OFFER TO VOLUNTEER - Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Scientific and Open Source projects

I'm an engineer with experience working for startups doing web development. Currently I'm one of the Community TAs for the Startup Engineering class and for the Machine Learning class at Coursera (Stanford).

I'm looking for opportunities to volunteer, preferably Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence or Scientific projects. Being a Community TA has been a great experience and an opporunity to get a deep understanding on these topics. I'm eager to contribute to scientific, open source projects and the like.

Drop me a line: ccarpenterg@gmail.com

SEEKING FREELANCER - DESIGNER - Boise, Idaho. Remote work is fine.

I'm a designer and author who now creates training courses on design. I’m hiring a freelance designer to help create video tutorials on Photoshop and design for a new course.

To apply, plan a design design tutorial (with a sample PSD to work from) to be recorded by someone else. It should teach a specific design concept or Photoshop technique and include a simple PSD that can be used as an example in the tutorial.

Here are a few examples:

  * Properly nesting rounded rectangles
  * Designing an icon
  * Understanding white space
  * Working with the pen tool in Photoshop
  * Understanding layers in Photoshop
You are delivering the example PSD and a rough script (paragraph or outline format is fine) for a 2-3 minute video. To be clear, I am not looking for the video itself, but everything prepared in advance so that someone else could sit down and record the screencast.

At first this is to help with a full length video course, but the future plan is to build a video training site. So there will be regular work on an ongoing basis.

This should be obvious, but do not plagiarize. If your example is inspired by someone else, link to them.

Pay can be hourly or per tutorial.

Apply here: http://nathanbarry.com/jobs/designer/

Slightly off topic but would the video training site have content on writing/authoring? If so, I can't wait.

No, this would be on design. My book Authority already covers that topic pretty well.


I'm a recent graduate with a PhD in Physics. If you're building a neutron beamline, then I'm the guy you're looking to hire. Of course, if you're building a neutron beamline, we've probably already talked, so let's discuss what else I can offer.

I've spent the past eight years working as the jack of all trades on our project. I've written byte level servers, hardware interfaces, GUI control systems, API's, and data analysis code. Lots of data analysis code. While I might not necessarily be familiar with your technology stack, I'm used to that. I've had days where I've needed to work with Eight different langauges, from Labview to IDL to Haskell to Scheme to SPEC.

If you have a problem, I'd love to take a crack at it.

SEEKING FREELANCERS - NYC or Bay Area preferred - Remote is okay

Lambda is a talent agency for freelance developers and designers. We help you find clients, negotiate for higher rates, and take care of the business side of freelancing.

  - Exceptional talent only: $100/hr minimum rate.
  - No recruiters or spam. We're developers too and we only match consultants with projects that fit their expertise and interest.
  - Serious clients only: Wanna hear about a disruptive social network for cats that "just needs a coder"? Neither do we.
  - Freelancers with side projects or startups are especially welcome!
If that's appealing, you can read more and sign up at: http://getlambda.com/

We've posted about this on HN a few times and have been amazed by the response. I apologize in advance if it takes a while for us to get back to you -- we interview everyone personally and are still ramping up the process.

Right now, we're particularly looking for NYC Rails devs and SF iOS devs, but anyone else based in the US is still welcome to apply!

Its a pity you are only looking for US based devs. Will that change anytime?

Not sure when it changes, but the usual explanation (by Americans themselves) of this US-only remote thing is that they afraid of dealing with the people who are not easily suable.

In our case, the explanation is even simpler. Most of our work is for local devs, where the clients prefer to be able to meet the freelancer face-to-face occasionally. Even for a project where most of the work will be done remotely, kick-off meetings and in-person collaboration is still valuable.

Of course it is valuable, but why limit the choices a priori? Let your clients choose by themselves, maybe some of them will prefer to sacrifice face-to-face meetings in exchange for finding the best candidate...

In general, with marketing, you need to keep your Message simple. As in drop-dead simple. Especially when you're veyr small.

