Top Senior Opsworks Developers - Dec 2017

Technologist with 20+ years of experience

With more than 20 years of experience working with heterogeneous computing systems, my experience is as broad as it is deep. I am a creative thinker and I an analytical thinker just the same. My goal is to solve your issue as quickly and efficiently as possible and my reviews tell a tale that simply does not lie. I highly recommend you check them out for yourself. I love helping people and that is the main reason why I am here. I want to help you figure out that pressing problem that you just have not been able to figure out on your own. I am the guy who can help you find answers to tough technical questions when Google simply won't deliver the goods. I am the guy who can fix it for you. Yes, I am. The harder the problem, the better. I always like me a great challenge. But that does not mean that I will not work on your run-of-the-mill server-not-responding, load-balancer-is-failing, running-out-of-EBS-volume-space type of work. I can definitely help you with that too! There is nothing more rewarding than to see the smiles from ear to ear right when I resolve an issue for any of my clients. So bring it on. Mac, Windows, or Linux. It does not matter to me. I will bend the operating system and any applications running inside it with my sheer will and produce results that you can count on. Again, if you have any doubts about that, check my ratings. You just can't make up that kind of track record. Oh, I almost forgot...no fix, no charge. That's right. If I don't fix your issue, you pay absolutely nothing. Zilch. Zero. Nada. What do you have to lose? See why I have been chosen as a Featured Codementor at least twice in the past year. MY POLICIES - All projects come with a free 15-minute evaluation. If a fix is found during evaluation, congratulations, you got yourself a free fix. - If your issue is resolved outside of the 15-minute evaluation period but, for whatever reason the session timer was not started, you agree to compensate me based on my published rate or the rate of your request (whichever is higher) rounded up to the nearest hour. - If your request rate is higher than my published rate, your requested rate will always apply, no exceptions. - There is absolutely no charge if I fail to fix your issue in during a live session. Offline sessions (or Freelance work) are only awarded upon successful project completion, therefore the same guarantee applies to that type of work inherently. - I try to be very careful with any changes that I make to your systems and applications but sometimes, the unthinkable happens and data is lost. You agree that I am not responsible for any data loss of any kind nor am I responsible for any losses that occur as a result of such a data loss. I am not responsible for any data loss. Period. In other words, this is the reason why backups are so important. - I strictly adhere to Codementor's policies. No exceptions. Please don't ask me if I accept <insert name of alternate payment here>. because I simply don't. Codementor's payment policies are in place to protect YOU from getting scammed. It makes no sense for you to want to try to circumvent these protections.

Web Application Developer & Project Manager. Rails, TypeScript/JavaScript, React, AWS, C#

I'm a freelance web application developer with substantial project management expertise. I've developed Rails applications, React interfaces, and deployed them in the cloud. I'm available for coaching, freelance work, debugging, and solution review! I'm generally available between 9AM and 7PM Pacific Time.

Backend engineer with several years of experience. Currently leading a team in Berlin.

My main concern is to build stable, future proof and evolutive backend applications in Java. I can help people bringing down their monolith or just create Java applications from scratch (Spring optinal). Since I worked in a lot of projects so far, I have a clear vision on what's a good or bad architecture, problems that you will run into the future anticipating them and helping you to make a good architectural decision. This is of utmost importance since early decisions tend to stick around for a great deal of time and somehow condition the future development of an application. I've also written an ORM library from scratch to deal with dynamic database schemas. The library was written to be used in a fluent way. The project is nowadays maintained by a company called Feedzai. Link to the project: https://github.com/feedzai/pdb

Product-centric, data-minded, full-stack engineer with a passion for OSS, functional programming, microservices architecture, DevOps automation, and Agile/Lean methodologies

I have designed and executed a variety of products in my professional career, including web-based eCommerce solutions, native and hybrid mobile apps, command-line tools and utilities, APIs and SDKs, single-page applications using JS frameworks (React/Redux, Backbone, Angular), ETL systems, and CI/CD using Docker, just to name a few. I have implemented various greenfield projects using microservices architecture, as well as transitioning existing monoliths to containerized microservices. Having worked in various research settings, I have experience designing and implementing experiments and data analyses, including experience with data mining techniques and neural networks. I have contributed to open-source packages such as [amqp10-link-cache](https://www.npmjs.com/package/amqp10-link-cache), an NPM utility for caching amqp-1.0 links for better performance and more efficient resource usage. I have also created open-source packages, including [zerorest](https://www.npmjs.com/package/zerorest), a framework for writing high-performance ZeroMQ microservices with REST-like interfaces in NodeJS.

Full-stack Developer and DevOp

My name is Dan Pratt (dpratt@innov8d.com). I consider myself a Full-stack Developer and DevOp. I know those are pretty heady buzzwords to hit you with right out of the gate, but I’m being genuine. 
I am truly Full-stack. I have routinely worked front-to-back (HTML/CSS to JS to Backend to DB) on projects, and at points of my career have worked full projects solo because it was the most cost-effective way to get something done. My current preferred stack is React/Reduct, Python/Flask, and Postgres. In the past it was Ruby on Rails, Knockout, Postgres. Before that it was .NET MVC, jQuery, and Microsoft SQL. Before that it was PHP and jQuery and MySQL. So yeah, lots of stacks, lots of change over time.   
I am really just learning how to effectively use React and Redux together, but I am a strong advocate for their use. I find that in every project where we’ve used React, we’ve had more flexibility in the front-end and much easier time refactoring for improvements or due to changing requirements. I would call myself a strong beginner with React/Redux, but I have a very strong background in complex client-side applications and am transitioning comfortably to React/Redux. 
I started my career in IT, managing servers and networks. I focused on performance and security. As I’ve transitioned into application development role I find that these skills are more often than not a strong differentiator for me. I truly understand how to full tech-stack works. I’ve been very pleased with the DevOps movement, along with Continuous Deployment, Continuous Integration and the related technologies. 
Mostly I’m a giant nerd. I like building things. Web apps are what I know how to build. I’d be lost trying to sculpt or build a house or fix a car, but I can build killer web apps. I like to read, I like how it introduces us to some many different possibilities, so many different universes. My partner and I run a book review website called Afterwords (www.afterwords.io) where we write about books. I’m nerdy enough that I have a full-sleeve tattoo comprised of various fantasy characters and elements: A hobbit house, Aslan, The Last Unicorn and the Red Bull, The Eye of Sauron, Smaug, a Wizard, Vampire, and Werewolf, and even a couple of dementors for good measure. 
I’m different. It’s not something I was comfortable with when I was younger, but I view it as my core strength now. I see the world differently.

CodementorX is a freelance hiring platform uniquely different from other platforms. Freelancers on Codementor function as mentors to less experienced coders, who collectively help curate a list of the most elite mentors. When hiring through CodementorX, I know I’m hiring the best.
