Top Shell Developers of May 2017

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.
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

Geek and Entrepreneur
I write, nurture and love clean, testable architectures. Language doesn't matter. I eat two technology stacks and a Linux meal a day.
I write, nurture and love clean, testable architectures. Language doesn't matter (PHP/C/Rust/Golang/Typescript/Python/Java). I eat two technology stacks and a Linux meal a day. How is that possible? After 15 years of programming, you start to not be in love with your toys anymore like a kid, and treat them as tools instead. What starts to matter after reaching a certain level is expressing ideas with code, not the code itself. It's the ideas that you share with your collegues, as well with the machine, that solve real-world problems that matter. Tools are just that, and in our area of expertise, they change over time quite rapidly. What stays relatively constant are the terminology, the algorithms, and the train of thoughts for solving a specific problem, given a specific scenario.
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
