industry sectors that I can bring to bear through a highly empathic approach which means I can offer advice and suggestions where improvement or a better approach can be deployed. During the last 10 years most of the programming work I have been contracted for involves building Apps or Addins for MS Outlook and Exchange, MS Access and Excel conversions and upgrades and also moves to MySQL or SQL Server Despite all of these skills, in this case I am principally looking for Visual Basic Programming or Office Integration work, Windows API work and document management within any business structure or system. Please note: I do NOT do fixed price work in Odesk
