Rails Dev With Diverse Skill Set

United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 5

Hey, what's up? Thank you for reviewing my profile, I'm glad you stopped by! My name is Dave and here's the skill set I can bring to your project or team: Ruby on Rails Development - Experience with Heroku, Postgres, Devise, Pundit, Paperclip, Geocoder, etc. Front End Development - Bootstrap, Sass, Less, and a little bit of AngularJS Graphic Development and Retouching - 11+ years of Photoshop experience with an extensive focus on photo retouching, complex compositing, and stylized post production. Other Cool Stuff - Audio engineering, video editing / post production, marketing, and I'm a damn fine party planner! But wait, there's more! I also speak fluent English, am on EST time, and according to the Dali Llama, on my death bed I'll achieve total consciousness, so I got that going for me. On a serious note, I am looking primarily for ongoing rails positions that will challenge me and expand my knowledge. I also know that being able to fill some gaps when needed can be a huge benefit. I am happy to jump in and be of help in a range of areas outside of web development if needed, such as marketing and content creation. Finally, and as I would expect from anyone in web development in this day and age, I am very familiar with Wordpress and able to assist with just about anything a project could require. I would love to chat with you more about your thing / project / hopes and dreams / and the like... So please hit me up with a message and let's do lunch. Thanks again and talk soon!

For a prettier format of my profile, please see my website: http://redningja.com . I will tackle any Ruby tasks that you need. I can write anything from small Ruby scripts to full-blown Web applications. I'm very friendly, easy to talk to, and easy to work with. Whether you are technical or not, I talk in plain English with no jargon so that you know exactly what's going on and how things work. I don't just work FOR you, but WITH you. My code is clean, readable, and regularly refactored. TESTING IS A HIGH PRIORITY IN MY WORK, NOT AN AFTERTHOUGHT. I WILL WORK FOR A LOWER RATE FOR GOOD CAUSES. Efficient and Easy for You For web applications, I use Heroku, a service that allows me to quickly give you a product in a working state so you can immediately interact with it. No work needed on your end. I just give you a web address, and you see results in seconds. Knowledgeable I regularly follow Ruby news and attend conferences, so you can be confident that I am keeping up with technology. Flexibility I can work any day of the week at any reasonable hour of the day. I've had clients across the globe and have had no problems making myself available at a time that is convenient for them. I respond to emails quickly and give plenty of warning if I will not be available. Why Testing Matters There is no such thing as bug-free code. If you were an online bank, how confident are you that every transaction is working like it is designed to? Can you afford to have a bug? With automated tests, you have code that verifies your application is working as expected. Most good programmers nowadays are thoroughly testing their code. It helps with development, and it helps when things go wrong like many things eventually do. Tests will also help you make sure that fixing a bug here won't cause another bug way over there. Not having automated tests makes development SEVERAL TIMES slower, costing more money and more headache. Frameworks, gems, tools, etc. that I use: Ruby on Rails Sinatra Padrino HAML/SASS JavaScript CoffeeScript jQuery Prototyp/Scriptaculous TestUnit RSpec MiniTest Jasmine Capybara Machinist Spork Selenium Formtastic Nokogiri HTTParty Bundler RVM MySQL PostgreSQL MongoDB ActiveRecord Mongoid Devise OmniAuth Heroku Amazon S3 Spreedly
