Senior PHP/Javascript/SQL Developer

Australia - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

Over the last 12 years I've worked with PHP, MySQL/PostgreSQL/MSSQL, JavaScript, HTML/CSS and related web technologies to create a large number of websites and web applications. I've worked for a number of startups and for a large listed company. My strength is the knowledge I have of what the web application stack is capable of, how interacts with the underlying server software/hardware and browser. This insight allows me to build robust, sophisticated and fast software. Most recently I have been building thick client side applications using Backbone.js and Require.js. I believe that the future of consumer software is going to be dominated by this type of software stack. It gives me great pleasure to be building the future right now. I also have excellent Ubuntu/Debian/CentOS Linux administration skills and have managed a large number of different servers. If you're after a serious and capable programmer then look no further.

WEB programmer for your crazy ideas

Lithuania - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 3

I am a senior web programmer offering website development services that include full website development, custom JS programming, design, linux server configuration, SEO and more. For best results, please challenge me with something new to create from the ground up. I'm highly motivated by modern design. For example, why require unnecessary server interactions when the browser can process WEB services via AJAX only when required? Efficient modern software architecture is both elegant and practical: apps run faster.

Lifetime Internet Guru

United States - Last active: 4 days ago

Well before the World Wide Web was a common phrase as it is today, before most people even owned a home computer I was programming code in a variety of languages for a variety of network related projects back when you had to put the handset of a telephone on a 300 baud modem. Trillions of lines of code under my belt and a mind that functions like a computer processing unit I not only understand today's most popular programming languages, I know how the languages themselves came to be. I am an expert who has owned, operated or worked with thousands of technology based businesses over the past 25 years. More than a programmer, I am a valuable consultant to any business wishing to build or improve any online enterprise. My work is relatively fast, accurate, functional and most importantly well constructed based on your exact needs. I do all of my own work but will bring in experts if necessary to accomplish the goals of your organization. I am an American living in Pennsylvania.
