Services

Database Management/Optimization

Having worked closely with a wide variety of RDBMS I find my personal preference to mysql, to many of the big companies are tied into using the Wrong tools for the job. Having said that understanding the sql standards and what customizations are required for different vendors, weather it be SQL server, Oracle, DB2 or mySQL, having the right background goes a long way.


Front End Design

I like to think I have the skills required to integrate front end useable and visually pleasing GUI's to any kind of serverside technology required. With extensive knowledge in javascript and the frameworks such as jquery, I have a good knack of creating seamless ajax apps.

Creating mapping mashups using tools such as Openlayers, Mapnik and OSM are also a strong point. For Larger blog, sites I like to dabble with Wordpress and for Applications I use codeigniter or any other MVC model framework going.


Server Side

A broad understanding of Object oriented workhorse langauges such as java, php and perl and python. Cross server technologies and protocols such as soap, snmp, ssh, telnet. Working with variety of server OS including, linux, windows server and HP-UX. Web Server configuration such as Apache, JBOSS, tomcat, jetty.
