I am currently available for part-time contract work.
I've been developing on the Twitter API since February 2009. I wanted a specific set of features in a client so I wrote my own. I've since abandoned it as others have appeared that I liked better. I developed this site in mid 2009 just for fun. Since then, I've run multiple sponsored / off site promotions for major venders and marketing agencies using the TweetsWin backend I developed and it works really well. I know Twitter, I know the API. I've seen trends work and promotions fail and I can help make sure yours does not. This site has a following of over 7,500 users and it's growing daily.
The majority of my experience has been custom development, but I've done numerous CMS and blog installs and customizations. I can help you with Geeklog, Wordpress, Joomla, and more. I've done Facebook development as well though it has been some time ago, I have setup apps and worked with Facebook Connect.
I've been writing code on a full-time, professional basis since 2001. I've changed languages a few times since then, right now I'm focused on PHP5. I've been using PHP since 2001. I've worked with MVCnPHP, CakePHP, and ZF. I have experience with Propel, Creole, and Doctrine. I grew up using CVS but also use SVN daily and I am comfortable with GIT and Mercurial among others. I've been involved with numerous projects ranging from startup to enterprise level. I have worn system administration, networking, database administration, and design hats and I do sometimes contract out for some of that as well, but development is my passion. I've worked in teams, lead teams, and worked alone, I don't have a preference as long as I can sling code. My mentors right out of college were some of the best people I've ever worked with and I attribute my success to their passion and guidance.
I'm based in Central Iowa.
