Felix Hagspiel

Hey there,
my name is Felix and I am a freelance webdeveloper living in Berlin.

Contact Me!

I create customized webapplications and responsive websites.

Who am I?

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.

What do I do?

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.

How do I work?

Best practices and design patterns

Content first, mobile first, progressive enhancement

What are my skills?

  • JavaScript, mostly ReactJS and NextJS
  • HTML(5)
  • CSS (3) including LESS, SASS and CSS-Modules
  • Node.js
  • Java
  • PostgreSQL, MySQL
  • PHP
  • Devops - Linux / Ubuntu, Apache, Microsoft Azure

Which frameworks and CMS do I use?

To reduce a site's overhead I avoid frameworks and libraries like jQuery or Bootstrap if possible. JavaScript frameworks I work with are ReactJS and NextJS.
If it comes to CMS and Backend I use Strapi CMS andNodeJS, but I have experience in other CMS like Kirby and Wordpress as well.

Which tools and services do I use?

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 and for larger projects mostly Microsoft Azure. 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 secure payments.