That's why you see food trucks offering tacos, sushi, or organic chocolate-and-truffle-oil-suffused hempseed brownies, respectively... but food trucks offering all 3 of these, not so often.

With recruiting it's kind of the same. Also, out-of-towners have different filtering / recommendation / communication needs, and take different payscales, also

So they're probably just applying the 80-20 rule, and catering to what their known client base seems to ask for most.

SEEKING WORK - SF Bay Area / Remote - Long or Short Term Consultation

I am a Product Designer (Interaction Design/UI/UX). I have experience relevant to products from iOS & Android to Large Web Platforms. I typically consult on or perform the following:

  * Product management - strategy, best practices, team building, implementation.

  * Product design - strategy, best practices, team building, process, interaction design, ui design, iconography.

  * Front end dev - I tend to build most things I spec at the very least to a minimum in which there is no chance of fidelity loss from prototype to final product. I've also setup processes for growing teams and established best practices for new hires.

SEEKING WORK - Remote only. (Based in Tel-Aviv.)

My name is Ram Rachum, and I’m a freelance software developer. I help businesses solve their problems using software, mostly by developing web-based applications. I work mainly in Python and Django.

On the technical level, it’s my responsibility to have high problem-solving skills; to design a good architecture for each project I work on; to implement that architecture quickly and effectively; and to be experienced with the languages and frameworks that I’m using, so when a problem comes up, I don’t have to spend 2 hours to research and solve it but rather just 5 minutes, because I’ve seen that problem dozen of times before.

On the project-management level, it’s my responsibility to communicate clearly and honestly with the client and my collaborators on the project; to understand exactly what the client wants to build as we plan together how to build it; to always keep the client updated about progress; to have an owner mentality and make decisions with the best interest of the client in mind; to own up to mistakes when they happen; and to always get feedback as early as possible from the client and from the users, so we know we’re not wasting time going into blind alleys, and we’re spending time only on features that the users are happy with. My email is ram@rachum.com . Send me an email and say hello.

SEEKING WORK - Barcelona area or Seattle area, REMOTE preferred

Email: webmaster[at]bahaidream[dot]com LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=237407934

I'm a software developer with 10 years of professional experience, although I started coding when I was 10.

In the past I've worked as a freelance full stack web developer and as a full stack developer, analyst, ux and ui designer. For the last 3 years I've been working on deploying IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management and integrating it with other enterprise applications and legacy systems. This involved development but also writing technical documentation, requirement gathering and business analysis.

I have worked individually and in teams. I've done technical work and also discussed and planned with stakeholders and clients. I have worked in several countries in small and big organizations. During the last six months I've only worked remotely.

Technologies: C#, Java, PHP, Python, Lua, JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, XML, Tivoli Platform, PL/SQL, MSSQL, MySQL Other skills: UX, UI design, system integration, business analysis, software architecture.

I have Spanish citizenship but my wife is from Seattle and we are considering moving there. I'm in Seattle for a month in case you want to meet up and talk.


Located in Albuquerque, seeking a remote position with flexible-ish hours for 20 to 25 hours a week.

- +5 years professional web dev experience (PHP, Python, Javascript). I excel at large sized backend projects, but happy to take care of the frontend as well. Past experience includes anything from Magento, Wordpress, Zend, Kohana, Silex to Flask, PyQT, etc. etc. to large custom “from scratch” applications, intranet apps, etc. Personal pride and interest in best practices security wise.

- +8 years running Linux exclusively. Very comfortable around a command line. Happy to set up, secure, troubleshoot and maintain any server.

- Fluent in English, Dutch and Spanish (euro expat with permanent residency in the US).

- Well read, well traveled, enjoy a multi-disciplinary approach to life. Former yoga and meditation instructor. Good sense for aesthetics (although not a designer, a good natural talent to help with developer to designer communications and UX/UI input). Currently I'm enrolled in a welding program full time (not a lot of theory outside of lab/practice/fabrication sessions).

