I’m Richard Soares, the author of Sunday-Edition.
I’m a freelance software developer with more than 20 years’ professional experience in web development. I specialise in creating tailor-made, web-based systems that can help your business run like clockwork.
I have spent most of my career as a proficient and responsive Web Developer and Designer creating and maintaining innovative digital solutions that are a mix of web-based user interfaces, middle-tier services, and emerging front-end technologies. I have strong problem-solving skills, and an eagerness to learn.
I consider myself a global full-stack developer having the capability of setting up LAMP stack servers under several Linux distributions (Ubuntu, CentOS among others), with Apache or Nginx Web Servers, MySQL Relational Database, and PHP5, including modules and the likes. I manage code repositories using GIT (or Subversion) with cloud services from Amazon AWS. RESTful architecture and API design are just a few other benefits of my well-rounded set of skills and real-world experience.
Being the best possible programmer is my primary goal and interest.
My favorite testimonial about me – “Hey Richard, It was nice talking to you. It’s so refreshing to talk to someone like yourself who is so technically savvy but has a personality outside of that; I get a lot of people who only know how to speak to a computer.”
