EXPERTISE
Ruby expert help Ruby - 8 years experience
As a builder of Ruby on Rails apps, I have huge amount of experience with the Ruby language. I also use Ruby for writing one-off command-line utilities when the need arises.

Any HTML is a given based on my background. I use (and abuse) HTML on a daily basis in my work.
Php expert help PHP - 6 years experience
I have not worked with PHP in the last couple of years but have worked with it extensively in years prior. PHP is a bit less common for new apps but I can navigate my way through most PHP applications. Most commonly, I have had to build, configure, and maintain WordPress sites on a regular basis which does help to keep my sharp.

I have been using C# since the earliest days of the Microsoft.NET framework (1.0 and 2.0) and have used it on and off-again throughout that time. I know the language well.

Plenty of background writing and debugging C++. I'm more of a C guy but understand the fundamentals needed to make C++ projects hum from the ground up.
Sql expert help SQL - 15 years experience
I have worked with writing and maintaining SQL, ranging from custom one-off queries, query optimization, to stored procedures and functions, to database structure and design. This is also combined with plenty of experience ORM frameworks that automatically generate SQL.

No icon .NET - 16 years experience
Have worked with the .NET framework since 1.0.
Jquery expert help jQuery - 8 years experience
Building web-apps almost necessitates jQuery every time. I use jQuery on a very regular basis and continue to do so.
Mysql expert help MySQL - 16 years experience
I've been working with MySQL for many large version iterations of the open source project. It is (usually, not always) a go-to database choice for new projects. I know it well and use (or have used) a vast majority of its features and functions.
Seo expert help SEO - 8 years experience
I've been tuning sites for SEO regularly. One highlight is optimizing Poll Everywhere (polleverywhere.com) to help that business become the #1 text message voting & polling service in the world.

Have been using ASP.Net since the very early days of the framework. Unfortunately, that means I still know WebForms....

Plenty of CSS re-jiggering and design experience. I've had to implement proper floating, columnar layouts, responsive designs, etc.
No icon Objective-C - 6 years experience
I've developed desktop Mac and iOS iPhone and iPad apps over the years and so have worked a great deal with Objective-C.
No icon Ajax - 10 years experience
A staple of any web app development.
No icon XML - 16 years experience
XML has been a format type and document structure for a large variety of projects of mine. It's a staple and even though I prefer to use JSON, XML crops up again and again in different places.
No icon Xcode - 6 years experience
XCode is my preferred IDE (as it is for most) for Objective-C/Mac/iOS development. I've configured XCode a great deal for custom build automation, working through Apple Developer account certificate nightmares, adding plugins and extensions to auto-format code to standards, and much, much more.
No icon Cocoa - 6 years experience
Like Objective-C, Cocoa goes hand-in-hand with my experience building desktop applications for the Mac and mobile apps on iPhone or the iPad.
No icon Web applications - 16 years experience
I've been building web sites, and full-fledged web-apps ever since around 1999. As can be seen from my other skills, I've worked with a lot of tools, frameworks, libraries, and languages.
No icon Makefile - 10 years experience
Configured and re-jiggered Makefiles until the cows come home. This is standard issue for any Unix/Linux-based development.
No icon Uikit - 5 years experience
This is natural given my experience building iOS apps over the years. I've worked with most UIKit widgets and objects.
No icon Analytics - 2 years experience
Performed a wide variety of SEO improvements for sites, including my own prior company, Poll Everywhere (polleverywhere.com) to increase traffic, PageRank, and ultimately arrive at a better site structure. Google Analytics was our "go-to" tool to look at our changes over time to see if our improvements really resulted in more traffic that we cared about and, ultimately, paid conversions.
No icon Web development - 10 years experience
I've built many web applications for private companies internally and externally-focused applications for the likes of Motorola, as a co-founder of Poll Everywhere, as a software development team leader at Paylocity.com, and most recently as a consultant with One Six Solutions.
No icon Databases - 18 years experience
I have been using relational databases for the most part but in recent years I have relied on NoSQL/alternative databases on different projects. Extensive experience in relational database design, structure, and optimization.

No icon Continuous delivery - 8 years experience
I've setup a ton of projects in automated build, automated test, and even automated deployments. The tools usually range from some combination of off-the-shelf products, to custom command-line jobs, cron jobs, and open source tools.
No icon Software development - 18 years experience
My entire career is focused on building software that works, lasts, and is hopefully easy to maintain and extend. I love software building and enjoy using my talents to share with others.