Looking preferably for a small team or a single position, as well as something long term or at least 3-4 months, not the job hopper type.

Happy to chat over Skype, provide code samples and/or do a test run together.

SEEKING WORK - Remote OK - British developer based in Tel Aviv, Israel.

I love working in Haskell and Scala, and I also have experience with Django. I've done some data analysis work in Python and as a maths student I became a dab hand at data modelling. I'm a fast learner if you need someone to work with a mature code base, and if you need to get an MVP out the door it wouldn't be my first time doing that either.

Contact me at nathan.cook@gmail.com for more information.

SEEKING WORK (remote or DFW, TX area only)

I just ended 2 years with media search engine start up whose stack was based on Django, Python, and Apache Solr. I spent most of my time creating the backend API to communicate with Youtube, Hulu, Itunes, and other sites. I first created it in python (Tornado), but the latency was apparently too high so I rewrote it in Go.

I also wore a devops hat and wrote bash scripts to provision vagrant VMs and setup our continuous deployment/integration with Jenkins CI. All this being integrated with hipchat of course. All of our code was tested, and can bet I took advantage of REST (HATEOAS namely made problems simpler).

I also learned to have a bit more pragmatism and profile my code, instead of polishing every piece as if it were a diamond ;)

Recently I'm loving Haskell the most, but I've always had a soft spot for schemes and lisps. Clojure is something I'm eventually going to be hacking on.

Ideally I'd like something to do with functional programming, but I still enjoy doing web development and using python.

In the past I have written in: HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript, Perl, C (small amounts), C++ (even less), Visual Basic, C#, Java, Ruby, Python, Cython, Go, Racket, Chicken Scheme, Nimrod, Lisp, Racket, Haskell, and Elm.

I consider myself a full stack software engineer, and also partly a hobbyist sysadmin, for now mainly interested in mobile apps and their back end. I'm also the (not so) proud owner of a BSC in CS just in case anybody cares.

The roughly 5 years of commercial programming experience covered lots of things from implementing video streaming and the payment engine for a webcam porn site to work on the mobile banking system of a big Swiss bank.

A huge fan of artificial intelligence. No, not since they started the recent hype with deep learning and the google cars, long before that, I had the vision about it and still do. (I'm also interested in projects related this field)

Freelancer - SEEKING WORK - Mumbai, India - Remote

I have just completed my ongoing projects and I am back here for more. I have been doing freelance work from reddit and HN successfully for the past year or so.

I am a software engineer working in one of the country's largest e-commerce websites.

I love learning and working on new technologies and platforms, but currently, my main experience is in Node.js and PHP. I also have some experience in working with Ruby and Sinatra. I work on linux, and I have deployed and managed web, database and application servers on CentOS and Ubuntu. I am familiar with bash scripting. I am also familiar with some basic Python and Go, but I have never really got a chance to work on it.

One of my previous jobs involved working with a large WordPress application, so I am quite adept with WordPress too. Most of my freelance work from reddit has been on the wordpress front: Customizing and working on various plugins. I have worked with various data stores too: Mysql, mongodb, redis are the primary ones.

On the front end side, I have worked on big JavaScript projects working with various html5 APIs. I dig semantic clean HTML markup and know my way around CSS.

I have worked on AWS on an earlier job, though my current organization has its own servers in a data center. I like working on big problems, "architecting" solutions which scale out and working on them, and tackling and troubleshooting live issues. I usually try to work on git whenever possible.

I am looking for medium to long term projects, and I love working remotely. Let me know if you have anything interesting and we can chat. Email me at mail@munimkazia.com.


I can be a unicorn for your project! Design & development, building API's, mobile apps and all that kind of stuff.

SEEKING WORK - London, on-site (Central) / remote

Github: https://github.com/mickeynp/ Blog: http://www.masteringemacs.org/

Jack-of-all-trades full-stack Python developer with a wide gamut of experience doing both backend and frontend development work. Past work include: workflow & digital asset management system (Django/JS); enterprise-scale release management systems; large-scale ETL and web scraping; business integration work; report generation and other RDBMS CRUD apps (Oracle, MSSQL, etc.); writing modelling software for the train industry; and much, much more.

