About Me

Hi. I'm Maxwell Pearl, or just Max.

I've been coding and working on/with internet services full-time for 20 years. I have worked on projects in a wide variety of fields, but primarily in the sciences, education, and nonprofit spaces.

Out of necessity, as I've generally worked with smaller organizations and projects, I've learned a lot of project management, information architecture, software architecture, and devOps along the way, all of which I enjoy greatly.

My current foci are: back-end data management systems and web development. My emerging areas are API development and machine learning.

I spent many years developing websites using Drupal, which is based on PHP. I also admin several WordPress websites for personal and friends projects. Although my current language preference is Python, I still do web development in Drupal. I've been working a little with Django for web and application development, more with Flask for API development, loving Pelican for static site development (this site uses Pelican.) You can hire me for projects.

In the remote past, I've used Perl, Pascal, C, FORTRAN and BASIC.

Have a look at my resume, and my LinkedIn Profile.
