This is a small call for help. I am looking for work, and need your help.
Contract or permanent. Preferably (but not exclusively or even at all) telecommute. I can code, design, architect software, consult in any of these (and dev process/team issues) and teach a variety of Java, OO Design and web development topics, and would be happy to do any/all of these. I additionally have some experience doing system administration work. I work in Linux/Unix environments and know next-to-nothing about Windows.
I've done web stuff, and loads of backend "heavy lifting" coding where reliability, scalability, etc. are important. I am not good at quick'n'dirty. Skeptical of the value of buzzwords and big-arse frameworks.
Check out my "business" website for more details about me and what I've done in the past.
R (as they say) "highly neg".
If you have anything suitable, or know of anything that fits, please drop me a line.
I will be in Cape Town and environs next week, so an ideal time to get together and chat about possibilities and opportunities.
