It's great to meet you!

I’ve been diving deep into web technologies for the past half a decade since I made my first site. Since then, I have created optimized, efficient, and unique websites for all kinds of folks using all kinds of tools.

But what do you even do, Julian?

Design + Prototyping icon

Design + Prototyping

Design + Prototyping Before writing a single line of code, it’s imperative to have plans set in place to know what to do. For websites, these plans consist of sitemaps, wiremaps, mockups, and prototypes.

Copywriting is a part of the process too, since websites need to inform visitors.

For design, I often sketch layouts on a page, mock them up in Figma, and send them to the client for feedback.

Once all the design work has been completed, coding can be an easy task. It’s also important to code websites in a way that is efficient, mobile-friendly, and fast.

For coding, I first markup the layout and content for each page using HTML. Pages are styled using CSS, and interactivity is made possible using JavaScript.

I use HTML, CSS, JS, React, NodeJS, PHP, Wordpress, etc.

Mentoring + Teaching

"Docendo discimus" — The best way to learn is to teach. I find great pleasure in helping others find answers to their questions, especially with code. It’s what most motivates me to learn.

I currently teach students at Nucamp Web Development Bootcamp, where I enjoy over a 4.9/5 rating and do my best to inspire my pupils, and learn things from them.