I am often called upon to do esoteric, non-Web development tasks; be it integrating disparate systems or helping a business out with failing projects by picking up the slack and learning tools and domain knowledge on the fly.

I am also more than willing to work with non-Python languages.

Used to working in high-pressure, client-facing environments.

I am available for on-site work in central London and remote work elsewhere.

Contact me (see e-mail in profile) and we can talk about you and your business's needs.

SEEKING WORK - Based outside of Philadelphia, PA. Remote work ok.

I specialize in crafting both web-based and native iOS applications and I run Consumed by Code. Over the years I've lead dozens of individuals, startups, and small businesses through the process of planing, building, and successfully launching their product ideas. I work directly with my clients as a partner; looking to understand their business and customers, seeing where technology can add value. This approach ensures the product is successful; be it a consumer-facing app that delights or a web-based system that optimizes their business.

Tools of the trade: Objective-C, PHP with CodeIgniter, ASP.NET MVC in C#, SQL (MySQL, PostgreSQL, MSSQL), HTML5, CSS3, Javascript with jQuery, and of course lots of Photoshop

Most recently I've launched my company's first product: Slopes - an iOS app for skiers and snowboarders. http://getslopes.com

I’d encourage you to visit my website, http://consumedbycode.com, to read client stories from past projects and learn more about how I can help you.

SEEKING WORK - Utah, Florida, or remote.

Relocating from SLC to Orlando in February 2014. Would love some Florida-local clients, but open to anyone willing to allow remote work. Some travel is negotiable.

Brief overview:

* Several years of experience as a professional freelancer and consultant, and several years of experience as a full-time employee developer before that.

* Have led company IT units in the past, as well as my own band of contractors. A good lead contractor.

* Regularly architect whole systems. Well-versed in SOA.

* A technical polyglot, going in and out of stacks and languages all the day long, using the right tool for the job, based on economic as well as technical considerations. I think this makes me a well-rounded developer that can make less skewed decisions.

* Well-experienced with Python, Ruby, JavaScript, C#, and others.

Specializing in Node & Ember.

It's a smart, real-time music video jukebox that provides continous, multi-platform streaming of top emerging latin music, focuses on video delivery, not discovery, and keeps you in-the-know of everything going on in modern latin music. I used to work for http://zipmark.com, where I shipped a commercial-scale ember.js app, atop a RESTful Rails API, tested to work and look good all the way down to ie6, and somehow lived to tell about it. In a past life, I was a Motion Graphic Designer and Video Editor and did a web marketing campaign for a rock'n'roll band.

I've worked on complex sites for digital agnecies (30+ templates, 25+ plugins), as well as on smaller sites for small businesses/individuals (10 templates, 10 plugins).

Technologies I use: PHP, HTML, CSS/LESS/SASS, jQuery, CodeIgniter, WordPress, mySQL, ZURB Foundation (3/4/5), Bootstrap, SVN or Git for version control, Fogbugz or Sifter for issue tracking, HipChat to stay in touch. Self-taught and resourceful.

SEEKING WORK - SF Bay Area - Remote or Local - Long or Short Term Projects

I'm an expert at creating APIs and building client applications (browser-based and mobile apps) powered by APIs.

API Development - I've designed, built, and scaled APIs for many different application profiles, from large complex data models, event subscription architecture, high transaction volume (25K requests/second), to simple REST APIs. I have a good amount of experience analyzing data models and use cases to determine API structure, architecture, and recommended implementation. I know the ins and outs of REST vs RPC, JSON vs XML, and hypermedia vs traditional. I've implemented APIs using Rails, Node.js, and Java platforms. Bottom line - if you need an API developed, I can take you through the process from start to finish.

