I'm a freelance fullstack software engineer and teacher - driven by idealism with pretty high values.
I'd like to contribute to sustainable organisations and other good ideas.
I try to avoid getting a small cog in the capitalist machinery.
My heart beats for ruby on rails, javascript and all the lovely technologies out there.
See what I do...

I gained experience in different sections. Have a look!

Node

Hapi or Express MongoDB or CouchDB - node stuff is growing.

Rails

The framework of choice where there should be more than a static site. Super reliable.

CSS

Lovely handcrafted stylesheets or customized frameworks like bootstrap or materialize.

Javascript

Vanilla JS including ES6 combined with React or such this get's pretty powerful.

Html

Validation, semantic elements and meta tags are essential.

Wordpress

CMS for editorial content. Still have a few sites under maintenance.

ui

Adobe PS/AI/Indesign and lots experience in user behaviour and interface design.

git

Version control and working in a branch-based team workflow.

cli

Commandline Interface including unix, nginx(passenger), php, capistrano, cucumber-tests etc.

Sanktionsfrei (sanctionfree) is a Berlin-based NGO supporting a dignified living wage for all. The German welfare system Hartz 4 doesn’t fulfill that claim, as it can sanction people who don´t comply with its strict rules. NodeJS, CouchDB, Handlebars www.plattform.sanktionsfrei.de/

The design of the „Themenkoordinationsgruppe Polizei und Menschenrechte“ of Amnesty International is based on their global side, but the architecture and the micro-design is unique. The site itself is very busy, it publishes several times a week new content and records every day hundreds of hits. Its wordpress-based, bilingual and a specially created mailchimp-newsletter-API connection is the cherry on the cake on this project. www.amnesty-polizei.de
