Hello, I am Mayel.
I consider myself a "MacGyver" – quickly finding hacks or solutions to any technical or other problem – with duct-tape programming methods, which allows for the rapid creation of innovative and feature-rich applications, leveraging and bringing together the latest advances of any relevant open-source projects, open APIs, (draft) industry standards, research, cloud services, etc. It's like playing with lego. I like creating "working prototypes" of new tools and services.
I’ve been in charge of everything from product design to coding, pitching to fundraising, hiring to project management, cloud/server setups to system admin, community building to creating a movement, branding to PR to social media, marketing to sales to customer service, etc...
I'm an expert in PHP, HTML, CSS, JS (mostly jQuery), but beyond quick coding session, we can discuss your needs, which may involve agreeing on a limited amount of further contract work, such as helping with a PR/social media campaign/stunt, or hacking together a rapid prototype, etc.
For example, I can walk you through building an MVP, figuring out what is feasible, what tools you'll need, how to hire the right talent, and more. Or we can discuss platforms – LAMP. Rails. AWS. Etc. What are they? Which one is right for you, and especially why?
