Hi, I'm Alex!

About me

I'm a self-taught self-driven engineer with years of experience in agency and product development.

I've been building side-projects and apps for almost ten years, and I always try to learn tools and frameworks that will help me provide the best value, code, and product-wise.

My curiosity forced me to try multiple libraries and frameworks over the years, such as jQuery, KnockoutJS, Ember, AngularJS, ReactJS, and Svelte. Since 2014 I have primarily used React to enable excellent development velocity combined with tooling for most day-to-day scenarios and know-how for an A-class user experience.

I'm also an advocate for treating performance as a first-class citizen, and I always try to measure and profile my apps often enough to fix any hiccups.

In my spare time, I'm mostly coding on side projects. I've started more side projects than I can count, and my next goal would be to finish some of them.

Side projects also act as a playground for new technologies. I've been experimenting with Elm and Ocaml/ReasonML for the last two years, but I haven't been able to use them in production apps so far.

Some buzzwords that I feel confident about (and provide SEO value on my website 😅) but didn't mention before are: Javascript, ES6, Typescript, React Native, Webpack, NextJS, Electron, SASS, Websockets, WordPress.
