Sick of crappy workers with poor communication skills from poor countries? I'm the solution. My portfolio, work history and feedback/comments will tell you what you need to know - that I'll get the job done and be easy to work with. I do work in two different areas so please check the relevant section. --- Ruby/Rails Programming I am a part-time startup programmer. I work with and am comfortable using the following tools: - Ruby/Rails (including all the common gems like Devise, RSpec/Cucumber/Selenium etc.) - HTML + CSS + JS - Git and Github - Heroku - AWS - Mandrill - Most similar and related web programming tools and services --- Bitcoin + Cryptocurrency I am a crypto currency enthusiast that owns, follows, trades, buys and sells Bitcoin. I am heavily involved in the cryptocurrency movement and offer my experience and insight in the form of freelance journalism. Some examples can be found in my portfolio.
I am passionate about solving problems by writing robust software applications for the iOS platform. As an engineer I believe in clean code, written by following best practices. As a private contractor I value professionalism and integrity. Over the past years, I have been working with a wide range of frameworks including Apple's Core Data, Map Kit, Social, Event Kit, Message UI, Accounts, Address Book, Core Graphics, UIKit and 3rd party libraries such as AFNetworking, Parse SDK, StackMob SDK and many more. I really enjoy working with technologies such as Core Data, in a client-server architecture. I also have experience with the Ruby programming language, the Rails framework and the Sinatra DSL, where I can deliver full stack RESTful interfaces for your projects. I am seeking opportunities to build apps for the iPhone and the iPad from the ground up or to improve an existing project.
I'm an experienced developer, mostly working with Ruby. Currently I'm looking forward work on small/medium size projects to apply my techniques based on agile development and the know-how I got in the past years.
My website is available at http://www.rehanjaffer.com/ for some idea of what I do in my spare time, programming-wise. As a child I aspired to be an inventor. Lego blocks, circuits, anything I could get my hands on, I'd experiment with and learn what I could do with it. I dreamed of a day when I would be able to build a robot myself. Programming was been the first practical realisation of that aspiration, as it allowed innovation and creation, the ability to dream or envision a website or application and turn it into reality. With the right set of tools, an idea can be brought to life. As a result of what some might call 'obsessive traits' my knowledge is quite diverse and in many cases the interests merge. My own deeper studying of psychology aids in eCommerce development and design by understanding the need, where possible, for empirical testing, along with being able to apply standard human behaviour (i.e less clicks to purchase leading to a greater chance of buying). It has also lead me to understand my own blind-spots and where to compensate for them in programming. An example of this would be the confirmation bias experiment where participants were asked to identify the next number in a sequence and work out the rule. The sequence they were given was 2, 4, 6. Most correctly guessed the next number would be 8, but incorrectly guessed that the rule was "adding 2 to each new number", when in fact it was simply "any set of ascending numbers". The failure to test alternative hypotheses was confirmed in other similar experiments, and there are practical applications of this in unit testing. A simple example being testing the cases that should work, and not testing cases that shouldn't, something far too common. In development, this has resulted in me specialising in a few key areas (specifically Rails and Ruby) while also understanding the full stack from servers down to interpreter internals. I'm able to write code in most major languages, but to truly know a language requires learning the idioms, experiences with common issues and bottlenecks, and knowing the best practices.
I am Senior Ruby on Rails developer with 3 years experience. I am good at ruby programming and rails backend and have agile programming methodology like BDD and TDD. Key skills: * Ability to code ruby script fluently. * Ability to use a lot of gems such as devise, ActiveMerchant and Spree e-commerce frame work, Refinery CMS framework and Redmine plugin development. * Ability to connect Mysql, postgresql and noSql like mongoDB to rails backend * Ability to integrate payment gateways like Stripe, Paypal and Braintree. * Ability to develop frontend and integrate html/css, js, jquery, haml to rails * Ability to deploy rails app to Heroku and auto-deploy by using capistrano * Ability to google to solve any problem * Ability to work in virtual team fluently and safely
Over past 6 years I have been gaining experience in backend web development learning PHP and Ruby, while contributing to numerous client and open-source projects, including MediaWiki, API clients for various web applications, etc. My core strength is Ruby development and I always feel best developing web applications using this language I also have experience with: AJAX, jQuery, SVG, CSS3 and website testing. I have been working with some open-source projects, including phpBB and MediaWiki. * My github profile: http://github.com/Holek
I've carved a niche for myself in writing for clients that need someone who can not only write well for your company but also not be a pain to deal with. That is a winning combination, I've found. Rather than a text-producing robot churning out bland work, I offer you a person on the other end of the line who can disagree respectfully if he thinks things are going in the wrong direction and offer alternative solutions. I'll do my best to make sure that the money you've payed to me will make you more money.
So yeah, a little about me. I'm 26yo from Slovenia. I just finished my study (masters) with the official title Organization And Management Of Information Systems. I was creating webpages since I was like 12 years old (Notepad, FrontPage, Dreamweaver and what not), then I got into hacking with PHP and working first at SmartCom building internal applications for about a year and a half and then with the biggest Slovenian web agency Innovatif for about 2 years. Next I got into freelancing where I did a Mac app with Objective-C and many Ruby/Rails web apps. For the last 2 years I'm almost exclusively a Ruby developer. I'm also the organizer of Slovenia Ruby User Group. If you want to know more, please don't hesitate to contact me.
