United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5

I have been in the telecommunications industry for over 13 years and have worked as a consultant to major Fortune 500 companies in the past for both business and technology needs. I have a vast knowledge of anything that relates to the internet, both hardware and software realms and have worked on a variety of projects ranging from the simple to large scale transition ones spanning months at a time. I understand a business' need to get projects done right the first time and have always exceeded my clients goals. If they're not happy, I'm not happy. I have a dual bachelors degree from the University of Colorado at Denver in Business Information Technologies and Business Management. My Masters in Business Administration is in International Business and most IT skills I have picked up on my own or through various courses either online or at the local community college. I look forward to working with you and completing any projects you may have, from the quick fix to an entire server farm rebuild. I am also a word class back end programmer familiar with MySQL, Bash, PHP, Perl, and Python. Please, no front end design work, I don't have an eye for creativity (unless it's something simple of course). I look forward to working with you and any projects you may have for me.

A Web Developer using Open Source Technologies.

Mexico - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 13

I only work on hourly projects. Thanks! A fast learner and problem solving oriented programmer. I am a Web Developer and loving it! Do contact me to start a discussion about your project and how I can help! Work Policy: * I never bill for learning time. If a feature/project requires me to learn something new, I won't bill you since I'm already adding value via the newly acquired knowledge. * I try to deliver the best quality possible, but this is often a trade-off between time, budget, and the specific project situation. (For example, not all clients would want the time/money investment to create a full unit test suite) * I'll be honest. For example, I like giving suggestions on how to save time/money even if that means less billed hours for me. Frameworks I've used: Zend Framework, CodeIgniter, Drupal, Wordpress, ExpressionEngine, jQuery, YUI, a bit of Symfony, Ruby On Rails, Symfony, Flask. Technologies I've used: SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, Ruby, BASH, mySQL, PostgreSQL, Python.

System & Database Engineer

Germany - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4

Right after finishing my 4 years B.Sc. degree in Computer Science, obtained at the Sapientia University, Targu Mures I started to work in the IT. After some years of work as a developer / software engineer I had the chance to change my role and try out something more dynamic and chaotic which means I started to work as a system administrator. This role allowed me to show what a single person can do with some basic knowledge and passion to clean up a complete development stack, make an order in servers and services so other people can concentrate only on development. After my first steps in administration, a new world was just opening for me which was the automatization of servers as much as possible. After 5 years experience as a system engineer I'm sure, we should automate as much as possible. It really helps to be far away from the chaos of wrongly configured servers and inconsistent service deployments, which in long term could cause really huge troubles. Specialties: • Automation evangelist • Proficient problem solving and technical skills • Practical design, development and architecture capabilities • Ability to learn new technologies fast

Senior Dev: Perl/Catalyst/Moose/DBIC/NoSQL+AJAX/jQ...

Ukraine - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 19

Seeking opportunities in Perl oriented (Catalyst DBIC preferred) application development, shell and perl scripting, and BSD/Linux administration projects - to build sites and setup servers for your business or pleasure.In my mind, LAMP more often reads as LASP - Linux, Apache, (any|no)SQL, Perl - of course, with Catalyst, Template Toolkit and DBIx::Class/KiokuDB in pair with some RCS (git is preferred, but subversion, mercurial and others also possible). And of course, all can be integrated with AJAX libraries such as jQuery, Prototype, MooTools and other to create Web2.0 apptications.Great knowledge of regular expressions (regexp). Have real experience with MySql, Postgres, Oracle, CouchDB, LDAP, also worked with CPanel, Plesk and Ensim. And of course, have experience with Apache, SMTP (exim, postfix, sendmail), IMAP/POP (Cyrus, UW, Dovecot), firewalls (bsd/ipfw and linux/iptables), Samba and misc ftp and proxy solutions.I can work well as alone and as a team member.

Magento, python & Linux Expert.

Ecuador - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 7

I've got great php/mysql/css/html,javascript skills and use linux, ssh, git, svn, mercurial, apache, nginx and varnish on a daily basis, and I'm fluent both speaking and writing English and Spanish, I know a bunch of other languages to a lesser extent. Some of my work includes Magento(Community and Enterprise), Wordpress, Blender, Linux shell scripts, windows USB drivers, Server administration, configuration and much more. Most contracts require me to use Magento where I have done the following tasks: Event Observers. SOAP Api Extensions. Complete Custom Modules. Core Overrides. Upgrading Magento to Specific or Latest Version. Theme Customization. Custom Code Debugging. Everything else really. I've done everything with Magento at this point. I'm also comfortable using c, c++, python, and possibly any other normal programing language, either for web development(django) or gtk, qt and desktop applications. I prefer to use free software or open source tools, and while we can talk through Skype, I'll probably will ask you to use something like Jitsi or some other tool, to talk to me, you can also call me to my US number anytime. I'm familiar with SIP and VOIP frameworks for IM and voice applications, I can help you setup an Asterix server or a phone system for your company. I have extensive database experience and I've used mysql, postgres and sqlite to create very complex db schemes. Give me a try there is a high probability of you being happy with my performance. Cheers!!
