Russia - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 6

I am PHP/Ruby/Javascript developer. The skills I have acquired to date: I have a lot of experience in developing plugins, components and modules for Joomla CMS I mainly work with PHP and Javascript; I have extensive experience working with MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite databases; I am able to create complex structures in databases; I have extensive experience working with AJAX and jQuery library; Additionally, I possess coding skills with HTML/CSS; And also had development experience with the following CMS: Drupal, OpenCart. In addition, I have a little experience with frameworks such as Yii Framework, Ruby on Rails, a bit of experience working with XML/XSLT technologies, and I am familiar with the basics of the Ruby language, but I have not used it in practice. My overall experience in web programming is about 7 years. Six years ago I graduated from the Moscow Aviation Institute with a degree in "Robotic and Intelligent Systems". Even then I realized that the scope of creating information systems really attracts me, that is what am I good at and what I constantly want to do. After graduation, I was not satisfied with the acquired knowledge and continued further development of my skills. In addition, in 2011 I took the official course of PHP/MySQL in Bauman Moscow State University, then in 2013 passed out a course in web programming there, and a few months later completed a course in "Protecting websites from hacking." Please feel free to contact me. I am sure I can be useful to you.

United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3

#If you consider me for a project, please ask me about completing a test project! Graphic design was a small hobby of mine since middle school. While in high school and college I worked on small projects that interfaced with the web. After graduating from Duke in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), I have worked extensively on all levels of web development, and I have grown to love the field. TeenAIDS.org highlights some of my best work - I led the work on the design along with writing e-mail friendly newsletter layouts. I believe my current personal project is my greatest achievement, which I think it is best described as a new form of a social media platform. After intensive research, I settled on using the Pyramid web framework (python) with a Cassandra database server, served by nginx and uwsgi on Linux. The web service is incredibly resource-intensive, so every aspect, from the back end to the security to the front end, has had a heavy emphasis on optimization, especially on the database. My database design is probably my greatest achievement, in that I have a method to reduce specific query cases from a few minutes per query to standard query-response time, which is usually in the milliseconds for Cassandra. Other experience: Rails/Ruby, Javascript, CSS3/HTML5, sass, SQL/CQL, Django, CodeIgniter, Symphony. Experience that I lack but I am currently seeking is launching a site that will be under heavy load (lots of visitors), and more experience with C/C++/C#. My top 2 strengths as an employee: 1) Working in robotics since high school and ECE has developed an excellent work ethic in me. I am used to hard deadlines, and doing "whatever it takes" to meet those deadlines. In college I often padded my backpack so I could take naps on the lab floor, which saved commute time and ensured I would never oversleep. 2) I hold a lot of respect for every person (with the usual exceptions, of course), and I care about others and their problems. This causes me to be straightforward, honest, diligent, and easy to work with. If I am worried about meeting a deadline, I will not hide the fact, and I will do what I can to make sure the end result is pleasant and fair for everyone. My top 2 strengths as a programmer and developer: 1) Working with robotics and working in the ECE field has helped me develop rigorous testing and debugging techniques, from the first phases of development. When working on equipment, the tiniest bugs can bring an entire system down - and often there is not an opportunity to rectify the bug after the fact. 2) Every project is different, with specific requirements, and I have the patience and enthusiasm to extensively research each problem beforehand. The best example of this is the design of my project's database - I was able to overcome the hurdles encounter by other programmers from researching their methods, researching how databases work on a low level, and then developing an original solution. Also note that a lot of time researching is for myself as well as my clients, however, I don't consider it "work". If I did a large amount of research for a client, I might bring up billable research time in a candid discussion, but I do not want to set an expectation that I be bill for all of that time. My main goals working as a freelancer are to gain experience on new projects

Germany - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 3

Hello there! I'm fluent in English as well as German (native) and proficient in Python, Visual Basic for Applications, Javascript, HTML5 and CSS3. In database-terms, I have experience with MySQL, mongodb and redis. In addition I have experience in working with APIs and advanced usage of MS-Excel (including VBA). I am self-taught and was self-employed (in eCommerce) for about 2 years now so I know very well how things go down in a startup. I understand that quick and easily revised software solutions (...that actually work) are key to the healthy evolution of the business. In my time as a developer I have specialized in creating reactive and interactive websites as well as large-scale data-mining techniques. Utilizing powerful multi-threaded applications and efficient utilization of REST-APIs I am able to create automated crawlers and scraper that are capable of collecting terabytes of valuable data weekly. I’m looking forward to making your projects real!

Web Developer

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

Hey there! I'm a freelance web developer based in Germany. Over the last several years I've been building websites using PHP, Ruby, Rails, jQuery, Javascript, Bootstrap, CSS3, HTML5 and more. My preferred CMS of choice when working with PHP has been Wordpress. I also love scripting and automating tasks with the help of Ruby or Python. So I would be more than glad to help you scrape a few thousand web pages in order to get the data you're looking for. I'm currently a student at a German university, so I have to deal with both German and English on a day-to-day basis. Moreover I'm a native Russian speaker. So feel free to contact me in case you are looking for a really human translation of anything involving any of these three languages.
