BLATANTLY LOOKING FOR WORK...
Okay, since I've had the heart-to-heart with the boss, I should ask y'all for the same understanding: I'm looking for work again. I love working where I am now, the absolute freedom, the responsibility for the entire working stack from the OS up to the CSS/JS/HTML deployment layer, but right now this is an underfunded start-up that isn't paying anyone anything near market rates. They know that, I know that, there's nothing anyone can do about it right now.
So, to remind everyone, here are the basics: I'm an end-to-end developer with a strong preference for Python and its collection of web development environments. I've written everything from network servers in C++ to animation tricks in jQuery, I'm good at Test Driven Development, Agile and XP, and all the other meta-development things that developers are asked to do. I can configure MySQL, and have active interest and recent experience in gamification, social network integration, A/B testing, automated performance expansion via AWS/EC2, and vertical and horizontal sharding for data management issues. My graphic design skills have withered without recent practice, but could be refreshed if that's what I need to do.
