My name is Michael Boutros, and I'm a PHP coder turned Ruby on Rails programmer. While proficient in both languages, I prefer Ruby on Rails, and as such I'm much more active in the Rails community. I've authored several plugins, although not all are available to the public. I'm still in school, and currently striving towards a career where business and technology meet.
If you're interested in working with me, feel free to drop me a line. From multi-phase projects to consultation and refactoring, no project is too big or too small. I have no problem working as part of a team, or by myself - whatever suits your needs. I will always offer fair pricing, and I charge by the project, not by the hour. I'm confident that I'll give you the best price for the best work.
From the Critics
"Michael is by far the most professional person I've ever hired and worked with on the internet. He is extremely patient, responsive, insightful, client-friendly, and charges far less than the typical web developer; in other words, he is a breath of fresh air in the web development industry. I will definitely be hiring Michael to develop future scripts and web applications." Chris Beck.
"I hired Michael to do some PHP work and his skills amazed me. He had the issue sorted out in 15 minutes and had my site back online. I have been doing this for several years and have hired and fired every single person. Michael has broken that trend and I intend on using him for all my current and future projects. Fair pricing, fast work, good follow up. You can't ask for anything more." Matt Naqvi of V12 Networks.
More About Me
Currently I live in Ontario, Canada with my family. I love to read and write in my free time, and logistical games like Sudoku intrigue me. I don't like watching TV, although I am quite the movie fanatic. I like to take things apart to see how they tick, and to me the smallest details in anything are the most important ones. If you'd like to know anything else about me, from my favourite food (Subway.) to my favourite movie (that's a tough one.) please don't hesitate to shoot me an email.
