Flash, Flex, Actionscript, Mobile (Android/IOS), E...

United Kingdom - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10

I have always enjoyed computer programming, and I first started with Perl-CGI, C, HTML, CSS and Javascript in a Linux environment. I have worked on a wide range of projects, and in recent years I have become a Flash specialist. I regularly create Android and IOS applications in addition to online and desktop applications. I have experience of game design, and I am confident that I could contribute to the creative design process. You can see my own demonstration games at www.orientalfudge.co.uk. I have also worked on a series of multi-player games for a client using the XIFF/Jabber chat server. I can program Actionscript 3 both as a script and as OOP. I find Flash CS6 particularly advantageous for fast prototyping and creating GUIs that can be modified easily while making minimal changes to the code. Flash CS6 is also an excellent platform for teaching computer programming. I can also program in Adobe Flex using Flash Builder 4.6. In 2008-2009 I decided to embark on a teacher training course. I value the flexibility offered by this profession and at the time of writing I am involved in creating video lessons for programming in Actionscript. I would welcome the opportunity to get involved in online/virtual teaching in addition to software development opportunities. --- Information about using Adobe AIR to create Android and IOS apps: 1. Myth: Apple doesn't allow Adobe AIR on its platform. Reality: Adobe AIR has been used for development of mobile applications for Android and IOS for several years. 2. Myth: Apps created in Adobe AIR require additional software to be downloaded to make them work. Reality: This used to be the case, but apps created in Adobe AIR are now self-contained and do not require additional software to run. 3. Myth: Adobe AIR is inferior to apps programmed in Java for Android or C in IOS. Reality: Apps created in Adobe AIR can be programmed to be indistinguishable from native apps, including compatibility with the latest retina displays. They can be built to have responsive layouts and intuitive user interfaces. 4. The advantages of using Adobe AIR to build apps: (a) You save on development time because only one set of code needs to be produced. (b) If you need updates later on, only one set of code needs to be updated. (c) If you already have Flash files for the Internet, it is easy to adapt them to use on mobile phones. (d) Your app will look the same on both Android and IOS by default. 5. Issues to be aware of when commissioning mobile apps built in Adobe AIR: (a) They won't install on older ARM6 phones (for Android) or the iPhone 3. (b) Some phone functions cannot be accessed directly by Adobe AIR and require 'native extensions' (programs that can be accessed by the app which have been written in code native to that platform). (c) The Adobe AIR interpreter is built out of native code, so the performance of an AIR app is lower by definition. Techniques to optimise app performance mean that you may not notice the difference, especially if your app is not hungry for processing power. (d) They do not make use of any in-built user-interface elements provided by the Android or IOS platforms. (e) AIR apps sometimes need updating when a new mobile operating system is released to be compatible with the new operating system (this is also true of native apps, but to a lesser extent in my experience). If you want your apps for 'in house' purposes (i.e. not for general release), then this issue is less likely to affect you. Please contact me if you want to know more or if you are unsure about whether or not Adobe AIR would be suitable for building your app. If you want your app to look and behave in exactly the same way on Android and IOS, then Adobe AIR may be your ideal solution with the added advantage of requiring only one set of code to be written instead of two.

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2

I am 25, married, and based out of Kaneohe, Hawaii. After I graduated from the University of Hawaii in 2011, I moved to Washington, DC where I began working for an online education startup, Saylor.org. I gained a ton of experience there as I worked in all aspects of the small foundation: administrative/office duties, content development, as well as business development. I loved my two and half years there, but wanted to experience living abroad for a while. My goal is create work opportunities for myself that aren't tied down to a physical location. A location independent career is my ultimate goal. Whether that's something I find on oDesk or not, it is something I will pursue until it becomes a reality. I am a very hard-working and dedicated person. I don't feel like any job is below me as I've seen first hand how important every facet of an organization is in order for it to run smoothly. I have a breadth of experience in creative and technical writing, online research, copyediting, and content development. I take great pride in everything I do, whether big or small. I want people to feel confident that when they assign something to me, they know they will get in back quickly and exactly to their specifications -- and I think I have done that throughout my working life. Here is snippet of a letter of recommendation my former boss at Saylor.org (now CIO at Moneythink in Chicago) wrote for me: "David on many occasions took on additional work without being asked in order to make my life easier and improve the overall process for our faculty. He would do this without fanfare or the desire or need for acknowledgment. This thoughtfulness and commitment to his work and to our organization bowled me over. When the opportunity for promotion into a different role within the organization emerged, I sadly but willingly recommended him for the role, knowing he was capable of nearly anything but of course disappointed that I would be losing him in my department. I can frankly say that no one was able to fill his shoes in the position!" Loyalty and seeing things through are also very important to me. During my last few months at Saylor.org, I was working on a joint course project with NASA. This project had been my baby for the past six months and although my wife and I were eager to start our life abroad together, I needed to see my project through to the end. From the first meeting to the last, I was the project lead and managed a team of instructional designers, subject matter experts, and AV specialists to create a course that had nearly 10,000 students enrolled. I also have experience working remotely, so I know how to manage my time appropriately and stay on task outside the traditional office environment. Since June 2014, I have been freelance writing for clients mainly found on oDesk. I write primarily on travel, education, personal finance, and health. I have never had a client who was unsatisfied with my work and continually receive praise not only for the content I produce, but for the timely manner in which I get it in, the responsiveness I display, and the general ease of working with me. These are all qualities I pride myself on and always want to be known for. If you choose me for your project, I can guarantee you will be satisfied with the results. I will commit myself to the work and will always see the project through to completion. Should there be additional work available after the initial project, I would love the opportunity to work on that as well. If you would like me to complete a small test project first, I would be more than happy to do that as well.