Single-Page JS App Development - I've led development on multiple single-page JavaScript apps in both desktop and mobile environments. I have significant JavaScript experience and have built full applications from scratch using Backbone.js, Ember.js, and AngularJS.

Mobile App Development - I've deployed multiple apps across iOS and Android platforms for phones and tablets. I'm experienced in both native (iOS, Android) and mobile cross-platform HTML (Sencha Touch, JQuery Mobile) development.

Traditional Web Development - While I've spent most of my time lately working on APIs and API-driven apps, I also have ten years of experience doing traditional server-side web development. If you need a Rails or Java generalist to build a product, augment your team or maintain existing code, get in touch!

I can help with figuring out how to make more money out of your application (B2B SaaS apps are where I have the most experience).

By understanding who your customers are and what they're looking for, I can help create a better experience for them (examples: fixing application hot spots, adding live feedback chat at the right spot, customer satisfaction surveys, analyzing and reducing churn rate...)

Do you have poor signup rates? Low activation or retention metrics? Do you think you could make more money out of your current application?

I have 8 years of experience as a software developer (Python/Django/Javascript), and I've worked both on my own products and for other startups.

I can also help with your MVP, help you come up with the right questions, and developing the right product.

SEEKING WORK: San Francisco Bay Area or Remote

I have a research background in robotics as well as professional experience writing firmware in C. In the past I've helped consumer electronics startups develop prototypes and bring concepts to production: hardware/electronics design and manufacture, firmware development etc. I have all necessary professional tools including a license for Cadence Allegro, oscilloscope etc.

I've been doing web dev work for the past three years. I spent the past year working on a (yet-to-be-launched) startup. Some of the technologies I have used professionally are Meteor, Rails, Clojure (also ClojureScript, Pedestal) MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Datomic and D3.js.

Recently Clojure has been my go-to language for everything from robotics, to data visualization as well as in web dev, but I'm fluent in C, Ruby, Python, JavaScript and CoffeeScript. I'm interested in both part-time and full-time positions. My email is in my profile.



Croissant is a web application development consultancy. We are a small team that mainly works in creating new software and applications for individuals wanting to turn their idea into a reality, but do not yet wish to hire full-time developers to do so. Our forte lies in creating beautifully designed minimum viable products, landing pages and first iteration/version 1 applications.

We will work closely with you, and converse about your ideas and vision from day one. You will be actively involved throughout the whole creation process.

We currently have openings in our schedule for new clients. Get in touch with us and let's see if we're both a good fit for each other.

hello@croissant.io http://www.croissant.io

My apologies for the incomplete website. Our team started by doing this part-time and on the side. We are now all transitioning into growing Croissant full-time.

Hope to hear from you soon! :)

SEEKING WORK - Portland, Oregon or remote

Front end developer and designer looking to work with Angular.js and d3.js--but really, any decent paying 20-40 hour gig will do!

LINK TO RESUME WITH PORTFOLIO SCREENSHOTS: http://econexus.co/finalresume_12-15_portfolio.pdf


I would describe myself as an intermediate front end developer with a high aptitude and high drive. I started my forays into web development purely on the design end but I have since bloomed into a well rounded designer-developer. Over my trajectory, I graduated with a degree in the liberal arts from Washington University in St. Louis, designed websites for fun and environmental causes, worked on documentaries, and studied computer science at the University of Texas.

I have worked with a variety of platforms and libraries, including Drupal, Wordpress, Titanium, and Android. I have worked at all levels (full stack)—design, front end, and backend—though my natural talents are most suited to the front end. My most extensive experience is with Drupal: I have built modules, designed and developed responsive themes, used drush extensively, built a Drupal commerce site, and built a Drupal-backed Android app, etc. My Drupal-backed Android app communicated via JSON-based web services (i.e., REST). I have been working in a professional software development environment for a little over a year.

As far as design, I would consider myself intermediate or advanced at Photoshop and Illustrator.

