Jonathan Eunice

full-stack developer ● IT architecture & strategy ● DevOps ● smokejumper

Solid programmer. Great trouble-shooter, debugger, and "OMG! Everything is on fire! HALP!!" first responder. Especially good at complex integration and automation. Having "jumped the fence" into new programming languages and communities multiple times, strong mentor for just getting into new toolsets and approaches, or moving into cloud/DevOps deployments. Heavily using Python, JavaScript, nodejs, jQuery, d3.js, HTML, CSS, SVG, and LESS. Have worked extensively with PHP, WordPress, Perl, Java, SQL, MySQL, PostreSQL, XML, ODF, NoSQL, and a bunch of other stuff. Interested in, but have not relied on Ruby, Go, Julia, Rust, D, and Nim in production code. I can get in the wayback machine and do C, bash, awk, Ada, Pascal, Modula-2, Icon, LISP, Prolog, and Smalltalk, depending how far back you want to go. We'll pretend that BASIC thing never happened, s'ok? I've programmed inside the Unix kernel, distributed multi-threaded middleware, GUIs, application code, numerical/HPC, and more.

Matthew G.

I use technology to enrich people.

As a serial entrepreneur over the past 2 decades, I have a powerful understanding of business, technology, and people. I have scaled code to reach millions, both from a development and server perspective. My strength lives in my ability to communicate abstract concepts and support others in thinking through complex thought processes. I understand various components of tech, from DNS, to APIs, to servers, to development, to frontend/backend, and I can help someone think through their project and learn what's best. I can also share in a way that is sustainable, where someone is learning on their own. I want you to succeed without me. I also have consulted around business strategy and the psychology of entrepreneurship to optimize success. If you're not satisfied with any time we spend together, no charge. I value impact.

James Qualls

JavaScript and Node.js Ninja, Python Enthusiast, and Distributed Systems Architect.

I love working with amazon web service's cloud-based infrastructure and engineering distributed systems. I go by the philosophy of automate early and automate often. I am a full stack developer and I build systems that take advantage of TDD, BDD, and continuous integration. Node.js is my go-to language when I am writing API's and web services. Python is my language of choice when I need to build something that is more computationally expensive or easier to express in a synchronous way. I use tools like Ansible for configuration management and deployment. This offers a more flexible solution for software like chef, puppet, or salt stack because the remote machine only needs to have ssh and python, no remote daemon and because Ansible uses ssh you get battle-tested security. Finally, I also have experience with NoSQL systems like MongoDB, Elasticsearch, and RethinkDB.

Michael Bøcker-Larsen

Geek and Entrepreneur

I'm a geek and an entrepreneur that takes pride in solving tasks elegantly within set limitations. I have had my own share of achievements and challenges with my own businesses and projects in my 15+ years as a developer. I love working with others and sharing and expanding my knowledge, which is why I'm excited to share my expertise as a mentor, colleague or consultant on your project. /**  * Technologies I work with but not limited to.  * @return a well-equipped toolbox  */ ⦾ PHP (all versions), expert level (I write PSR-2 style) ⦾ JavaScript in multiple flavors (ES6, TypeScript, CoffeeScript, etc), expert level ⦾ In varying degrees: Go, Python, Java, Elm, Elixir. I can switch between languages and language styles, and explicitly make use of design patterns ⦾ Frameworks that I use but am not limited to: Laravel; Vue.js, Angular 1+2, and Knockout.js. I quickly adapt to a new framework as I am able to quickly grasp the key concepts and I usually go directly to reading the code. ⦾ Databases and servers locally and in the cloud. I've done a lot of DevOps with AWS, Digital Ocean, etc. Tools: Ansible, Terraform, Consul, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, etc. ⦾ I predominantly use Linux-based environments and I am an avid Vim user. I contribute to the open-source community (publish and make PRs) and in general, I'm visible on developer communities on Slack, Gitter, Stack Overflow, etc. I mastered in dynamic and open narratives in multi-player/agent games—a subject I still find use for in other work in terms of first order logic, automatons, and the formalization of information knowledge. I've worked remotely for over 8 years now and I’m well aware of the challenges and advantages of not being in the same office or time zone as that of my clients. The key points are clarity of communication and that the distance forces you to explicitly think through what your goals and requirements are. /**  * Why you should work with me.  * @return high-quality delivery  */ ⦾ I write elegant and efficient code. I believe in concise and readable code over documentation. ⦾ I take pride in delivering solid work and I naturally develop a sense of ownership. Thus, when your project succeeds, it will be a success for me as well. ⦾ I am honest about expectations. Software estimates are hard. Several smaller deliveries are better than a monstrous rollout that might never take place due to lack of funds or lost opportunity. ⦾ I am currently based in Manila, Philippines (GMT +8) but I can easily adapt my schedule to yours and come up with a suitable working arrangement with you as my client. /**  * Other Projects and Interests  * @return diversity  */ Within the past five years, I have started several businesses and projects: Places, a successful vegetarian restaurant and hub for travelers and locals in Kathmandu, Nepal; Four Red Doors, a Scandinavian-style apartment hotel for long-term guests and visitors to Kathmandu; Tiny Carrier (work-in-progress), a crowd-sourced travel and transport startup; and Helter Shelter, an earthquake relief platform focusing on providing temporary shelter for the victims of the 2015 Nepal earthquakes. At the moment I’m working on a social network for dogs written in Elm—largely inspired by my pet dachshund Loki and his online Instagram friends and fans. https://www.linkedin.com/in/mblarsen https://signup.tinycarrier.com

Adrian Kalbarczyk

Full-stack engineer with 12+ years of experience. Also #almosthuman :)

I'm best in theory of programming languages, computer systems and how things work under the hood. A little background I started to code when I was 6, worked with 30+ different programming languages and built my own called ObjectPath available in Python and Javascript. I hold BSc in computer science (theoretical rather than practical curriculum). I've been also building commercial software since 2004. Now I exclusively write code in Javascript on both, front and back-end.

Kevin Bloch

There are no stupid questions. Coding most of my life. I love it when the UX has computers serving people, not the other way around.

My primary motivation is to be useful, usually by getting computers to do what they're good at: the tedious stuff. When we do this as much as is reasonable to implement, we leave us humans more time to enjoy life. I got my real start in software development by proving myself doing exactly that: I took a very boring and error-prone business process, and automated most of it away, leaving a UI that even the most computer-averse users found intuitive. The direct and side benefits of this system are still felt at that business, 13 years later. Freelancer and @toptal talent; open to remote jobs. Tweet me at https://twitter.com/codingthat
