I've worked closely with world-class companies throughout the development of outstanding platforms that have been used by thousands. I'm proficient with PHP and I'm also a Laravel early-adopter - I've been using it since early version 3. I've developed countless applications with Laravel, attended the Laracon conference in Amsterdam and I've written several tutorials that have helped hundreds of other developers. In addition to PHP, I've also used Ruby on Rails extensively to develop complex web applications with full featured test suites. Being a Software Engineering student, you'll be sure to get solutions that are well designed, easy to scale and develop upon. I've taken a CAE (Certificate in Advanced English) by the University of Cambridge and passed with flying colours. Communicating with me won't definitely be an issue. Looking forward to working with you on your next web app!

I would like to offer you my deep knowledge of servers hardware and software, which allows me to fine-tune servers according to their roles, and my ability to anticipate and solve problems in shortest time possible. No Windows please, Unices only, Linux preferrable. Lately my main point of interest has shifted to deploying and maintaining web projects in cloud environments. I am developing monitoring / management tool ( http://m-script.org ) and supporting existing installations, but I am very well familiar with all well known alternatives from both monitoring and cloud management side, so no problem to implement any of them. The point is, I know very well how it works. And how it doesn't, too :) I am interested in any system administration work, especially in cloud environments. The more challenging you setup is going to be, the better. Automated scalability, cross-clouds deployments, combination of traditional and dynamically scalable resources, DNS/Geo balancing - everything is possible, just let me know your needs.