I’m passionate about designing and developing fluid, responsive interfaces, the real time web, and data visualizations, which means a lot of javascript. I use JS extensively in Titanium, which is the cross platform mobile development framework, and I have also used it for JQuery. I’m currently learning Angular.js and loving it, and I’m working on a D3.js data visualization blog on alternative energy with a friend of mine. The blog is a great side project to further my design and development skills.

Just a heads up: your site is down http://www.johndavidrichter.com/

Thanks, yeah, should have mentioned that. My portfolio site is under redevelopment. That's why I linked my PDF portfolio on my blog, though my resume still has a link to my former portfolio site.

Business Analytics

Digital Marketing Strategy

Api integration and development

Persistent Data Management







About Me:

I started off in web development, doing mid-large size lead generation web sites. As a big part of dealing with lead generation, I became proficient in RESTful API integration and development, along with complex javascript web applications used for analytics. I then began working on iPhone and iPad applications over the years, working on apps for Cie Studios, BuySellAds, and their respective clients. My ability to understand complex api's, also helped me build connection management and caching systems for iOS apps that assured the user that their information would always be posted to the server, regardless of their data connection.


Just wanted to give Joe a recommendation. Not only did I have the pleasure of talking with him, but of viewing his code as well (disclaimer: I work at BuySellAds, one of the companies he did work for).

Joe developed an iOS SDK for one of our products and did a fantastic job.

About Me:

I have been building websites since 1996. I love the way a strong, lightweight CMS turns a website into a platform for integrating all sorts of fun ideas and technologies. I estimate that I have helped create 25 new jobs in the past 5 years by building custom CMS workflows that help my clients move their marketing and business tasks online. Most of my clients like keeping me in a webmaster role, as I am a strong generalist and can suggest and manage third-party resources where needed. I am an award-winning "full-stack artist", draw and design like an animal, and get high marks for aesthetic design work from my clients. I'm also a former college-level instructor, and my clients like the way I give friendly, helpful support.

If you need strong visual design with strong thinking behind it, from someone who is technically-minded and can contribute with code as needed, that's my sweet spot.

Among other things, I love working on tools for developers, internal or external. APIs, different programming languages, awesome developer experience are the things that make me excited!

One of my last projects is Uploadcare.com. I designed its API and feature set. I worked on high availability (autoscaling, failover, etc...), advanced JavaScript libraries, file format conversion (including realtime: https://uploadcare.com/documentation/cdn/ - this feature is completely designed and developed by me). I wrote or managed writing, and maintained open source libraries for many programming languages and platforms, including iOS.

I have experience with Big Data. I solved many problems related to the storage and processing of huge amounts of data. I used Hadoop a lot, with Pig and by itself, mostly on Amazon EMR.

For my clients, I created different tools and worked on things related to large-scale deploys, big data storage and analysis, advanced monitoring of complicated systems, etc. I know Fabric and Chef very well. I successfully used in the past most of the Amazon Web Services.

I have experience with parsers, interpreters, reactive programming, natural language processing, programming for devices like PSP and Microsoft Zune.

I'm very good with algorithms, and I won multiple programming competitions in the past. However, I prefer using the already existing libraries wherever possible.

I write very clean, nice code which other people really like to work with.

I'm a strong proponent of testing, continuous integration and code reviews.

I don't really like to have a work schedule, but I like to have regular meetings via Skype/Hangouts or in person.

I would gladly answer any questions and provide any information: let's talk!

I am looking for an expert-level iOS developer to work on an existing native application built for iOS 3 and 4 that needs to be updated to work well on iOS 6 and 7. The application works well in general already.

I'm also looking to create a new native mobile application for iOS and Android for PlainSite (http://www.plainsite.org). I want to take some of the site's basic features, like displaying court dockets, and put it on a mobile screen.

Remote is OK. E-mail jobs@thinkcomputer.com.


I need some devops works done. Need experience in AWS and moving to VPC. Puppet experience would also be nice but not required.



