You've got to the right spot if you are looking for custom built online application.

I have solid experience in interface and usability design, database and systems architecture, process and workflow visualisation, security and management to make your online application a success.

I can examine and assess your current website and how it is performing, discuss its effectiveness in fulfilling your goals and show you how it could be improved.

My portfolio has more than thirteen years of experience in a diverse range of technologies with an emphasis on web applications development. Worked both independently and managed teams of developers in high-profile, fast-paced and challenging environments, and have a proven ability to deliver high quality solutions.

I am best in and thus prefer to work with following technologies and standards:

  • ColdFusion, Railo
  • MS SQL (T-SQL), MySQL, MongoDB
  • Memcached, Ehcache
  • SOLR, Lucene, Sphinx
  • Javascript, AJAX, jQuery
  • HTML5, CSS, Bootstrap
  • AWS (EC2, S3, SQS), ActiveMQ
  • API (Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Paypal, Google, Yahoo)
  • IIS, Apache, Nginx
  • Windows, OSX, Unix (Ubuntu, CentOS)
  • CFBuilder, Eclipse, Git, SVN
  • SDLC/Agile, TDD/MXUnit, JIRA/Confluence

It is easy for me to quickly learn new programming languages, tools and concepts if required.
