Hello!

My name is Andrew and I'm a Front-end developer located in Warsaw, Poland.

I focus on creating standards oriented, functional and lightweight websites that focus on the best browsing experience for the user. This involves semantic HTML markup, made pretty for the eyes using CSS and enhanced with Javascript.

Here you can read about my skills, view some of the selected projects and get familiar with my work experience. If you have any questions - go ahead: andrew@bitrebel.com

Skills

In my 10+ years of experience I've been creating websites and web applications using HTML(5), CSS (including CSS3) and javascript. I had the opportunity to work with multiple javascript frameworks and libraries over the past few years – Vanilla JS, jQuery, MooTools, ExtJS, BackboneJS and lately AngularJS. Also CSS preprocessors are not new to me, so wether it's LESS or SASS I'm up for it. CSS Transitions? CSS Animations? Check. Same applies to cross-browser compatibility.

At this point I can't imagine working without a version control system. While I do prefer GIT, I'm also familiar with SVN.

Below is a quick summary for those who prefer bullet points.

Selected projects

Snapstars

  • html
  • css
  • jquery
  • rwd
  • wordpress
Snapstars

Since it was a project that had to be done in short time, the decision was made to use jQuery. To make it more attractive, multiple CSS animations and transitions were used.

The whole page had to be also responsive, because the target audience is mostly using mobile devices.

On the frontpage, which is fully responsive, we decided to use jQuery for fast and reliable development.

The backend panel that is used by clients is a different story and makes strong use of AngularJS framework and other tools like PhantomJS.

Hash.fm

  • html
  • css
  • jquery
  • rwd
Hash.fm

For this project we've decided to use jQuery as a fast and reliable way to create an MVP version of both – the frontpage and also the administration panel for the clients.

Responsive approach was also required to ensure that full funcionality was provided on all types of devices.
