|Highlights:||Web application development and support is what I do. People come to me when they need the job done quickly, done to a high standard, and done right the first time.
With 16 years experience in the field of Web application development, and similar experience in Unix system administration and various other forms of programming, I bring a wealth of diverse experience to the table. I round out this experience with my creative flair for problem solving and a down-to-earth sense of thoroughness.
I have developed unique and workable solutions for many clients over the years, ranging from small one-off solutions to large and complex systems. No problem is too small or too large for my consideration. I communicate comprehensively, at all stages of a project, which offers you the comfort of always knowing what stage your project is up to, and offers me the security of knowing that we're working towards a common goal.
|Work terms:||My preferred payment method is SafePay Escrow for new clients. Depending on the size and duration of the project, partial release of funds at pre-determined intervals based on project milestones may be requested.
I like to insist on regular communication with clients. My preferred method of communication is via Guru.com or by email, but phone, skype, and IM (AIM & MSN) is available too. I provide regular updates to clients and request that they are involved in each stage of the project.
Due to the variety of time zones around the world, I do not offer my availability during set hours. I am however available at most times for emergencies, and am nearly always available at least once during any 24 hour period, which ensures rapid turnaround of questions/responses.
The nature of software development means bug-free applications are very difficult to guarantee. I offer free bug fixes after application delivery for the lifetime of the application, provided that neither the application nor any dependent component of the hosting environment has been modified in any way, and that the application is being used in the way and within the bounds for which it was originally intended.
