About Me

I work mainly with javascript since 2010 and I've ended up to be a team leader few times.

Since 2016 I'm working as a Node.js backender / team leader realizing the Conversation API at Vonage.

So now It's all about Rest API, using db's like Couchbase and pretending to understand WebRTC.

In my previous job I mainly work as a frontend developer, but I've worked also as backender (using javascript platforms).

Back then I was very interested in isomorphic javascript and I'm really exited about Reactjs framework and the Flux approach.

I also love to create web ui, fallowing progressive enhancement strategy and using the Javascript unobstrusive approach. Cross browser Approach was a must in my past work (I did websites who can be viewed from the Blackbarry 8310 as from the Iphone).

As I told for several years javascript was my main language, but in my "past live" I did some experience with Java and Python.
