I am one of the top database design specialists on oDesk. My sophisticated hand-crafted database design will save your organization significant time and money. I am a serious professional with over 20 years of experience as a programmer and database specialist. My emphasis has been on creating elegant SQL database design integrated with user-friendly front-end software (desktop and web applications). I have worked mainly as a database designer, programmer and database administrator for bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and biomedical research applications. I also have extensive experience programming database-centric software (websites, web applications, desktop applications) for publishing, business, financial, personnel and other purposes. One of the things I enjoy most is creating database schemas which make sense for both programmers and non-programmers, designing with an eye toward flawless data integrity, maximum maintainability and optimal performance. I love crafting websites and web applications which perform with shocking speed. It makes for a better experience for users, developers and administrators. My expertly designed database systems - with well-written queries, intelligently chosen indices, and sensible caching strategies - can easily perform 10 to 100 times faster (using the same underlying hardware). My emphasis when working with clients is on their data and system usability, not specific trends or technologies. But in case you're wondering about some specifics, I strongly believe that the database data should be integrated with but also somewhat independent from a presentation/application layer. Data in the database should be easily accessible from one or many different applications built using one or multiple different technologies. Currently I favor PHP/JavaScript/HTML5 for web applications, RealBasic/Real Studio/Xojo for cross-platform applications [Mac OS X/Windows/Linux], Xcode for Mac OS X-only/iOS applications, Visual Studio for Windows desktop applications. I prefer using MySQL for back-end RDBMS, but I also use Oracle, Microsoft MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL and SQLite on a regular basis. If your data and information organization is already in great shape, and if you are satisfied with how your database-integrated software and website performs, then you probably don't need a high-end expert like me. I can make routine modifications, add to well-crafted existing systems, etc. But so can many other people. But if you're just getting started on a new system that you want done right, or if you suspect your database website programming strategy needs an overhaul, then I can get you on the right track in a short amount of time. * * * * * * * * Let me mention a few of the client-friendly policies and practices I apply with all my clients. I don't do these things to distinguish myself from other contractors. (I would hope they all do the same.) I do these simply because this is how I would want to be treated if I was the client: - I work for zero up-front payment; you can pay me when I'm done. - With fixed-rate contracts, if you don't love what I do for you, you don't need to pay for it. - You don't need to have your own web servers; I can host development and/or live production work on my own high-capacity servers. - I don't mind working on a client's servers, or doing dev work on my servers and transfering finished work to client's servers. - I do not charge clients for hosting their websites or software systems, or for moving their websites or software systems elsewhere. - I provide clients with root log-in access to all the work I do for them; you are welcome to log into the server (cPanel, FTP, and phpMyAdmin) at any time and copy or back-up or move any work I do for you. - If I am working for you, all work product, all source code, all database design belongs to you. Always. Period. - I am happy to work with you and/or other programmers you enlist to work on a project; I am happy to pass off development work. - I do not provide mysterious "black box" solutions. I am happy to have you look under the hood at everything I do. You don't need to know anything at all about the inner workings of a system. Or you're welcome to ask about the most intricate details. - If we're developing a system from scratch, I prefer to do so using very widely-available technologies (PHP/MySQL/JavaScript/HTML5) which you can hire countless other people to work on if you decide to have other developers work on your system. - Do not be embarrassed to ask ANY question! I enjoy working with clients who have zero technical know-how in programming/databases/etc., partially because I appreciate their expertise in OTHER fields (real estate, art, medicine, law, science, civics, etc.) If you already know everything about databases and programming you probably wouldn't need me, would you?

Software developer

Norway - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 1

I became fascinated with computers from an early age. At age 13 I started breaking down the software other people had made. I experimented and basically taught myself the mind of computers. I am autodidact in Basic, Turbo Pascal, Delphi. I am familiar with SQL. As for my computer-skills, I have myself developed some of the worlds fastest routines for managing vast amounts of data... I don't think I should go into the subject of all the software I have used and can use on a professional level (you would be stuck here reading for a very long time). I am in addition basically bilingual. Maybe this can be put to work for you. I really enjoy working with different languages.. Translating and transcribing is not only fun, I still come across a few words that I don't know, and that is the fun part of researching and learning.. I can translate these languages in a professional manner: English, Danish and Swedish ---> Norwegian Norwegian, Danish and Swedish ---> English Norwegian, English and Swedish ---> Danish For short texts, I also offer translation like: Norwegian, Danish and English ---> Swedish. German ---> Norwegian, Danish, English and Swedish. I can offer transcription of Norwegian, English and Swedish audiofiles. I would also love to do some German transcription for personal learning purposes.. My german understanding of the spoken language is not bad. (When the Danes start speaking properly, then I can do their language also :D, for now, it is too time-consuming for me.) Phew. That was a lot about language... Where did it all start you might wonder... Well.. It helps being told that you can not do it. (Don't listen to that you parents out there. Recognise your childrens values. Encourage them!) Apart from that, it does help to be stubborn! and travel around a bit is not bad either. Being a software developer is what I really want for my future. Challenges will come my way and I will do whatever I can to meet those challenges in a professional manner. Many old programmers or those taught a language at school see problems and a box they are stuck in. In school I was the one teaching my teachers. I was the one thinking outside the box to get things done. I can be stubborn some times, but in my mind, nothing is impossible. The impossible only takes a little bit longer time. I wish to put my skills into good use and I hope that will be something for you.

Senior web developer

United States - Last active: 10/25/2013 - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 5

Over the last 15 years, I have developed a wide range of websites using HMTL, CSS, PHP, and MySQL including sites for startup companies and small corporations. My core competency lies in complete end-end management of a new website development projects, and I am seeking opportunities to build websites from the ground up for you or your business. I am overly competent in database management and have superior knowledge of internet security from experiences from both ends of the spectrum, I have been a hacker in the past and now use this knowledge to better my penetration testing skills.I have many tools that I use to offer clients that guaranteed the most in depth penetration test of their websites. I charge $125.00 for the test, along with a very in-depth compliance report that will explain all vulnerabilities found to you the client. When you hire me for just programming, not only can you rest assured that you will automatically get a secured script and you will not have to worry about sql, xss and csrf vulnerabilities from any part of the scripts that I write. Security is my main focus when writing a script! I have skills in jquery animation, animations with new technology such as adobe edge currently in prototype stage (which will most likely deprecate flash), I have worked on almost every type of website there is from database driven cms, to static html, from real estate websites to javascript driven penny auctions, I have created gaming websites such as knightcrusaders.com, and I also offer server tuning for those who have dedicated servers and find that their websites are just moving to slow, I can optimize queries, tune mysql and php. Again I do have have over 15 years of experience so if there is something I have not listed feel free to ask and I will let you know if I have the ability to do it! I have taken several of the odesk test in order to ensure the client that I do know what I am talking about, I am in top 20% in a few categories which is by far not an easy accomplishment.
