Web Programmer

United States - Last active: 01/17/2013 - Tests: 3

During the last two years, I have developed extensively using the Ruby on Rails framework, including internships at Due Props, with Rails 3 Way author Obie Fernandez, and Penguin Digital, recently acquired by Shutterfly. I am now a technical co-founder at VentureBoard, where I specialize in Rails development and enforcing good application and code structure. If you're looking for a contractor familiar with writing Ruby on Rails code that is not just effective, but maintainable, and who has had a wide variety of experiences familiarizing him with existing solutions to problems you likely have, then I'm a good candidate for you.

Experienced web developer of SaaS systems

United States - Last active: 09/27/2013 - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 8

I have over 15 years of software development experience on all types and sizes of projects for customers in the education, pharmaceutical, non-profit, defense, and commercial markets. My expertise is in web-based SaaS systems. Until 2010 I led a team of about 30 developers on a Microsoft ASP.NET SaaS system for the college/university space. Since early 2013 I worked writing automated QA integration tests for a Ruby on Rails app using Rspec and Capybara. (From 2010 to 2012 I took a break from software to attend music school. I'm currently a musician, and I support myself by doing software development.) I am currently looking to do more Rails automated QA testing, Rails development, or manual QA. I'm always open to other projects that meet my skill set, though.

Jared Hewitt

Systems Administrator and Engineer

United States - Last active: 01/17/2014 - Tests: 2

I am a Systems Administrator with over 10 years in the field. I took my first computer apart and successfully reassembled it at the age of 7. I was soon programming in BASIC shortly after. I decided to tackle Linux as a project at the age of 15. I am completely self taught and continue to keep myself current with the fast paced changes in technology. My curiosity and imagination are by far my best assets. I'm not content with simply knowing that something works, I am driven to understand how as well. This is why, when I had made up my mind to develop my first website, started by teaching myself how to set up the Apache web server first. Then I had to learn DNS, because I wasn't about to host my site without a resolvable domain name. I quickly moved on to teaching myself PHP and MySQL so that I could make my site dynamic. I got my foot in the door with the IT business at a small ISP named JAS Networks. It was here I learned about DSL service and networking. I moved on to provide general IT support for a small jewelry store named Pearlman's Jewelers. I eventually moved all of Pearlman's Jewelers' web based services locally in house by utilizing my contacts and networking experience to acquire a T1 line for the business. The website and email were then hosted from the building itself, saving the company hundreds of dollars a month. Eventually I moved on to Liquid Web, which at the time was a small web host ran by a crew of 15. I learned a lot at Liquid Web both in regards to systems administration and customer service. I was the first escalation technician Liquid Web ever had, due to my habit of singling out more difficult customer problems and correcting them. It wasn't long before Liquid Web wanted to start building their own custom solutions, at which point I was chosen by their newly appointed Engineering department lead, Mike Neir, to be one of the first two Engineers for the company. After several years of long service to the company, I finally moved on to S2 Games. I helped them build the necessary network services for their successful and award winning game Heroes of Newerth. I also developed several solutions catered to their needs. It was here that I began to first teach myself about continuous automation services such as Puppet and Chef. A necessity for the administration of the large number of machines they had hosted around the world. I served as the sole Systems Administrator and Systems Engineer for S2 for several years, and learned a lot during my time there. I also developed a large number of backup solutions, including one which allowed taking binary differential backups of a live database service without interrupting the service. Currently I do contract level work for a company in Lansing called Select Resources. I am working on site migrations and continuous automation solutions for their client Zondervan as the company as it moves forward into the future of cloud based hosting. Over the years I have picked up several skills to complete what I feel is a formidable arsenal when it comes to troubleshooting complex problems, setting up services, or automating the entire setup of datacenters full of machines from a bare metal state. I am also a skilled developer in C/C++, JAVA, Lua, bash, PERL, Ruby, PHP and Python. I am extremely familiar with website specific application development technologies such as HTML, Javascript, CSS and Websockets. I have done extensive work on developing web applications utilizing AJAX and even wrote my own AJAX library before more complete libraries like jQuery were developed and available. My current career goal is to simply learn more and continuously improve my skills. My friends would most likely describe me as being intelligent, with a kind and giving heart. I am proud of my accomplishments, yet humble enough to accept direction and leadership without complaint. I have often been called upon in my past jobs to provide IT consulting services in areas unrelated to what my current job was at the time.

Software Engineer, with focus on Continuous Integr...

Australia - Last active: 01/04/2014 - Tests: 3

After a few years of working as a software engineer, I developed an interest in the concept of code quality - and the ability to place better guarantees on the work coming out of the development team using automated unit testing. As an individual, I can demonstrate that my code is testable, and executes given functional requirements within certain parameters across different platforms and conditions. As a team, existing and introduced bugs can be readily identified and corrected much more efficiently, and ensure that corrected behaviour remains in place for future releases. When mixed with a bit of agile development exposure, I found myself in the world of TDD, BDD, Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment, not to mention the opportunity to use some cool technologies like TeamCity, Selenium, and even some physical red/green build lights. Commit/build issues that previously took a day or more to find could now be discovered and fixed much more efficiently, before the developer had moved on from the code, and before anyone else got a hold of the broken build! I believe that agile development methodologies, combined with continuous integration and testing strategies assisted us in achieving these goals. Well-defined functionality and architecture supported by a thorough testing framework, both automated and human-based, helps us to get high-quality products out the door.
