Darren Duncan

Full Stack Database and Web Application Expert

I am a full stack software developer with over 17 years experience, specializing in database and web application programming, e-commerce, technical writing, and programming language design.

I am an expert of 16+ years in both SQL (several versions) and Perl, and am also strong, proficient, experienced or knowledgeable in these other languages: PHP / 6+ years, Javascript / 6+ years, HTML, CSS, Java, C, C++, regular expressions, command line, shell scripts, XML, XSLT, FoxPro, VBScript, ASP, Visual Basic, Pascal, .Net/C#, Python, Ruby and some functional languages.

I have worked with several great companies, including ChargeSmart and Anthony Macauley Associates, where I was the lead or primary developer on several important projects, developing new features, maintained legacy code, documented and tested, and trained others.

My passion is creating great database tools for accurately organizing and easily sharing the world's knowledge over the long term. This is my biggest cause and the best way I can help the world, made better through their use. My first such tool is the programming language Muldis D (see http://muldis.com/), currently in development. After that will be consumer-useable database applications. I also contribute to various open source projects, such as the Perl 6 language, and have released many Perl modules on CPAN, such as Set::Relation.

Other tasks done and tools used include: LAMP, relational databases, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL Server, SQLite, stored procedures, Apache, Nginx, IIS, jQuery, Backbone, Git, Subversion, Linux, UNIX, electronic payments, risk management, REST APIs, concurrency, distributed systems, functional languages, agile methodologies, systems analysis, data modelling, ETL, MVC, multi-tier, security, QA, optimization, OLTP, debugging, SOA, portability, Moose, DBI, Dancer, Catalyst, LWP, Template::Toolkit, automation tools, Puppet, Spacewalk, Trac, RT.

If you have a programming project or ongoing work you need done, I look forward to hearing from you.
