Senior Drupal developer - EU (responsive sites, co...

Lithuania - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 9

My major interest is Drupal development and only Drupal development. I'm concentrated on the exact CMS as I believe that one can be a real professional in only one applied area. That's the reason why I deal with Drupal, HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP, MySQL, and Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign for more than 7 years in a row and do my best to meet the client's requirements. I have an eye on design as well coding skills coupled with broad knowledge of best modern UX practices, it makes a perfect combination for PSD to Drupal service taken to the next level in comparison to most other similar services out there. I do use Drupal at its best and utilize the power of template engines, Drupal hooks, and popular contributed modules to deliver the templates which are easy to use and maintain. All templates of mine come as Drupal field based solutions where you don't need to know even a bit of HTML to manage your content and its look and feel. It makes back-end management UI extremely user friendly and front-end output as bullet proof and predictable as provided PSD, only in HTML/CSS/JS flesh and Drupal blood. Also all templates are QA tested for cross browser compatibility (down to IE9), as well as retina and responsive readiness. Check out www.idealabs.eu for more details.

iOS Developer

United States - Last active: 03/05/2014 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

I'm an Apple guy. My focus is iOS applications - it's what I love, and by far my strongest skill set. I got my start in mobile by creating several indie apps for Palm OS. By the time iOS 3.0 was released, I had already started learning Objective C. In 2014, I was in Moscone Center cheering as Swift was unveiled to the world. I'm fairly familiar with it at this point, but am taking a conservative approach to implementation. The language is maturing fast and I expect to be writing Swift code for production soon. I'm active in my local developer community, and always looking to learn new things (Go, React Native, and so on). I currently work out of two coworking facilities: one in my hometown, Lancaster, and the other in Old City Philadelphia. I'm a huge fan of coworking and the communities that it creates and fosters. Lest you think I'm a mobile-only guy, I have extensive background in general software development. In the past, I've worked with .NET + Microsoft SQL/T-SQL, web front end technologies (HTML5/CSS3/JQuery/PHP), C/C++, and even assembly way back in the day. In the interest of becoming the best mobile developer possible, I've chosen to focus exclusively on iOS development for the time being. That said, I'm deeply fascinated by language fundamentals and 'good' programing practices, and I continue to invest heavily in learning new tech. I won't be iOS forever.

I have been developing cutting edge software for over twenty years. My experience has been centered around ultra high performance embedded systems as well as modern web design and programming. I have been intimately involved in every aspect of the development lifecycle, including: brainstorming, requirements capture, resource management, graphic design, programming, testing, deployment, even sales and marketing. All of my projects are extremely thorough. I am more driven by the quality of my work than I am by the hours I will bill.
