Professional and hobbyist developer, with over 15 years of actual development under the belt and 6 years in 'hands-on' management positions (as engagement manager in a consulting firm and then as a CTO in a web startup). My technical experience ranges from desktop (C/C++/C#/Java/VB, scripting in Python/Ruby/VBA), embedded (PIC, ATMEGA, ARM), web (PHP, Ruby on Rails, JS/Coffeescript, HTML5 and some understanding of web design principles and UX construction) and ERP/Business Intelligence (SAP BW, QlickView). These days (2014), I am mostly doing web dev (front-end/back-end) in Ruby, Python and CoffeeScript - they allow very quick iterations and cutting through tons of boilerplate to get to a MVP as quickly as possible. My skills in C/C++ are a bit rusty, but I'll gladly dust them off for an interesting project :) I read Java and C# and don't mind using them as external dependencies, but I do not enjoy working with those. As for my management experience, I have been leading small and large engagements (up to 2 millions EUR) in offshore settings (India, China), both on-site and remotely I feel like I have a good understanding of the communication and management challenges involved in freelancing. As your contractor, I see myself adding value by challenging your requirements, helping you define clear specifications and, if the assignment is large enough to need more than myself as a developer, I can help you screen out other offshore resources and simplify your outsourcing experience.

Look no further for an MS Access expert. I'll quickly understand your needs and deliver a powerful, intuitive solution. Stuck on a frustrating problem? I'll fix it--just read my reviews! Sure, those $12/hour offshore programmers are tempting, but we all know: you get what you pay for. I'll complete your project quickly and efficiently, and I'll still be here in 6 months--or 2 years--when you need a minor update. I've developed several enterprise Access solutions from customer specifications, converted and enhanced legacy systems, and written feature-rich, complex reports. In 15 years of experience, there is very little I have not done in Access! VBA, query writing, complex reports, interface design, import/export, interoperability: bring it on. Have you seen my Odesk test scores and reviews? Customers love working with me because I quickly understand their needs, and I speak to them in plain English instead of dazzling them with techno-babble. In my career I've linked MS Access to several ODBC back-ends, including health data systems, and of course every version of SQL. Shortly after Access 2007 was released, I was the first person to notify Microsoft of two bugs. I had to devise my own clever workaround until they released SP1. I look forward to speaking with you (from my U.S. landline telephone, or Skype...my name with a dot between) soon. Thanks, Jules

I have over 30 years experience working on projects including the Turtle Talk show, Enchanted Art Paintings, and Spaceship Earth remodel for Disney, major projects for Tribune Corporation, including implementing an automated intranet AdMARC reporting system, and developing and consulting on custom apps, websites, and applications, in all major programming languages and operating systems. I have a proven track record of solving difficult problems and am the "go to" person for difficult hardware/software tasks. My motto has always been that if you can think it, I can do it. I have a background in electronics and can also create custom circuitry, and the software to run it. From creating time-saving innovative solutions, to fixing thousand dollar computers with a 22 cent part, I am passionate about serving your software and hardware needs, and can get your project or prototype done ahead of time, below budget, with better results. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your project needs or if you'd just like to chat and find out more about me. Thank you!
Since 1998 I have developed dozens of web applications focusing on a wide-range of industries including custom search engines, affiliate marketing, real estate solutions and worker safety. As an autodidact, I pride myself on learning new technologies and continually improving my skill-set. As a freelancer, I believe in professionalism, clean code and representing my craft to the highest degree possible. On the server-side, Laravel is my current PHP framework of choice, although I am comfortable working with Zend, CodeIgniter, Cake and Yii. For the database layer, I have 14 years of experience with MySQL. On the client-side, I prefer jQuery, Backbone and Twitter Bootstrap. Although I am not a graphic designer, I know my way around the Adobe software suite. I write standard compliant HTML5 and CSS3. I have an eye for useable, clean and obvious functionality. I have experience with many APIs, including Amazon, Box.net, Infusionsoft, Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, eWay, Authorize.net and Google. I can write APIs from scratch and give your application a RESTful interface. I am seeking opportunities to build custom web applications from the ground up or taking an existing code base and improving upon it.
