Overall Ratings
I'm extremely proficient with Ruby and Rails which I've been writing full time since 2007 with Rails 1.2. I've worked alone and on teams with many startups building apps from ground zero and also coming in as an expert to help scale and build out important features. I'm most well versed in Ruby and Rails (including numerous gems including running Resque queues) but am also excellent at SQL (MySQL, Postgres, MS SQL Server), CSS (including sass), HTML and JavaScript (including jQuery, Backbone, Knockout and CoffeeScript) as well as past rusty experience with PHP (wordpress, cake, codeigniter, smarty), Java and C#. I have systems administration experience with several linux distributions, Mac OS X and running production apps on Amazon AWS and Heroku. I'm also well versed with many popular APIs (Twitter, Yelp, etc.), billing systems including Paypal and Stripe, working with Amazon Mechanical Turk (major committer to the rTurk gem), Amazon SES email delivery, Amazon S3 and CloudFront, Amazon EC2. I've worked with a lot of stuff, just ask. People hire me because I'm excellent at what I do and am quick to identify solutions since I've worked with many teams and have had the chance to pick up a great deal of best practices. If I can figure out your problem, I'll know very quickly. I'm smart and get things done.
