Top Senior Python Developers of July 2017

Founder of a Ruby on Rails consultancy, 18 years of full-stack development in multiple languages

Howdy! If you work with me, you'll find that I'm patient, a good listener, and am great at tracking down annoying bugs. I used to ran one of the largest Ruby on Rails shops in the world. I started as a Rails Engineer, shot up the ranks, and eventually ran the company as Partner and de-facto CEO. Before and after, I've worked as a freelance full-stack developer in a wide variety of languages. I fell in love with programming in 1997 and have been loving it ever since.

Team leading full stack developer with a focus on javascript based stacks.

I am a full stack software engineer and entrepreneur with between 1 and 10 years professional experience working with the technologies listed. I love helping other people become better at what they're doing and have been doing so both online and offline for many years now. Besides mentoring I run a small boutique style software development firm that is specialised in crossing the barrier between cloud, desktop, mobile and physical applications. My areas of expertise are the general syntax and usage of languages. Effective, correct and appropriate use of software design patterns. Defining algorithms. Handling (possibly large) amounts of data effectively and presenting results to the end-user in a clear and timely manner. Designing and managing the infrastructure to drive these results. Working with stakeholders to design, budget, and plan software development projects and their architecture, turning business objectives into measurable goals. Planning for and scaling with growth. Troubleshooting and resolving technical crisises and finding and remediating their root causes. Defining and leading (agile) development processes and monitoring their performance. Measuring, predicting, providing insights into and managing risk factors in software development projects. Experimental projects and research into, analysis of and reporting on new technologies/software development techniques.

Full Stack Developer

I design, build and scale high-performance web applications using an open-source technology stack. I work primarily with Django and Python to create scaleable cloud backends and React.js to build beautiful and crisp single-page Javascript applications for web and mobile.

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.

Friendly, patient coach for Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Go, Data Science, Big Data, AI, Blockchain, Chatbots, React / Angular / Native. Technical co-founder of VC backed big data startup.

Hey all - I've been developing web applications for 12 years and love teaching, whether it is your first time, you're looking to pick up a new skill, or keep up on the latest technologies. I'm happy to advise also on the best courses to take, how to establish your career, what technologies to learn next, and how to get your first application or company started.

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.

Experienced tech lead, full stack mobile & web engineer, great communicator

Full stack mobile & web engineer having 15 years of experience. I'm a very effective communicator thanks to my experience of working with clients as a freelancer. Having been the CTO of 3 companies (two of them my own startups), I practiced code reviewing and mentoring a lot. As a result of working for 6 years at Nokia Research as a research engineer, then 3 years as a freelancer and also later on becoming the CTO of 3 companies, I'm very good at prototyping, figuring out the initial architecture for new services and general problem solving. The technologies I'm using in the past few years and the ones I'm strongest at are: python, django, java, android and javascript. I also have a strong interest in and can help with writing maintainable and well designed, high quality code, creating well designed APIs, defining best practices for a development team.

NOTE 1: Please note that if your language doesn't appear in my tags in my headline above, I probably don't know it! NOTE 2: I do not accept requests from those competing in algorithms competitions or want to solve problems requiring advanced knowledge of algorithms (HackerRank, TopCoder, etc.). Please refrain from these requests and look for another mentor. --- - Ph.D. (2013) - Electrical & Computer Engineering, Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada: http://www.ee.ryerson.ca/ - Professional Engineer (P.Eng.)
