Top Command line Developers of June 2017

I create things that help you experience freedom in life.

Hey there, my name is Toby. I am a freedompreneur, curious human and the #1 best-selling author of my life. Ever since I was 12 years old, technology was one of my main playing grounds. It all started with my first computer. Today, I mainly create things using web technologies. I have done so for a long time and learned many important things along the way. That is why I consider myself fit for duty on this fine platform. I know what it is like to struggle with technology, to spend hours searching for solutions to a problem. I know what it is like to feel the excitement when something works. I have been there. I believe that technology is an invaluable tool on your journey and I want to help you make the most of it. Growth never stops, this is a fundamental truth of life. I consider us equals, because you know something I don't, and I know something you don't. I am looking forward to helping you bend the Matrix to your will. Live long and prosper, Toby

Full Stack, *nix user, Pianist, College Dropout, Vegetarian, Jesus follower

Hi! My name is Ionică Bizău. If you're having problems pronouncing it, you can simply call me Johnny (that's how "Ionică" is translated in English). I work as full stack developer since 2012, with Node.js & JavaScript. Before that, I was creating WordPress sites and HTML/CSS apps. Currently I'm doing the best in Node.js (including command line tools), JavaScript, SVG (d3, svg.js). If I can help, I'll definitely do it, as long your app is not promoting things which tend to be potentially immoral. For example, I'm happy to help you build an e-shop, but I won't build an e-shop designed specifically for selling wine, since I'm against the use of alcohol for drinking. ♦ Node.js: 4 years of experience, ~600 packages published on NPM ♦ JavaScript: 4 years of experience, lots of libraries you can download freely ( ♦ English good enough to talk with everybody and understand each other ♦ GitHub Enthusiast (follow me: ♦ Git & GitHub power user ♦ Comfortable with MongoDB (especially, the native driver for Node.js) ♦ I will not charge you if I can't fix your issue. Why you can trust me: ★ I am vegetarian. I have never eaten meat. ★ I don't drink wine, beer etc etc. Never did it. :-) ★ I work 6 days, and I rest on the 7th day. That's why I am *not* available on Saturdays (specifically between Friday's sunset and Saturday's sunset, Romania time). ★ I sleep between ~9:30PM and ~6:00AM. Depending on your timezone I can wake up earlier if you book a session with me. ★ I am a piano player. ★ I use Linux and VIM.
