Avner Braverman

PROGRAMMER AND ENTREPRENEUR

I started coding at age 10 and never stopped. I've worked on both edges of the spectrum, on low level operating system projects and on interactive applications for web, mobile and desktop. I am fluent in modern web frameworks (Ruby on Rails, Django and jQuery) and low level web coding (Javascript, push ajax and more). I have designed and coded my own web servers, worked in the UNIX and Linux kernels and wrote device drivers. I designed user interfaces and managed developers and graphic designers. I was a founder and co-founder in several startups. I am a renaissance man and a versatile developer who learn new fields very quickly.

What am I doing now?

Consulting for LiveU, developing mobile video solutions.
Available for contracting work as a software developer.
