Help with software projects

Do you need help defining and buying software projects? Or bringing new software skills into your team?

I can help you in

  • developing software: backend development (Python), modern Javascript apps (React, d3.js), iOS apps (Swift), data science projects (Python, Keras, Scipy), devops (AWS)
  • defining and scoping your initial software project. Small enough scope ensures success and keeps costs down.
  • evaluating software project offers. Technical expert's opinion helps you to choose the right provider.
  • teaching your team relevant skills from server management to data analysis to automatic testing to iOS app development. I don't provide just slideware but working software that helps your team to get up to speed with new skills.
  • interviewing technical candidates and assessing their skills.

I have done all of the above successfully for several companies. I'm currently available for short consultation projects ranging from a couple of hours to a few days.
