Top Senior Unix Developers - Sep 2017
Software Developer at Subvisual
Full-Stack | Championing Innovation
I have accumulated 3 years and 10 years of experience in enterprise and freelance respectively. At the beginning of any project, my end goal is to build robust applications with error-handling and tolerance in mind. After more than 10 years in this industry, it is people's challenging and innovative ideas that sustains my passion. Trust is the most expensive currency today and I continue to create that by providing honest suggestions especially when it comes to my role in your project. Equipped with rich experience in React, Angular, Aurelia for front-end and NodeJS, MVC, ExpressJS for back-end, I am not in favor of one over another. I strongly believe the best language is the one that's most suitable for each project.
These past years, I helped setup a PaaS company from scratch while living in Chiang Mai, I contributed to a fin-tech company in Sanlitun, the vibrant heart of Beijing, and more recently experienced working in the scope of a Fortune 500 OTA company in Bangkok. I've been working with a lot of different technologies so my help spectrum is wide. I'm currently working with Node.js, React.js and React Native on a daily basis; these are definitely my "forte"s if you need a pair programming session. More information available on my LinkedIn.
Jack of all trades, master of some
I've been writing code or reading about software nearly every day for about 20 years. I've been working full-time as a professional software engineer for 12. Software and hardware are super interesting and fun for me, but what I really enjoy is helping other people to learn. I've put together a wiki with some articles and lots of links and resources for people who want to learn to code, learn more about particular topics or up their game: https://github.com/revmischa/learn-software-engineering/wiki Not only do I have knowledge and experience in specific areas such as databases, web applications, security, networking, Linux, C, and plenty more, I also have real-world experience building commercial products and explaining complex technical concepts in straightforward English to non-technical people.
Maths/finance geek, Python developer and testing obsessive
I am a financial developer who has worked in Python, C, C# , Java, C++, Perl and other languages. I have a good understanding of mathematical aspects of pricing and calibration as well as algorithms and program performance, I currently spend most of my life working in Python, which I love.
Expert software developer and rockabilly bassist
I love building apps that truly work well and exceed customers' expectations. I'm constantly learning and reading to improve myself. My personal interests are open data and public health; I'm the creator of several projects used by thousands for accessing the law and government health reports. I cannot give legal advice via codementor, but I can answer general questions about licensing, copyright, trademarks, and other intellectual property.
