Experienced Programmer (PHP, CodeIgniter, jQuery, C++, Qt)

Grayling, United States



What's the difference

I consider myself a fairly decent programmer. I'm fluent in web and software application programming.

Lately I've been involved mostly in web applications (using PHP). I'm more suited with web application (getting things working - and well) rather than web design (making things look pretty). The projects I've been involved with used PHP/CodeIgniter along with jQuery for browser scripting. I've also done some work with WordPress plugins.

I'm also adaquently experienced in software applications.…

“Matthew is a joy to work with, friendly dedicated, good documentation and updates in email. Over the last 2 months he built a important complicated Qt client/server script for us and it worked successfully. The only things that give me 4 stars is others developers integrating with it found the code 'dancing' and not quite as knowledgeable about the insides of Qt as they would have liked..but it does work. Also He does keep somewhat odd hours (like me) so that made it harder to integrate with the rest of the team in other parts of the world but that may not affect you. He was happy to get setup on skype to make communicating easier.”
