Service Description

Being a full-stack web developer, I'm available for all types of web projects - complex web applications, or simple static websites.
Although I tend to specialize on corporate CMS platforms.

From back-end perspective:
- I can implement solid authorization/security standards
- control/improve performance of the servers
- address DB configurations and sizing (Oracle, MySQL and lately MongoDB)

Technologies I have used on the backend: JAVA, J2EE, NodeJS (Express and Passport), Oracle, MySQL, MongoDB.

From front-end perspective

- know when/how to use adequate MVC Javascript frameworks for single page websites
- develop cross-browser and cross-device solutions
- address performance and memory-leak issues
- guarantee responsive UI/UX solutions

As a side note, I also have experience implementing the company design standards (I also have Photoshop and Illustrator experience btw).

And on the "cosmetics" I have used...
