@iDoMeteor (Jason)

I focus on, and solve, the hardest problems I can find on Code Mentor. I can code, debug, deploy & manage just about any tech stack; especially Linux, AWS & Meteor.

Eastern Time (US & Canada) (-05:00)
I put out cyber fires for fun, enjoy fine Italian suits and craft fantastic classic cocktails. Polyphasic sleeper serving all timezones! Writer of content management systems, re-usable apps & member of Mensa. Human languages for fun, programming languages for breakfast. I left Detroit in the dotCom era to live in the woods, wear camo every day and kill my own food when I need to and with much respect. I solve my own problems (and those of that ISP/Software providers can't or won't) with grace and efficiency. I'll be happy to solve yours! My three most valuable skills: * Problem solving * Anticipation (of variables and user expectations) * Machine logic These skills, when applied to any challenge, design or technology stack, produce efficient and reliable results. What I enjoy most about Code Mentor: Utilizing my unique skill set to solve a diverse set of challenging critical issues for people in a bind. My most satisfying sessions solve very difficult and unique situations for those who have already exhausted their available human resources. I also really enjoy students who gain enlightenment from the deep insights that I can provide during our sessions. FAQ * No, I will not fly anywhere. * Yes, we have roads & electricity here, you should visit. :) * No, I am not a robot. But my bots might be one day. ** POLICIES ** * I do not charge if I fail to make satisfactory progress on your issue * I do not generally charge for the "show & tell" phase of our session * If your request rate is higher than my standard rate & I have experience in your issue, our session rate will match your request rate * I try to make a record of all changes and be able to revert them quickly, but it is your responsibility to archive responsibly * CodeMentor has changed my life in very positive ways and I strictly adhere to their billing policy. All offline work must be paid for through CM at standard or agreed upon rates. * Time management is *not* my specialty. If you need your thing done, it's best to do it live in real-time. ;) ** SUPPORT TIERS ** Level 0: $30/15 - My weak areas / Voodoo+ / Students / First 100 Clients - Easy JS stuff - Standard Rate Level I: $40/15 - Standard rate when I have backlog Level II: $60/15 - High pressure environments / General Wizardry + - Advanced AWS (recovery, security, etc) - Docker / Elastic Beanstalk image building & deployment - Forensics - Distaster recovery - POS - High-level security - Pre-scheduled hours outside 12:00 - 21:00 EST - Advanced design (animation, meteor, 3D, crazy toolkit requirements, WP) Level III: $75/15 - Extreme pressure / Heavy Wizardry / Deep Magic + - Emergency response for mission-critical systems - Dedicated support through to resolution - Level II + Pre-scheduled hours outside 12:00 - 21:00 EST - Jump to top of queue! + http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/go01.html Moments: * 20160707 - My first session! * 20160817 - My 100th session!

No icon Linux - 22 years experience

Jquery expert help jQuery - 7 years experience
I use jQuery just about every time I touch code.
No icon Security - 26 years experience
Security minded in everything I do, circa 1990. Pirated more software than you've ever heard of before Internet killed the BBS stars. Took out more underground pornographers than you can shake your Internet cane at. 18 years ago I evolved ethically and traded my gray hat for a white one. Prevention, detection and mitigation has replaced the rebellious angst and boredom which led to my more vigilante-style activities. In my life long career as a rock star cyber guru, none of my clients, local or remote, have ever had any security related incidents or misappropriation of intellectual property or trade secrets. I can provide real-world references which include high-profile criminal attorneys and clients in medical, financial and innovation industries.

No icon Point of sale - 25 years experience
I began working with point-of-sale systems as a teenager, fixing video store computer networks for video games. It quickly evolved to connecting multiple locations using RAS/DUN in Windows 95 Beta! I have fixed everything from fancy new-age mostly-working mobile POS systems to ancient things w/monochrome monitors & cryptic manuals missing important pages. I also build complete hardware & software solutions from the ground up for local businesses.

Just finished with another extremely productive session. This time we did the Dev Ops on our Ecommerce web site that is built on Meteor and we use Amazon Web Services to host it.

Jason is incredibly responsible and helpful. We connected the night before and my unique situation was something he hadn't encountered before so he took a bit of time on his own to think about it and came back the next morning helping me solve my problem. Thanks again!
Michael Du Sep 09, 2016

Jason understand needs and work on task better then expected. We had some limitations in implementing the requirements, but quickly found an alternative solution. He explains what is being done, so that the work becomes justified. He explains what he does, so then you are able to do it alone.
