20+ years expert SQL database designer preferring...

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 41

I am one of the top database design specialists on oDesk. My sophisticated hand-crafted database design will save your organization significant time and money. I am a serious professional with over 20 years of experience as a programmer and database specialist. My emphasis has been on creating elegant SQL database design integrated with user-friendly front-end software (desktop and web applications). I have worked mainly as a database designer, programmer and database administrator for bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and biomedical research applications. I also have extensive experience programming database-centric software (websites, web applications, desktop applications) for publishing, business, financial, personnel and other purposes. One of the things I enjoy most is creating database schemas which make sense for both programmers and non-programmers, designing with an eye toward flawless data integrity, maximum maintainability and optimal performance. I love crafting websites and web applications which perform with shocking speed. It makes for a better experience for users, developers and administrators. My expertly designed database systems - with well-written queries, intelligently chosen indices, and sensible caching strategies - can easily perform 10 to 100 times faster (using the same underlying hardware). My emphasis when working with clients is on their data and system usability, not specific trends or technologies. But in case you're wondering about some specifics, I strongly believe that the database data should be integrated with but also somewhat independent from a presentation/application layer. Data in the database should be easily accessible from one or many different applications built using one or multiple different technologies. Currently I favor PHP/JavaScript/HTML5 for web applications, RealBasic/Real Studio/Xojo for cross-platform applications [Mac OS X/Windows/Linux], Xcode for Mac OS X-only/iOS applications, Visual Studio for Windows desktop applications. I prefer using MySQL for back-end RDBMS, but I also use Oracle, Microsoft MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL and SQLite on a regular basis. If your data and information organization is already in great shape, and if you are satisfied with how your database-integrated software and website performs, then you probably don't need a high-end expert like me. I can make routine modifications, add to well-crafted existing systems, etc. But so can many other people. But if you're just getting started on a new system that you want done right, or if you suspect your database website programming strategy needs an overhaul, then I can get you on the right track in a short amount of time. * * * * * * * * Let me mention a few of the client-friendly policies and practices I apply with all my clients. I don't do these things to distinguish myself from other contractors. (I would hope they all do the same.) I do these simply because this is how I would want to be treated if I was the client: - I work for zero up-front payment; you can pay me when I'm done. - With fixed-rate contracts, if you don't love what I do for you, you don't need to pay for it. - You don't need to have your own web servers; I can host development and/or live production work on my own high-capacity servers. - I don't mind working on a client's servers, or doing dev work on my servers and transfering finished work to client's servers. - I do not charge clients for hosting their websites or software systems, or for moving their websites or software systems elsewhere. - I provide clients with root log-in access to all the work I do for them; you are welcome to log into the server (cPanel, FTP, and phpMyAdmin) at any time and copy or back-up or move any work I do for you. - If I am working for you, all work product, all source code, all database design belongs to you. Always. Period. - I am happy to work with you and/or other programmers you enlist to work on a project; I am happy to pass off development work. - I do not provide mysterious "black box" solutions. I am happy to have you look under the hood at everything I do. You don't need to know anything at all about the inner workings of a system. Or you're welcome to ask about the most intricate details. - If we're developing a system from scratch, I prefer to do so using very widely-available technologies (PHP/MySQL/JavaScript/HTML5) which you can hire countless other people to work on if you decide to have other developers work on your system. - Do not be embarrassed to ask ANY question! I enjoy working with clients who have zero technical know-how in programming/databases/etc., partially because I appreciate their expertise in OTHER fields (real estate, art, medicine, law, science, civics, etc.) If you already know everything about databases and programming you probably wouldn't need me, would you?

VB Excel / Access Specialist

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6

I am a power Excel and Access programmer, specializing in creative solutions for database creation, mining, and analysis. I use VB extensively to create easy "Windows" type interfaces that allow users to interact with the data, without the need to know all the technical ins and outs of the underlying relationships. I *enjoy* programming. Its more like relaxation than work to me. Its similar to how some people might enjoy putting together jigsaw puzzles or crossword puzzles. oDesk employers have greatly varying problems they want solved, and coming up with those solutions is exciting and addictive (and the money is nice too!) Examples of past work include: a "Gamified" HR training program which encourages trainees to study and take quizzes through social interaction, leaderboards, badges, etc.; a parts ordering database with photos, employee descriptions and technical vendor descriptions, linked for automatic quotations to the appropriate vendor, and including current and historical purchase order transaction details and summary reports.

Project Manager and Joomla CMS developer

Sri Lanka - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 9

I build websites on Joomla! CMS, I build teams to develop websites and web applications, and I project manage those teams throughout the development cycle. I have a MSc in Computer Science, a bachelors degree in Law, both from London (UK) universities, and over 15 years of industry experience. I have worked at management level for several large companies and public sector organizations in London, UK. I now specialize in web project management (web sites and web application development), and developing and maintaining sites built on the Joomla! CMS platform. I am focusing on Joomla! because, after many years of CMS development with open source and enterprise software, I believe it is one of the most robust, scalable and extensible CMS available right now, open source or otherwise. It satisfies the requirement of 90% of websites that clients seek to build, namely, an attractively designed and user friendly front-end connected to a database, and the site and content easily administered via a back-end application. I think Joomla! provides the most cost-effective solution to this requirement. Previously, I have worked as a Web Project Manager, Web Developer, Web Designer, Web Master, Help-desk support, and even as an office/finance manager for a barristers' chambers. I am on LinkedIn if you wish to see more recommendations on my work: http://www.linkedin.com/in/chamiraathauda The following is a summary of my knowledge, experience and industry exposure: Project management and line management ------------------------------------------------------------------ ► Project management - I have experience utilizing elements of Prince 2 methodology. I have a good understanding of Agile, Kanban, and other software development methodologies. ► Team management - I have managed software development, content development, and IT support teams of between 5 to 10 members. ► Office and Finance management - I have managed a chambers of 50 plus barristers and supporting staff as a Chambers administrator. IT experience ------------------------------------------------------------------ ► Content Management Systems - I have configured and developed on a variety of CMSs, both enterprise and open source: FatWire, Webridge, Joomla!, Squiz Matrix, and Wordpress. ► CMS content migration - I have experience in developing content inventories, content review processes, and migration methodologies. I also have experience of evaluating and implementing software-based content migration processes. ► Information architecture - I have developed navigation and meta-data taxonomies. ► Programming and scripting - I can program/script in the following languages: HTML XML/XPath/XSLT CSS JavaScript / jQuery framework PHP Ruby and Rails Java C++ MySQL. ► Databases - I am familiar with database design, normalization, and conceptual schema. ► Web accessibility (WCAG) and website usability - I have experience of utilizing assistive technologies and conducting usability testing. ► Front-end web design - I prefer to be platform agnostic and use open source, therefore I use GIMP, Inskspace and other open source application for design/mockups/wireframing. However, I can also use the following Adobe software packages: DreamWeaver, Flash (with ActionScript 2), PhotoShop, Illustrator. General skills ------------------------------------------------------------------ ► Online marketing - I have used a variety of software solutions for online marketing, web traffic analysis and advertising. ► Technical documentation and report writing. ► Feasibility studies and supplier evaluation.
