ABOUT ME
Programmer for 10+ years. Experience mostly in web development (backend) and a little bit of mobile. Have worked on enterprise applications, personal side projects and "experimented" with game development/modding/hacking.
EXPERTISE
6 Python
4 Django
Django expert help Django - 5 years experience
I've used Django to develop many different projects over the years. Within our team, I focus mostly on the back-end aspect of things (i.e. designing models, managing model migrations, writing views/urls, writing custom middleware, as well as any custom template tags/filters we might need). Pretty much everything except writing html/css for templates. <3 Django documentation. I sometimes read it on the toilet.
Python expert help Python - 5 years experience
Started learning Python alongside Django, though I only started seeing Python in itself as one of my tools a while later. I've used python mostly for task automation at my workplace (database connectivity, data manipulation, HTTP request/response communication, etc). Currently in a semi-serious relationship with this language. I'm in love.
Javascript expert help JavaScript - 4 years experience
Most of the JavaScript I've written has been for frameworks that use it (among others) as their server-side language. For front-end development...well, now a days there's nothing that jQuery can't do in a better, more browser-independent way.
No icon PhoneGap - 2 years experience
Developed a couple of apps with Phonegap, one for our local mobile phone carrier which they baked into their new line of phones. It included push notifications which told the app when to download new content from a Django powered CMS, which we also developed alongside the app. Experience in plugin development for phonegap.
No icon Msil - 1 year experience
Most of what I know about Microsoft Intermediate Language has been learned while "modding" unity games. I started out editing values here and there, tweaking the game a bit, and ended up adding functions/classes to add completely new functionality to the game. Very fun (if not the most fun) type of programming IMHO.
No icon Cil - 1 year experience
Most of what I know about the Common Intermediate Language has been learned while "modding" unity games. I started out editing values here and there, tweaking the game a bit, and ended up adding functions/classes to add completely new functionality to the game. Very fun (if not the most fun) type of programming IMHO.
No icon Alfresco - 3 years experience
Developed a document management application (5+ million documents) with webscripts (javascript) for the Alfresco Share Interface.
No icon Unity - 1 year experience
Some experience in game development, as a hobby.

Impressive! Armando has delivered outstanding offline help within a very short time frame. The codes are very clever and well thought out, accompanied by plenty of helpful comments to facilitate my understanding. Really appreciate Armando's patient and professional follow-up with my questions with a detailed live discussion and step-by-step explanations. Had a very productive and fruitful learning experience through this offline help and am most thankful about it.
