I created my first website well over 15 years ago, but at that time I did not even think about being a full time web developer. It took me 5 more years to realize that this is what I want to do. I went to university and completed my Bachelor-Degree in computer science with a major focus on digital media at the Hochschule der Medien in Stuttgart, Germany. Next to my studies I have been employed as working student at the frontend-department for the online agency Namics in Munich. Since then I am self employed and work for agencies as well as companies and NGOs in Europe.
My main focus lies on creating customized web applications rather than static websites. Depending on the complexity and size of the project, I can implement the frontend as well as the backend. I am not a full blood designer, but if you like the minimalistic approach I can do that as well. I also have understanding about UX and good UI. Apart from that I create responsive websites and prototypes or help out by working on existing projects.
Content first, mobile first, progressive enhancement
If it comes to PHP frameworks I use Laravel, but I also have worked with Codeigniter. For CMS I mainly use the JSON API of Wordpress, but I have a little experience in Drupal and some headless CMS as well.
I for subversion I use git and I store my own projects on Gitlab. For prototyping and small projects I use the awesome hoster uberspace, for dependency management and developing yarn and webpack. For communication and reviews I use Jira, Trello, Skype, Slack, Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts, Google Docs and of course phone and email. For time tracking I use the great webservice Toggl and the escrow service PAYLAX to request payments.
Please find below some of the companies I have worked for.
