Top Scripting Developers of May 2017
Polyglot developer with an obsession for modularity
I'm a self taught developer, and ever since my first job, given enough time at a workplace I've always become the guy who people go to when they're stuck, and I've enjoyed doing the same on various online communities. I've always found those interactions very rewarding, I find it much easier to apply myself in a focused way to helping other people solve their problems. I really believe in the "teach a man to fish" cliche. If you are a student or need help working on open source, I offer a 50% rate reduction. Note that I will not solve exercises/assignments for you, I am only willing to help you to solve them yourself. Finally, I suggest you check out this great write up by Adam Goldman, another mentor on this site, which has some great tips on how better utilize this service https://www.codementor.io/adamgold/get-the-most-out-of-your-session-5c5iho6ns

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

I create utility belts for freedom.
Hey there, my name is Toby. I eat insights for breakfast. After breakfast, I go and create things that help people experience more freedom in life. Let me tell you what happens behind the scenes: I actually create things using technology and code. I always have, since I was 12 years old. That's why I consider myself fit for duty on this fine platform. Bending the Matrix to my will always excited me. I know what it is like to struggle with technology, to spend hours searching for solutions to a problem. I know what it is like to feel the excitement when something works. I have been there. I believe that technology is an invaluable tool on your journey and I want to help you make the most of it. Growth never stops, this is a fundamental truth of life. I consider us equals, because you know something I don't, and I know something you don't. I am looking forward to helping you! Live long and prosper, Toby
