10+ years software development experience
   Australia

Overview

I have been professionally writing software for 10+ years. My preferred languages are Python, PHP and Javascript, however I have experience with many more languages.

Most of my software development has been with web applications across various industries. However, I have spent much of the last 2 years working on stock market trading software.

I enjoy the challenge an developing large scale web applications, recently launching a real-time search engine of all the links on twitter.

Service Description

I live and work in Adelaide Australia as it is one of the best cities in the world.

I have switched regularly between working for companies, starting my own web companies and doing freelance development work.

My current focus is doing freelance work as I enjoy learning about new business models and industries, applying my computing knowledge to interesting problems.

I make use of free open source software where possible to help reduce the time and cost of the software development process. Accordingly I also contribute to various open source software projects where appropriate.

Here is a list of some open source software I used recently: Python, PHP, Cassandra, Lucene, Gearman, Codeigniter, Django, Apache, Java, Linux, Javascript, CSS, SOAP/XML-RPC.

Extensive MySQL experience to build robust and *fast* SQL.

CVS/SVN to assist project management.

LAMP configuration and setup under Linux/*BSD/Windows.

Expert with AJAX, heavily used jQuery, Dojo and other Javascript libraries.

I'm a firm believer in using the right tool for the job. I have recently used .NET libraries and the Visual Studio Development Environment when working with stock market trading software as it was the right solution for the job at hand. Most stock traders already have a windows environment and the number of existing .NET libraries greatly reduced the overall development time and cost of the project.

If you are looking for a highly versatile developer with a wide range of software development...
