Sr. Ruby on Rails Developer | Web Project Manager

Canada - Last active: 10/28/2014 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

I'm a professional web-developer with 7 years experience in Ruby on Rails. You may find my pay rate higher than of other developers. Well, there're 4 good reasons for it: • When you hire me you pay only for productive work. I'm not billing my time spent on googling, reading manuals, etc. Only time spent on programming your particular task. • I'm not Mr. Know-it-all, but I know a lot. My experience includes coding on Ruby, C++, Java, Perl and PHP; HTML5, CSS3, jQuery and responsive design for mobile platforms. 8 years of MySQL and Postgres databases. NoSQL solutions like HandlerSocket and Redis. Searching engines Sphinx and Solr. • I'm a universal soldier, as good in server-side coding as in front-end development. Need to develop a completely new social network or clone some tips and tricks from existing web-site? Or just want to grab data from online shop and upload to yours? Set up Nginx with Unicorn or PHP5-FPM? I can do all with no hassle. • Some developers don't like to manage with others' code. I love it. All my career I have been modifying someone else's code and feel quite comfortable with it. Keywords: Agile, Rails 2/3/4, PostgreSQL, MySQL, NoSQL, Sphinx, Solr, HTML5/CSS3, jQuery, Twitter Bootstrap, Backbone.js, Nginx, Apache, Git, AWS, Heroku, responsive design, data scraping.

United States - Last active: 11/11/2012 - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 5

For a prettier format of my profile, please see my website: http://redningja.com . I will tackle any Ruby tasks that you need. I can write anything from small Ruby scripts to full-blown Web applications. I'm very friendly, easy to talk to, and easy to work with. Whether you are technical or not, I talk in plain English with no jargon so that you know exactly what's going on and how things work. I don't just work FOR you, but WITH you. My code is clean, readable, and regularly refactored. TESTING IS A HIGH PRIORITY IN MY WORK, NOT AN AFTERTHOUGHT. I WILL WORK FOR A LOWER RATE FOR GOOD CAUSES. Efficient and Easy for You For web applications, I use Heroku, a service that allows me to quickly give you a product in a working state so you can immediately interact with it. No work needed on your end. I just give you a web address, and you see results in seconds. Knowledgeable I regularly follow Ruby news and attend conferences, so you can be confident that I am keeping up with technology. Flexibility I can work any day of the week at any reasonable hour of the day. I've had clients across the globe and have had no problems making myself available at a time that is convenient for them. I respond to emails quickly and give plenty of warning if I will not be available. Why Testing Matters There is no such thing as bug-free code. If you were an online bank, how confident are you that every transaction is working like it is designed to? Can you afford to have a bug? With automated tests, you have code that verifies your application is working as expected. Most good programmers nowadays are thoroughly testing their code. It helps with development, and it helps when things go wrong like many things eventually do. Tests will also help you make sure that fixing a bug here won't cause another bug way over there. Not having automated tests makes development SEVERAL TIMES slower, costing more money and more headache. Frameworks, gems, tools, etc. that I use: Ruby on Rails Sinatra Padrino HAML/SASS JavaScript CoffeeScript jQuery Prototyp/Scriptaculous TestUnit RSpec MiniTest Jasmine Capybara Machinist Spork Selenium Formtastic Nokogiri HTTParty Bundler RVM MySQL PostgreSQL MongoDB ActiveRecord Mongoid Devise OmniAuth Heroku Amazon S3 Spreedly

[oDesk Top 20] Ruby on Rails Web Application & ECo...

United States - Last active: 01/14/2011 - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 8

Wow - I was just ranked by oDesk as #5 out of all web developers on the site. Thanks to all of my great clients for making this possible! Look - I know you're a business person. You have a great idea for a web application, and you need someone to help you bring it to life. I've helped a number of entrepreneurs turn their ideas into reality. Just check out my portfolio. I've built complex shopping sites, social networks, affiliate sites, and rich internet applications from the ground up. So, if you need someone who can take the ball and run with it, I'm your man. Most entrepreneurs have similar concerns: Budget -------- Most people in your shoes have to worry about the budget (don't we all?). That's why I quote a fixed price for all of my projects. Not an estimate, a quote. So you know *exactly* how much money you need to spend to get your site up and ready for customers. But if you're looking for the cheapest - someone who'll cut corners to save a few minutes' work - you'd better look elsewhere. My work is on par with most of my peers who chare $100 or more per hour. I'd rather spend my time coding, rather than trying to convince someone to pay me $100/hour. :) Support ---------- All of my clients have my mobile number. I'm located in the US, Central time zone so it's easy to reach me. If you desire, I can handle the setup and administration of your web server. All of my work has a 30 day guarantee. So if you find any bugs once the app is deployed, I'll fix them for free. Growth --------- You want to be able to add new features to your web application as you grow more and more successful. Coders who take shortcuts can make this nearly impossible. Some of the applications I've seen that were created by inexperienced offshore developers are like time-bombs. You want to make a simple change, but you don't know if you should cut the red or green wire. I put in a lot of effort to make sure that my code is clean, modular, and readable. That means the next guy who works on the application will be able to make changes quickly and easily. Competence --------------- A developer should have an intimate knowledge of his tools. Ruby on Rails: I've used rails to develop e-commerce sites, social networks, as well as back-office applications. Ruby: I have released a number of open-source projects. JavaScript:I've created highly interactive GUIs for web applications using Javascript, jquery and extjs. These include data grids, custom dialogs, and menus. I'm proficient in using Javascript to consume web services. Python:I've used Python to implement a recurring billing system, email autoresponders, and a custom queue server to mitigate database scaling issues. MySQL:I've used mysql from PHP and Python, with both the ADODB abstraction libraries and language-specific APIs.
