Coding / Development
My preferences are:
I have some experience programming in Python 2.7-3.5, Pascal, and Turbo Pascal (though I doubt any client would request the latter two). I can, however, pick up any language as requested.
SOLID principles and Object-Oriented design have become a good foundation for me, along with the PSR coding standards from PHP-FIG (when coding in PHP). I'm fairly picky when it comes to coding to a standard -- there should always be a coding standard for any code base, even if it's a small project.
Of late, I'm a convert to Test Driven Development, and have been working with that strategy (and updating previous projects whenever possible).
Most of my experience has been with Git / GitHub, but I can learn others as needed. In a pinch, Google Drive and Dropbox can work for smaller projects, though I tend to prefer the ability to look at commits and changes in code over time.
I've worked with:
- Various Google APIs, like:
- Google Drive
- Google Maps
- Weather APIs
- and custom APIs
Any other API (if reasonably well-designed or documented) should be quick for me to pick up as needed.
Integrating with your Team
I've developed with a couple of teams (and don't mind doing so), but usually work alone.
If I'm working with a team, or on a smaller section of a larger code-base:
- utilizing a repository is a Very Good Idea™
- I'd prefer to at least follow TDD (Test-Driven Development) practices
- I can code interfaces / adapters to make integration with my work easier
- I can provide feedback on overall structure and design
Ultimately, my involvement comes down to the project and whatever you have in mind, though I don't mind looking over code or working with others as needed.
