Australia - Last active: 04/20/2013 - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 8

My goal is to solve problems with code that I write. I am a competent and experienced developer, having employed both Ruby and C++ in projects that have, to date, generated 8 figures in revenue. I love to research new technologies and hack on code in my spare time. I am a crusader of the holy light of test-driven development; I test every single line of code that I can in as many ways as I can, both in Ruby and Javascript/CoffeeScript. Deploymentwise, I'm fluent with the Heroku platform (both Cedar and previous stacks) and I'm also able to set up a Linux server for conventional deployment using nginx/Apache along with Unicorn or Passenger as app servers. Relational, document and key/value databases and other technologies are also not a problem. In the end, I enjoy writing Ruby code. The primary reason for Ruby and Rails existing is developer happiness — happy programmers are productive programmers and productive programmers ship code.

[oDesk top 20] Experienced Web App Developer - Rub...

United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 12

My goal is a pragmatic one: I write great software the easiest way possible. Easiest doesn't necessarily mean fastest... it means pretty fast, with a very low bug count, easy to change, and to spec. I focus on solving business problems rather than building the "coolest toy ever" -- some people call that effectatious, but that's not really a word. In March of 2010, I was recognized by oDesk as one of their top web developers based on feedback scores. In February of 2011, I was interviewed by oDesk and was one of three "featured contractors." You can read their article here: http://www.odesk.com/w/jobs/contractor-case-study/johnathan_wright_ruby_on_rails_developer About my experience: I have worked on at least 7 enterprise-level applications in the medical, e-commerce, CMS, real estate and auction spaces. I have worked on probably a dozen smaller applications both for clients and personal use, and have released three open-source programs, all written in Ruby. I generally work in a language named Ruby, using Ruby on Rails, a software tool that facilitates getting top-quality websites built expeditiously. In the course of building websites, I often work with javascript and AJAX. My style of development could easily be described as Agile, XP or TDD. I try to keep up on other up-to-date patterns and tools. In addition to Ruby and javascript, I have worked with at least 4 other languages and two other web frameworks. In terms of seeing whether we will be a fit, here are a few things I look for in a project / client: - I require challenging projects and the technical freedom to solve your problems. - I thrive on projects where clients describe business problems and we work together to find a way to make mitigate or resolve them. (the opposite being a deck of screen shots... if you have a deck of screen shots, we probably are not a fit.) - When working with geographically-disparate teams, I prefer small, well-qualified development teams (from 1 to 3 developers, where at least one of the other two developers is very experienced.)  - I prefer to work on projects that clearly contribute business value to the organizations they support, rather than facebook apps, pet projects, or random experiments. Feel free to contact me with questions. Good luck on your project!
