Skills

  • Web dev

    I know my way around HTML, CSS and JavaScript (ES6). Svelte is my favorite JS framework, but I find Blazor (C#) also interesting. Besides that, I know some vanilla PHP and NodeJS, but nothing too complex.

    WordPress is my favorite tool for making good websites that are easy to manage. I can set up the website, customize it to client's liking, manage plugins, do some basic SEO optimization.

  • Design and creative

    Print, logo and UI/UX design are things I love doing. I use the Adobe suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Xd) and Figma.

    I can also do some basic video and audio editing in Adobe Audition and Adobe After Effects.

  • Mobile and hybrid app dev

    Flutter is my favorite cross-platform framework, I've done a couple of projects with it and I'm getting better every day. I also explored Electron for a bit and can make a basic app using it.

    I know basics of native Android (Kotlin) and native iOS (Swift) development that I learned at the faculty.

  • Dev — other

    I've worked mostly with Microsoft technologies and I can develop UWP, WPF and WinForms apps using C# and XAML. I know some C++ and Python.

    I'm comfortable with version control using Git and I've done some basic CI/CD setups.

    I worked in a couple of teams using Agile and SCRUM methodologies.
