About

Hi, my name is Marco and I'm a Web Developer. I like to build responsive, accessible and fast websites and web experiences for every device and every browser.

I like to find solutions to complex problems, which will help every human being and achieve that while working with the latest web technologies.

My Skills

My current stack contains:

  • HTML & CSS
  • JavaScript
  • TypeScript
  • React
  • Redux
  • Testing with Jest and the React Testing Library
  • NodeJS/Express
  • MongoDB

I am proficient and experienced in writing semantic HTML and maintainable CSS with methodologies like BEM.

I am used to work with the principles of Responsive Webdesign since I wrote my bachelor thesis about this topic in 2014 and I can't imagine building a website without them in mind.

JavaScript is the language I am most interested in and where I try to improve the most everyday.

In 2018 I started to work with React and I really like the way how React makes it so enjoyable, easy and fun to build Single Page Applications.

I also got used to work with the principles of Redux and the main concepts of using a global state container.

Currently I'm interested in getting more of a full grasp of how web applications work from front to back. This means I'm learning more about NodeJS, Express and Databases like MongoDB to gain a better understanding of the full stack.


Everything else

In my spare time I like to do sports like bodyweightfitness and yoga.

I read a lot, mostly one fictional and one non fictional book at the same time. I also work on a small side project which is all about reading and books. You can check it out here: myreadingtime.digital

Playing videogames is something I like to do aswell, most of the time it's on my Nintendo Switch.

I also love to write. From blog posts, to short stories, sometimes even poems, or just simple notes. I'm not really good at it but I enjoy it a lot.
