Skills

These are the main skills that I am proficient in, in picture format. If you are looking for a skill that is not listed, feel free to contact me.

Front End

For the front end, I write a lot of JavaScript to produce smooth animations for a lovely feel or complex algorithms to solve a complicated task. I usually write and style with jQuery and Bootstrap, but these are there to make it easier, rather than being essential, and can transform the code.

Back End

Behind the scenes, I often use PHP, but, more often than not, I just write pure HTML. Currently, the trend is to use APIs for backend code and call them with AJAX or jQuery. Most APIs that I create are in Python and it's nice to host them on AWS. Database work is done in MySQL or MariaDB (or NoSQL), but most SQL languages are almost identical, making the skills transferrable.

Infrastructure

A beautiful and functional website is useless if no one can see it, so setting up the best infrastructure is essential. With my AWS certifications, I find it easy to set up hosting on AWS and this can be done serverlessly with S3 or with necessary scaling in Elastic Beanstalk. AWS provide a myriad of services for backend support and you only pay for what you use.

PeoplePerHour

PeoplePerHour is the platform that I use for my freelancing. They have a wide range of features that make freelancing easier for buyers and freelancers. These include an escrow account, which keeps your money safe until work is complete, a rating system so that you can find the best freelancers and communications features so that we can keep in touch during work. Have a look at my profile to see some of my previous work.
