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.

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.
Over the last 14 years, I have managed a wide range of networks based on Cisco, Juniper, Arbor, Checkpoint, Huawei, D-Link and other equipment. My strongest experiences are security and multicast. I have experience in programming Perl, Ruby, Bash. Excellent troubleshooting skill. I also have some experience in Russian-English, English-Russian translation.
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.
