Ivan's profile photo

I have over 20 years of hands-on experience as a software developer, interface designer, systems analyst and business consultant. I possess strong skills in a number of development, markup and presentation languages, including PHP, Javascript, HTML, CSS, Visual Basic, VBS, C, C++, Perl, Shell, AWK, and SQL.

I also have extensive and real world business experience with a number of database management systems, including MYSQL, Postgress, Oracle, SQL Server, Ingress, Access, Universe, and even Pick.

I'm an outspoken advocate of the importance of software usability, web standards-driven and accessible design, and I strongly believe that user interfaces should be intuitive and simple to use.

I have personally written a number of Wordpress plugins over the years and have contributed to several popular Wordpress projects on Github, including Woocommerce, Formidable Forms, Members, Sensei and Ninja Forms. From time to time, I also contribute to the web design and development community on Stack Overflow and help Upwork improve their platform for clients and freelancers.

I live and work in Melbourne's beautiful Yarra Valley, and in my spare time I'm into fishing, photography, music from the 70s, rustic cooking, good wine, and I apparently know "way too much" about movies.

Before we can work together, please understand that as a professional web developer, I can't help you with "urgent jobs" or take on projects that are smaller than a day. I aim for long-term relationships, not a quick buck.
