ABOUT ME
Before you ask: no, I do not do homework/coursework and nor will I help you cheat in your classes. I am a full stack developer with extensive knowledge of using MongoDB. Both in my personal projects and at work I can perform duties from any of these groups: - Server Admin - DevOps - SEO - DBA - PHP programming - jQuery - HTML/CSS and more... I even have some, but not expert, dabbling in node.js and many other techs.
EXPERTISE
Mongo db expert help MongoDB - 5 years experience
I first used MongoDB back in it's extreme early days. Before moving to Stackoverflow (where I ascertained the gold badge for the MongoDB tag) I was one of the main contributors to the mongodb-user Google group and I still hold even now one of the highest rated post statistics. I have seen MongoDB grow from version 0.8 all the way to version 3.1 and beyond.
Php expert help PHP - 10 years experience
PHP was the first web based language I came to use. I coded my final year project in it. Since then I went into a job which requires expert knowledge in PHP and have been working in that job for about 5 years now. I have coded 90% of my projects in PHP.
No icon CSS - 10 years experience
As a duty of my day-to-day I have had to keep an extensive and comprehensive knowledge base on the subject of CSS. I have knowledge in Bootstrap 2 & 3 and some knowledge in Foundation. I also have extensive knowledge of how to use CSS with JS correctly to produce pixel perfect resizing of layout elements for desktop and mobile platforms.
Html css expert help HTML/CSS - 10 years experience
I have always used HTML. It has been a constant and continual part of my developer life. As such it is no surprise to hear that I have become something of an expert in forming HTML documents. I can work in HTML1-5 and CSS2-3+.
Jquery expert help jQuery - 7 years experience
I first started to use jQuery soon after taking an interest in web development. I went looking for something that made my life easier and there it was. That was about 8 years ago and since then I have grown to use jQuery all the time, for every project. In that time I have produced numerous plugins and used even more, I have also ascertained extensive knowledge in jQuery UI. I have not specifically used jQuery mobile as of yet however, I am always ready to try it out.
Javascript expert help JavaScript - 10 years experience
I use JS for everything on the web. First, I used standard ECMA script but then I decided to couple it with a library, this is when I met jQuery. Since then I have gone form leaps and bounds to using many tools in JS. I have even taken my programming behind the HTML page with node.js. There are a number of tools I have not yet got round to using, such as Angular and sails.js but I have a great desire to use them.
Sql expert help SQL - 10 years experience
From my time using numerous technologies which implement the SQL standard, from MySQL to Oracle and even PostgreSQL I have ascertained an advanced knowledge in the inner workings of SQL and now there are very few queries which allude me and those which do I can quickly ascertain the knowledge of how to perform.
Mysql expert help MySQL - 10 years experience
I used MySQL, not only for my first (and subsequent) web project(s) but also in my day-to-day job managing a e-commerce system. I have designed many a system using the MySQL storage technology from small time to systems requiring replication and other advanced features.
Seo expert help SEO - 5 years experience
Due to Google's handling of some sites I manage, including my day-to-day job site, I have become something of an SEO expert. In fixing the SEO ranking of many of these sites I have had to read literally 1000's of pages worth of Google and third party curated content. I have had to learn how all the latest updates to the Google algorithm have had an impact and what it entails for many sites.
No icon Yii - 3 years experience
(Same as "Yii framework" since these two are essentially the same) My day-to-day job uses Yii. I also use Yii for personal projects these days. I have extensive knowledge in both Yii1 and 2 and my Github profile possess numerous repositories for extensions for them both. For some who use MongoDB with Yii1 they will recognise the need for an extension called: Mongoyii. I created and still maintain that extension, for one.
No icon Yii2 - 2 years experience
My day-to-day job uses Yii2. I also use Yii2 for personal projects these days and my Github profile possess numerous repositories for extensions for Yii2. I have been a contributing part of the Yii2 project since it very first public beta. I consider myself extremely knowledgeable in Yii2.
Amazon expert help AWS - 4 years experience
I use AWS extensively to host many of my personal projects. An example of one project I hosted on AWS was a self scaling cloud formation template with PHP multi-threaded workers for video encoding and distribution for a YouTube type site. I make extensive use of other AWS tools and know how to get the knowledge on those tools I have not to complete the job.
Devops expert help DevOps - 5 years experience
As part of my day-to-day job I regularly have to follow the principles of DevOps since my job just encircles them all. Fortunately I do have colleagues who specialise in certain areas and collaborate with me so I am not self reliant on my own testing and QA (otherwise it would be like an author proof reading their own book). However, my day-to-day job has made me extremely versatile and capable of following the DevOps approach to software development.
