Overview

My 5 years experience in building web applications has given me an intimate understanding of what creates a successful product and a smooth project.

I take pride in my work, and I'm glad it shows:

"Many contractors will do the work you've asked for, and quite a few will do it well, yet the number that will go above and beyond, making suggestions for improvement and offering additional enhancements are rare indeed. Damien is that kind of contractor--very, very pleased with the work he has done." -- adamdunford

Service Description

I am a full-stack developer, which means I work with frontend technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and backend technologies such as PHP and Ruby.

I mostly adhere to agile development methodology and test-driven development (TDD). For that I use Rspec and Capybara. I use Git for version control. On the database, I default to PostgreSQL and Redis.

On the frontend I use HTML (Haml, Slim), CSS (Sass), and Javascript (Coffeescript). I use Angularjs for single-page applications, and Twitter Bootstrap to quickly prototype design and layout.

I develop on Linux, and use Monit, Nginx and Puma in production. I use Capistrano for deployment and Ansible for quick server provisioning. I mainly use Linode VPS, but also have experience with Heroku and Amazon EC2

Communication is crucial to a successful project. My project management software sends out continuous notifications of progress, which can be supported by frequent status updates, and I am available on Skype any time.
