May 22, 2009|Web Programming|$770|Working
I have about 5 years of experience in web-programming and web-development.
Now I prefer using Python and Django for my projects (I have about 2 years of experience in Django and some experience in Pylons - another Python web-framework), but I often use other languages and technologies - PHP, Perl and even Lisp.
I write clean and standard-compliant HTML (XHTML) and CSS.
I work with different versions of MySQL and PostgreSQL RDMS.
I usually use Linux for developing and production. I know how to optimize server and applications for high load (caching, dedicated light server - nginx or lighttpd - for static files, MySQL or PostgreSQL tuning, etc.)
For now my biggest site developed in Django is Free Encyclopedia of Programming Languages - http://progopedia.com/ (Russian version also exists - http://progopedia.ru/ ). The site uses Python, Django, JQuery with TreeView plug-in, Markdown as markup language, Pygments for syntax highlighting, django-reversion for version control, DISQUS and django-disqus for comments.
Another big site partly developed by me - Russian twitter clone with music playing capabilities and elements of social network - http://lichiko.com/ (Alexa Traffic Rank 80,860). The part of site I developed is basically music search engine (Sphinx-powered - see http://www.sphinxsearch.com/) with huge collection of mp3s. It's is mainly AJAX-powered.
Also I won two web-development competitions...
