Creation of complex sites from scratch

Russia - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 5

I am working as a web developer for about 10 years. I have started with small freelance tasks and ended with complex web projects. I believe my strong point is ability to understand other's code. I have done many freelance projects involving modification of working projects and that required deep study of code that has been written before. Such a work usually harder than writing a project from zero. I also have wrote from zero two complex CMS with Perl+Mojolicious. One of my large achievements is a complex site written on Perl for a non-commercial international organization (see in portfolio). Last three years I am working on a large online magazine with elements of social network. This requires understanding of Perl, fastCGI, HTML, MySQL. I am constantly implementing new features and fixing bugs that remained from old programmers. I prefer writing in Perl, though I understand PHP and have done many projects with this language. Listed below are my skills: — MySQL — Perl — Mojolicious — PHP/HTML/CSS/JavaScript/jQuery — Nginx configuration — Basics of Linux — dotCloud and other PaaS deployment

I'm an expert software engineer with 8+ years of experience. My languages of choice are Python, C and Go. Other languages I had experience with are C++, Java, Scheme, Javascript (with Node.js), Perl, PHP. My main expertise is building highly available and efficient backends for high-traffic applications that handle hundreds and thousands requests per second. I'm in sympathy to OSS ideas and have contributed to a wide range of open source projects – VLC, Git, Nginx, Django, GDB, etc. I'm interested in distributed, concurrent and fault-tolerant systems. Currently I'm reading SICP and solving exercises from this great book. Source code for solved exercises is also available on my Github page.

Expert Web Scraper, Automation Developer - Web/Des...

India - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 5

- Web Scraping/Crawling (using NodeJS, PhantomJS/CasperJS, CheerioJS, Python, PERL & Java) - General Automation (Web/Browser/Desktop) - Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey scripts - General Scripting (Python, PERL, Shell Scripting) - UNIX command-line tools, VIM Try me. You won't be disappointed. What have I got to offer? I’ve got some really good experience & expertise in automation (web & desktop - Linux, Win & OSX), quick scripting & general coding. You can always trust me with almost any automation/coding requirements (ex. unix command line tools, developing quick scripts, tweaking existing scripts, web scraping/crawling, creating APIs) at a fair price and a very quick turnover. When I deliver a piece of code/script, I’ll make sure that it is professionally written (to the highest quality & efficiency) and that it has a proper README file (on using it in your local system/host). For clients who are interested only in the output, I’m by all means fine to run it on my set of hosts and give them the expected output (in the requested format - TXT, CSV, JSON, XML, XSLX, DOCX, Insert directly into a DB etc.). Exclusive Experience? Web scraping & web crawling are clearly a part of automation and just here in oDesk, I’ve scraped close to 300 websites (all types - static pages, javascript/AJAX heavy websites, CAPTCHA posing websites, IP banning websites etc.) and I’m pretty comfortable with this. About me? I’m passionate about coding and so I always keep learning something new or look around github for some interesting projects to contribute. To me all programming languages are just a set of syntax rules - anyone with strong DS & Algorithm knowledge can learn and master them in days/weeks. Preferred OS: Linux, Preferred Editor: vim Work Style? My approach for any fixed price automation job is - 1. Analyse the requirements 2. Come up with a time & price estimate & Review it with the client 3. Develop a quick sample script 4. Generate a sample output of the code and send it to the client for suggestions/corrections 5. Tweak the script to accommodate the suggestions 6. Develop a full fledged perfect script 7. Run the script to get the final output 8. Send the output (and/or script according to the job) to the client for a ‘thumbs up’ 8. a. By this stage we shouldn’t be having any changes in script, but if at all the client has any last minute changes, I can accommodate them, give a fresh run/output 9. Send any other related stuff - like README file, if the script needs to be run at the client’s end 10. Get paid & reviewed 11. If unsatisfied, I’m willing to give back all the money paid by the client. If at all you want to interview me, I’m available at Skype (ID: vdraceil) Looking forward to many great work experiences.

Russia - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

I've used to work for Oracle Inc. creating the Java Development Kit and I'm have made more commits to the JDK9 project than anybody else. My main focus was to deliver Java port for Mac OS X, so I have great experience both with Java and with Objective-C. I've been an intern in Howard Hughes Medical Institute in USA, making math and predictive models for the neuroscience institution. I have 2 higher degrees: master in Computer Science and bachelor in Economics, both finished with the highest possible grade. A while ago I've lost satisfaction with the job at Oracle and decided to become a freelancer. My aim here is to find interesting tasks and solve them.
