|Highlights:||A programmer's overall approach and asthetic, or coding philosophy, is very important in determining the quality of their finished product. In my coding practice the three principles that I focus on are: value, simplicity, and efficiency.
Creating value for my clients is essential to my work. If a client is not the end user of the application I am creating, which is usually the case, then in turn, my goal is to create an application that will allow them to create value for their customers or users.
The simplest solutions is usually best. Unecessary complexity, especially in code, makes maintenance and modification more difficult, increases development time, and makes it more difficult to locate and eliminate bugs.
The greatest efficiency benefit that I offer my clients is that I design and implement projects independently. Having one highly skilled programmer create an application is vastly more efficient than employing a team of less skilled programmers. Some projects are clearly too large for one individual to handle, but if the scope of a project is within an individual's capabilities, it is far better to have it handled by one person than a team.
The second most important aspect of coding efficiency is using existing code whenever possible. I am highly familiar with the open source code environment, and I will always try to use available code.
|Work terms:||I can be paid by any whatever means is most convenient for the employer. If you do not use escrow, then your project will be hosted on my development server, and will only be delivered after payment.
I am available for contact by phone, email, or skype. Any of these methods are fine. I usually prefer to discuss projects by phone before getting started.
My typical working hours are Monday through Friday, 10 am - 7 pm PST.
I believe it setting clear guidelines and specifications for the product to be delivered. I work with my clients to establish these specifications and make sure that they are met. Large projects have a tendency to bring up unforeseeable circumstances. I expect this to happen, and take it into account when establishing the specifications for a product. If changes to a specification are required, I discuss the issues with my clients, and provide them with fair and reasonable options to make these changes.
I guarantee that my products will operate according to the specifications established for them. Any bugs in software that result in the failure of a product to meet its specifications will be fixed without question and free of charge.
