Top Senior Unicorn Developers - Dec 2017

Fullstack Web Craftsman

Passionate about learning, adapting and using new tools, in order to solve the problems of oneself and the others. Focused on web.

Building the web since 1999; maker and breaker of things.

I've created and/or maintain a number of Ruby Gems (Grocer, GitTracker, DumbDelegator, pg_search, minimagick) and share a lot of side-project code on GitHub. I've been building the web since the early 2000's and first started using Ruby in 2007. I've helped a number of teams move from SVN/CVS/TFS to Git. I enjoy helping people along the road from "Testing to Test-First to Test-Driven" (http://stevenharman.net/from-testing-to-test-first-to-test-driven).

Friendly, Pragmatic Programmer - here to help you deliver software that delivers value

I'm a friendly, pragmatic programmer with more than 15 years' professional experience and an excellent track record in delivering quality, maintainable code in a range of sectors. An expert in Java, Ruby and Javascript languages, I'm also an agile specialist, coach and mentor with a huge amount of pair programming experience. I love pairing with developers who I can impart some of my experience to and learn from as well! My preferred approach is test-driven and I'm able to start quickly and help you and your team deliver real value from the first session. I've built busy online shops, international job boards, public sector applications and back-end-only apps for companies in the UK, Canada, the US, Europe and Australia. I also contribute regularly to open source projects.

Ruby on Rails developer with 4 years experience, currently co-founding a 1-year old start-up

I have been interested in Computer Science since I was a kid, when I started taking my first programming lessons. Later I took a degree in Computer Science and I have been learning and exploring new technologies by myself since then. During the last 4 years I have been focused on web development and, especially, with Ruby on Rails, a technology I have been learning in depth through several jobs, both within a company and as a freelancer.

Specialist in saving production servers from certain doom. Linux, NodeJS & AWS are in his daily cup of tea. Lifetime coder and networking ninja, graceful under fire and capable of working in multiple languages.

I put out cyber fires over donuts and camp fires. Polyphasic sleeper serving all timezones! Provider of live-help in real-time via video conference for technologies I have mastered and problems no one else can solve. Writer of re-brandable content management systems (every app has content, does it not?), re-usable apps & APIs, member of Mensa & Intertel, slayer of salmon. Human languages for fun, programming languages for breakfast. I left Detroit in the Dot-Com era to live deep in the north woods, I wear camo every day and kill my own food when I have to. I solve my own problems with grace and efficiency. I'll be happy to solve yours! My three most valuable skills: * Problem solving * Anticipation (of variables and user expectations) * Machine logic These skills, when applied to any challenge, design or technology stack, produce efficient and reliable results. What I enjoy most about Code Mentor: Utilizing my unique skill set to solve a diverse set of challenging critical issues for people in a bind. My most satisfying sessions solve very difficult and unique situations for those who have already exhausted their available human resources. I also really enjoy students who gain enlightenment from the deep insights that I can provide during our sessions. FAQ * No, I am not a robot. But my bots might be one day. * Yes, we have roads & electricity here, you should visit. :) * No, I will not travel anywhere , unless you provide a space ship or parachute. ** POLICIES ** * If you are dissatisfied with my service in any way, I will refund you in full * I do not generally charge for the "show & tell" phase of our session or random digressions * If your request rate is higher than my standard rate, our session rate will match your request rate * I try to make a record of all changes and be able to revert them quickly, but it is your responsibility to archive responsibly * CodeMentor has changed my life in very positive ways and I strictly adhere to their billing policy. All offline work must be paid for through CM at standard or agreed upon rates. * Time management is *not* my specialty. If you need your thing done, it's best to do it live in real-time. ;) ** SUPPORT TIERS ** Level 0: $30/15 - My weak areas / Voodoo+ / Students / First 100 Clients - Easy JS stuff Level I: $50/15 - Standard rate Level II: $65/15 - High pressure environments / General Wizardry + - Advanced AWS (recovery, security, etc) - Docker / Elastic Beanstalk / Lambda - Forensics - Distaster recovery - POS - High-level security - React - Pre-scheduled hours outside 12:00 - 21:00 EST - Advanced design (animation, meteor, 3D, crazy toolkit requirements, WP) Level III: $80/15 - Extreme pressure / Heavy Wizardry / Deep Magic + - Emergency response for mission-critical systems - Dedicated support through to resolution - Level II + Pre-scheduled hours outside 12:00 - 21:00 EST - Jump to top of queue! + http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/go01.html Moments: * 20160707 - My first session! * 20160817 - My 100th session!

CodementorX is a freelance hiring platform uniquely different from other platforms. Freelancers on Codementor function as mentors to less experienced coders, who collectively help curate a list of the most elite mentors. When hiring through CodementorX, I know I’m hiring the best.
