Like what you see?
If you need any kind of web development done, let me know.
I’m currently interested in:
- Static websites
- Serverless logic (Amazon Lambda, etc)
- Headless CMSes such as Netlify CMS, Prismic, Contentful, etc
- Laying out beautiful but practical designs
Other things I’m good at:
- Website back-end coding (Node.js with Express or Serverless; Python with Django; PHP with Laravel; MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and Sqlite; Linux/Unix shell)
- Responsive site layout in HTML5 and CSS3
- React and other front-end frameworks
- Building APIs, and hooking up to existing ones
- Building clear, powerful, and easy-to-use control panels
- Setting up and optimizing build systems (for example with Webpack)
- Devops and other automation
- Automated unit and acceptance tests
- Vector-based art (SVGs)
- Music notation
On the other hand, I rarely accept work involving big content management systems such as Wordpress or Drupal, or maintenance of existing sites I didn’t build.
I proudly develop with almost exclusively open-source software.
A few particular highlights:
- Ubuntu operating system
- Vim editor
- Git version control
- Inkscape vector drawing package
- Imagemagick image manipulation tools
- Firefox and other browsers
Not to mention the dozens of web development tools and libraries I use, but many of these constantly change from project to project.