For various reasons, I'm taking some time off from school. I'm looking for some interesting work for anywhere from 3 to 6 months--maybe more.

I specialize in programming languages: DSLs, static analysis, verification, program synthesis[1] and so on.

Admittedly, this is a narrow field, but it's also surprisingly broadly applicable: there are many domains where a small domain-specific language can be much more expressive than a standard library; I then know how to build some powerful tools on top of the language including things like bounded verification and all sorts of static checking. DSLs can be used both to help expert programmers or to make a system more accessible to non-programmers. Especially for the latter, we can also design interesting interactive tools that help non-experts express themselves as they go along.

I also do a lot of functional programming: primarily Haskell along with OCaml and Racket. If you're interested in experimenting with functional programming at your startup, I'd really love to help. Apart from actually using functional programming, I really enjoy teaching people about it: for example, I'm in the top 10 for [haskell] on StackOverflow[2] and I've recently been teaching people about type theory at a meetup in SF[3]. I also have a particular interest in functional reactive programming (FRP); over the summer, I even designed an FRP library for OCaml (in the browser--with js_of_ocaml).

If any of this sounds interesting, I'd love to talk to you! My email is tikhon@jelv.is; you can see a recent resume at http://jelv.is/resume.pdf or on http://careers.stackoverflow.com/tikhonjelvis. My site, naturally, is http://jelv.is; I have to admit I'm unreasonably happy with the little domain hack :). Also check out my LinkedIn profile: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/tikhon-jelvis/24/237/750

I'd prefer to find something in the Bay Area, but I'm flexible along both remote work or living somewhere else.

[1]: Program synthesis is a type of automatic programming--generating programs programmatically, by searching through the space of all possible programs. It's an exciting field that has really heated up in the last few years thanks to advances in computational power and SMT solvers. I think it's about ripe for some practical applications. I've done some research on the subject and implemented a few different synthesizers, so I have a reasonably rare amount of experience with it.

Program synthesis also involves verifying the programs we generate. Our approach to "bounded verification" is actually interesting on its own: we can reasonably quickly check conditions against code exhaustively, using an SMT solver. This could be very useful if you need high levels of assurance about your code.

[2]: http://stackoverflow.com/tags/haskell/topusers

[3]: You can see past slides at http://jelv.is/talks. Feel free to pop by our next meeting about two weeks from now; we're going to have an introduction to basic category theory, with very little mathematical background needed. The actual meetup page: http://www.meetup.com/SF-Types-Theorems-and-Programming-Lang...

A fellow tinkerer in program synthesis? Just today, I was tweaking my AI-Programmer project http://primaryobjects.com/CMS/Article149.aspx, which uses genetic algorithms to generate programs.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks programmers can/should become obsolete. :)

Sorry to just copy/paste this from the who's hiring post but it may make more sense here anyways.


Seeking Freelancer (remote is ok)

Hey, HN. One of you is perfect for this idea.

I am a serial entrepreneur who is currently trapped in the body of a freelance contractor. I have a relatively stable 40 hour a week project, and incoming projects as well that I generally can't take due to lack of resources (time, the most precious one)

So here's the idea. You. Are interesting and have some experience in coding (webapps, mobile, whatever) would be a coding apprentice. I would give you a guaranteed 20 hour a week gig for now, and flex additional work as it comes in and you are available.

You would work on entrepreneurial ideas and contracts and get paid for doing so. If something took off the ground we could negotiate revenue/equity, but no matter what you will be getting paid.

Here is what you get. Money Freedom and Flexibility (need the day off to deal with a hangover because you are in college and its friday?) Real World Education Ability to become a killer coder and whatever else. i'm pretty flexible

Languages? Python/Ruby Obj-C Javascript You name it. If you can show competency in some language I currently do, then we can work together and you can get paid to learn and become an expert at any other languages as required.

About me, your 'boss'. Late 20s. Been in and out of various startups. Started ideas from scratch. Reasonably connected in the 'valley'. No stranger to a term sheet. I have done hiring for a YC company. Been on both the business and engineering side of places.

