Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

I am very good at programming - I started when I was 14 as a hobby and knew straight away it would be my future career. Until 2011 I worked full time as an IT developer at a company offering one stop solutions based around design, print, storage and fulfilment. Now I'm preparing the yacht I live on to travel and working freelance to support myself and keep up to date with programming technologies.

Service Description

I like to look at a business need and understand it, with a view to designing and developing a solution that fulfills the requirements in a robust and extensible fashion.

I consider myself very strong with SQL Server - I can design and develop a large normalised database with naming conventions and referential integrity strictly applied. I am comfortable with T-SQL whether in stored procedures, triggers, functions, views, etc.

I have a lot of experience in developing Windows applications - in recent years I have mostly used C# but previously have used VB and Delphi extensively.

For the last few years I have been gaining experience in creating web applications. My application development and database experience give me a very strong platform from which to implement functionality complex solutions - though I should note I am not a graphic designer and so would be less suitable for slick marketing designs when the primary requirement is cosmetic.

I prefer to cultivate long standing client relationships whenever possible - this allows me to continually improve my suggestions and solutions based on increasing knowledge and awareness of the problem domain.
