Right after my Diploma in Information Economics at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne I moved from Germany to London in 2006 and have been working as a Web Developer ever since. At the moment I am also working in Berlin so depending on future projects my plan is to switch between London and Berlin.
Webstuff I can do
Apart from coding I enjoy thinking about the architecture of a website and make sure it's consistent and easy to use.
Webstuff I am fairly comfy with
During the last three years I got more and more interested in backend programming with PHP and MySQL. I am a big fan of coding things according to the MVC principle and have used Zend Framework and Symfony 1.4. If a CMS is needed my top choice used to be Typo3 but is now Concrete5.
Webstuff I am learning at the moment
Of course there is HTML5 and CSS3 to learn as we only got until 2018 or so until they will become proper standards ;-). I am including some of their fancy features in my current projects which is good fun.
As mentioned above I like MVC frameworks and have been using Zend and Symfony so far. My latest discovery is Concrete5, a lightweight MVC-based CMS that is very impressive and easy to use. This website here for example was build in Concrete5 within two days.
