  • О себе

    Меня зовут Родион Быков, я веб-разработчик и руководитель проектов. Профессионально - я "фрилансер", т.е. выполняю заказы на создание веб-приложений и веб-сайтов. В основном использую Adobe Coldfusion и Railo в связке с MySQL или MS SQL на платформах Windows и Linux. Для мобильных приложений я использую Apache (Adobe) Flex, AIR и PhoneGap.

    Приобрел 9 лет опыта работы в веб-разработке на Adobe Coldfusion, Railo, Adobe Flex/AIR и PHP/MySQL. Интересуюсь и занимаюсь в основном бизнес-приложениями, веб-сайтами для бизнеса и legacy-системами. В настоящее время интересуюсь мобильной разработкой на AS3/Flex под устройства с поддержкой Adobe AIR, а также активно изучаю jQuery Mobile и Sencha Touch. При разработке работаю с Windows, и использую Linux в облаке как серверную платформу.

    Я стараюсь активно делиться своими знаниями, давая доклады на конференциях и юзер-группах; являюсь со-основателем Coldfusion User Group Ukraine, регулярно пишу на технические темы и участвую в организаций встреч программистов. 

    Если у вас есть проект, для которого вы ищете Coldfusion-разработчика или менеджера - буду рад вам помочь. Из планов на будущее - хотел бы руководить группой разработчиков - в небольшом стартапе или отделе большой фирмы. Хотел бы выступить как "евангелист" Adobe Coldfusion в Украине и зарубежом.

    Ключевые слова: Actionscript, Adobe, AJAX, AIR, Amazon, BlazeDS, Bluedragon, Cairngorm, Coldfusion, Coldspring, CSS, CFML, CFScript, ExtJS, Flex, Fusebox, FW/1, Hibernate, HTML, Java, Javascript, jQuery, MachII, Mate, MS SQL, MVC, MySQL, OOP, ORM, PHP, Railo, Sencha, Swiz, TransferORM.
