Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

After I wrote the first lines of code with 15 years and thereby discovered the opportunity to shape a digital world and its future, I pulled the WWW fully under its spell. With the happiness and motivation to turn my hobby into a profession, I could getting to know the many interesting facets of this industry from project management, design to programming at various media companies and web agencies in the last 7 years. I worked for both large and small, as well as national and international clients.

Through my skills as a Web Developer I am doing mathematical handstands to find solutions to complex problems. But the more complex the processes in the background, the easier it needs to be for the user. To quote Leonardo Da Vinci "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." I put great importance to usability and design. I also work organized, am agile, communicate transparently and respect deadlines.

Myself

I am fascinated by the fast pace of the Internet and its technologies. So I love to deal with new programming languages ​​and tools.

  • HTML5 & CSS3
    HTML is a text-based markup language for structuring digital content. With CSS it's possible to specify different views for different output media.
  • JavaScript
    Javascript is a script language which is used to evaluate the user interactions, to modify, reloading or generate content and so extends the capabilities of HTML and CSS.
  • PHP
    PHP is a programming language that is used primarily for creating dynamic websites and web applications.
  • Ruby on Rails
    Ruby on Rails is written in the Ruby programming language and an open source Web Application Framework.
  • Swift
    Swift is an object oriented programming language developed by Apple for iOS and Mac OS X.
  • Git
    Git is a free software for distributed version control of files that was originally developed for the source control of the Linux kernel.
  • Laravel & CodeIgniter
    Laravel & CodeIgniter are open source PHP Web Application Frameworks which follow the MVC pattern. Especially Laravel is regarded as the most promising framework of 2014.
  • Wordpress & Drupal
    WordPress and Drupal are content management systems (CMS) to manage the content of a website (texts and pictures).
  • Responsive Webdesign
    Responsive web design (RWD) is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices.
  • UI/UX Design
    User experience design is the process of enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty by improving the usability, ease of use, and pleasure provided in the interaction between the customer and the product.
  • SEO
    Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine's "natural" or un-paid ("organic") search results.

The rapid development of the Internet in the recent years has simplified our lives fundamentally. Content and knowledge are almost always and everywhere accessible. But the versatility of how such content is consumed by desktop, tablet, mobile, and soon watches, clothes and household appliances introduces ourselves also to new technical challenges. And this is where I come into play. I love programming, design and the possibility to create things with creative people. I am interested to implement ideas, concepts and designs of Web Agencies, Startups, Designers and Clients.

A story of a dream mixed with reality.
