I am a software developer specializing in collecting data from different sources for easy analysis. I primarily focus on the collection aspect rather than the analysis of the data as my customers usually know it better than I do. From real estate to pork futures, data covers a wide range of specialization.
If you have data trapped in "friendly" text reports, web pages, or obscure binary file formats that defy automatic parsing, I can automate the collection of this data on a regular basis into a database or format of your chosing. I am also familiar with protocol reverse-engineering and connecting incompatible systems by building "compatibility glue."
My availability for hire is presently limited to small to medium projects that do not require a full-time commitment.
If you have a cool project that could take data from different places and turn it into something more valuable, I'd love to help. I can also ensure business continuity if you're migrating to a new system but need your data to come with you.
