My commercial experience has been primarily in embedded software development for home automation systems - C programming, microcontollers (PIC, Atmel AVR and STM32s), real-time operating systems, API design and communication protocols. I have meaningful experience with server-side development and relational databases also however - in Perl, Python and PostgreSQL primarily. I have a first-class Bachelors degree of Electrical & Electronic Engineering. Note: Don't take my hourly rate seriously. It may be (significantly) more or less depending on the job.