Currently living in NYC (manhattan) with enough room for you to come clock hours, but you can be remote as well, or both. I have been travelling a lot because it means that working 9-5 EST is a much more reasonable 12-8 or even sometimes 9pm - 5am.

I like tinkering with OSS and hardware too, obsessed with gadgets.

Long story short, you will get paid to learn how to code in the real world, become an entrepreneur or freelancer (or both) and then hopefully be able to repeat this process.

You'll get hands on attention and code reviews without some PM breathing down your neck. (unless you are working on a project that requires it).

We'll figure out a good hourly rate, and when you are working on a project that is paid, probably double it. And then fall back to the normal rate when we are working on whatever random ideas I want to incubate.

email hn0114@boun.cr with a little bit about yourself, a resume if you have it, and most importantly either a github or code sample.

This looks awesome, if I had more free time and I was more capable I would apply. Good luck!

Sent you an email. (posting here just incase boun.cr filters it)

What about a designer? or a designer/developer team?

Looks awesome, sent you an email.

SEEKING WORK - Based in London, UK. Happy to work either on-site or remotely.

I'm a full-stack developer with a sweet spot for back-end work and distributed systems. Available for contract work from the 8 Jan. Happy to meet for a face-to-face chat if you're in London. Email in profile.

My strongest technical expertise currently lies with the .NET / Windows stack (C# 5, .NET 4.5, ASP.NET MVC 4, Razor, TPL, async / await, SQL Server 2012, PowerShell, RabbitMQ) and the iOS / Cocoa stack (Objective-C, UIKit, Core Data, Core Animation, AFNetworking).

I have also worked with a range of other languages and technology stacks, including Python, Java and C++ on Windows, OS X and Linux, have strong fundamental knowledge of software engineering principles and am able to get up-to-speed very quickly on other stacks.

A bit more about me:

In the 10 years since I graduated with an MSc in software engineering from one of France’s leading engineering college, I’ve been held positions in several industries, including as a researcher in an academic research center, a senior software developer in one of the world’s largest investment bank and a technical co-founder in a tech startup that attracted investment from several of Europe’s top-tier angel investors.

I’ve worked both independently and as part of a team, including distributed teams. I’ve also hired and managed contractors.

I’ve designed and implemented several large-scale distributed software systems. In all the positions I’ve held, I’ve been involved in the full life-cycle of the project, from requirement gathering, initial design and implementation through to deployment and production support.

In my most recent role as technical co-founder of a funded tech startup, I’ve been in charge of the entire technology stack of the business, including system architecture, software development, sysadmin / DevOps, production issue troubleshooting and customer support. I’ve also been involved in all other aspects of the business, including business planing, product management and fund raising.

This experience has provided me with a breadth of knowledge and expertise, both on the technical and on the business side, rarely seen in a software engineer. It also allowed me to realise that I much prefer working on crafting great software than on writing business plans or networking with potential investors. Not that I believed otherwise before I started.

I’m now looking to take on a role where I can focus on the technical side. While my area of predilection lies in back-end work, as a full-stack software engineer I can jump in at any level of the software stack and take ownership of an entire project or feature, from back-end to front-end.

Just a heads up, your e-mail address is not in your profile

Thanks Glen! I was sure I had checked before that the email field was visible to all. Looks like it's not the case though.

Now added my email to my bio in my profile.

- An iPad app for a medical company for quick lookup of drug interactions. This was built with HTML5 and made use of Angular.JS. I can show you more of this one on request.

- A web app for a training company to provide complete courses online combing video, slides and quiz's.

- Lead developer on a team building a collaboration application featuring a RESTful API and browser and mobile clients. See http://thisisdrum.com and see also a talk I gave on some of the tech[1]

- Head pose estimation from a video feed for a interactive store-window display (it superimposed masks over the faces of customers as they looked through the window)

I can show you more of these on request
