  • Coding
    Skills

    HTML, CSS, SASS, Javascript (ES6), Angular, jQuery, Design Patterns

    I do component based development and follow the pragmatic approach to front-end. I am a technology agnostic which basically means that I choose tools considering needs, budget and time. Clean code and design patterns matter.

  • Coding
    Tools

    Gulp, Npm, Git, ESLint, TSLint, Iterm

    Tools help us to enhance work efficiency, optimization and make it easy to follow best practices. Currently I am interested in Webpack.

  • Other
    Tools

    Photoshop, Figma, Trello, Miro-realtimeboard, Google Drive/Docs, Slack

    Being a part of a team is more than being just a developer. To be in-sync with other team members is crucial. I use best tools in that purpose. I am able to solve minor design needs by myself and capable to use Figma as a prototyping tool. I use miro-realtimeboard to communicate visually in my projects.

About Me

My first international work experience was in Devtailor in Tallinn, Estonia. I have experienced how to design a web application with the approach of MVP (Minimum Viable Product), worked with some low-fi prototypes for designing apps rapidly by considering UX. I had a chance to design a new website and I started to use tools like Git and Node Package Manager in my projects, improved my CSS development speed and process. This was a good ‘welcome’ to the industry in 2017.

2018 was the year that I started to get involved writing more JavaScript and I covered very important concepts with the language and learnt a couple of design patterns. It helped me a lot to organize and maintain my code. I have delivered many tiny and a couple of mid-sized web projects. I have attended as an instructor to the Front-End Camp 2018, organised by Taze. Check out my presentation.

Currently I have focused on ES2015, Angular and Webpack.
