Apart from pixel perfect design aesthetics, in my work, I focus on design principles and User Centered Design process. I believe that humans by nature enjoy simple, and easy to use things, thus simple and clean design is my goal. I like to bring harmony and organize things in a proper order. I am experienced in many forms of design, however my current passion is to create beautiful interfaces and great experiences. I am a fast-learner and hard worker. I keep up with the latest design trends, and love to learn new things. I am interested in UX and Interaction design and constantly broaden my knowledge in those fields.
I would like to offer you my deep knowledge of servers hardware and software, which allows me to fine-tune servers according to their roles, and my ability to anticipate and solve problems in shortest time possible. No Windows please, Unices only, Linux preferrable. Lately my main point of interest has shifted to deploying and maintaining web projects in cloud environments. I am developing monitoring / management tool ( http://m-script.org ) and supporting existing installations, but I am very well familiar with all well known alternatives from both monitoring and cloud management side, so no problem to implement any of them. The point is, I know very well how it works. And how it doesn't, too :) I am interested in any system administration work, especially in cloud environments. The more challenging you setup is going to be, the better. Automated scalability, cross-clouds deployments, combination of traditional and dynamically scalable resources, DNS/Geo balancing - everything is possible, just let me know your needs.

-Data Modelling and Database Design Create database designs by performing needs / requirement analysis, creating a logical mode, and then implementing the physical model. -Backup and Recovery Making periodic backups of data and keeping it safe from accidental or intentional destruction. Testing recovery plans so that when problems do arise, data can be restored quickly. -Capacity Planning Watch data growth, and plan how best to deal with it. This may include archiving it, increasing the size of current hardware, or adding new hardware. -Change Management Server configurations, database schema change over time. Perform impact analysis before changes are made, implement changes, test changes, and document them. -High Availability Ensure high availability, including use of log shipping, clustering, database mirroring, and other technologies. -Monitoring Monitoring performance, monitoring server disk space, monitoring logs, ensuring jobs have run successfully, checking for errors, and so on. -Needs/Requirements Analysis Perform needs/requirements analysis. Talking to users, finding out their needs and requirements, and determining the best way to meet them. -Performance Tuning Monitor performance to determine ways to optimize database performance. -Report Writing Writing reports against databases in transact-SQL code to extract the data, or creation and formatting physical reports. -Security Control who can access data and what they can do with it. Creating SQL Server login IDs, database IDs, assigning permissions, moving security between servers. -Testing Testing servers, testing databases, testing applications, testing management tools, and so on.

For the last 10 years I worked as web developer and Unix systems administrator for private, public and ecclesiastical entities. I have a solid knowledge of modern web technologies, document digitization and Unix shell scripting. I'm currently focused on the Dart programming language. As a Dart early adopter, I'm a long time community contributor and my contributions include writing articles, open-source projects, speaking at conferences and presenting episodes on Google Developers Live. On my GitHub account you can see open source projects I'm currently working on: https://github.com/claudiodangelis
Early in 2014 I left a magazine staff position to pursue freelance writing and editing full-time. I love to explain things, which I've been doing professionally for 25 years, using words, pictures and drawings. In addition, I am a registered Professional Engineer. My experience includes design and construction, with both field and office assignments, as well as writing and editing numerous articles. I also developed the curriculum for an introductory class on Programmable Logic Controllers, subsequently revising it several times, and have taught that class on a continuing basis since 1997.
I'm a Finnish math PhD, Data Scientist/Quant and Python expert with expertise also in Matlab and Mathematica. I have around 10 years of experience in academia as a researcher, and a couple of years after that as a freelance consultant mathematician and coder. Here's my business page: http://www.quantmechanics.com/ Primarily I am skilled in the following mathematical programming subjects: - Time series analysis and modelling (parametric, nonparametric, multivariate) - Machine learning (e.g. Recurrent Neural Networks) - Optimization (LP, QP, Convex, Large Scale ML/TS problems) Other skills: SQL, financial modeling, data analysis, stochastics, stochastic PDEs, wavelets, monte carlo, regression analysis (linear, nonlinear, logistic), time series analysis, econometrics, VARMA etc., econophysics, nonlinear dynamics, portfolio theory, CAPM, factor models, GARCH, VaR, neural networks, backtesting, algorithmic trading Here's me at LinkedIn: http://fi.linkedin.com/pub/heikki-arponen/34/590/248/ Github: github.com/harpone List of publications: http://scholar.google.fi/citations?user=kFxXih0AAAAJ
During the last two decades, I have written or edited for top global companies such as Lockheed Martin, Philips Consumer Electronics, and Siemens Medical Solutions. I have also performed video script writing and voice-over for international power equipment company Husqvarna. For one contractor I had outside of ODesk, I traveled to interview or talked on the phone with subjects for profile articles and received some very favorable response from the subjects and the employer about the articles I produced. The contract, which lasted nearly two years, was a very fruitful association. I am an excellent editor and derive satisfaction from helping people sharpen their content. A challenge of editing is its subjective nature--all sorts of styles exist within the parameters of commonly accepted grammar guidelines. So, every editing job involves give and take between writer and editor, as well as a "meeting of the minds" in terms word usage, phrasing, and style. I enjoy working with authors to craft content that is clear and interesting and accomplishes their goals. I really appreciate ODesk because of its professionalism and the opportunity it offers to work with people involved in interesting projects all over the world.
