Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $80

Agile, standards-focused programmer, friendly, patient communicator and educator. Expert on universal design, accessibility, and Section 508 compliance.

Have been called "the Rosetta Stone" by one employer for my communication skills, and have "turned a project around" and "saved the day" according to others.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence expertise makes me the ideal candidate if you have big data to analyze.

Service Description

Behavior-driven software development means we will describe features to be coded in plain language we both understand, and you will see working software at every step along the way. In one-week iterations, I will add new features and you will comment on them in a weekly demo. We will set new priorities and repeat until the ROI proposition balances out.

I am very flexible, but I love working in ruby. Recent projects have been in rails and used mongodb for a NoSQL back end and a great deal of javascript organized by backbonejs for a responsive, interactive user experience. I deploy greenfield applications to cloud services like heroku so you can scale easily.

I have created event-driven services with eventmachine and nowjs, and I have integrated with all the major social networking APIs as well as some specialized APIs for educational technology.

I love working with startups and small companies. I require enthusiasm and buy-in from the highest levels of your organization, because if you don't have that, the project is probably doomed.

Get in touch so I can help with guidance early in the process!
