Front end web development

I really love what the web in terms of front end possibilities has become. I find the possibilities of html5 and css3 truly mind boggling. I like the idea of websites adapting to whatever screen and device the user has, especially because this comes with it's own set of challenges.

I come from a time where websites also needed to work in IE 6 so I'm no stranger to crossbrowser and cross OS testing.

Tools of the trade
  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • Sass/Less
  • Javascript
  • jQuery
  • Bootstrap
  • Angular
  • jQueryUI

Back end web development

Like many I started out with some simple "if else" php for small automation, learning by copy, trial and error. In 2009 I started using wordpress, but after some time it became a crutch and I decided to really dig in to (object oriented) php and Mysql.

Since then I've worked with my own versions of frameworks, as well as others like symfony. I've learned how to optimize sql queries and work with larger than typical sets of data. I've also taken a course in Python and Ruby.

Web and print design

I have a pretty vast experience in designing websites for various clients and target audiences. My experience in webdesign is not limited to the graphical part. I've done alot of work on functional and user interface design as well.

I've had the occasional opportunity to work on print, from anything like a business card to a multipage instructional booklet.

Tools of the trade
  • Illustrator

  • Pen+paper

Digital Imaging and video

These are skills that I don't get to use as much as I'd like to, but I have some experience in these fields of the trade. I have had a dslr for years, and dare I say it, I'm pretty good with it. To me its still more a hobby, yet I have done a couple of paid assignments.

I've done the some work in video production as well, where I have been involved with almost every aspect, from camera work to editing to the implementation of motion graphics.
