Skills

  • JavaScript

    I have been working with the JS for years. I know the language, tools and libraries well.

    • React - I'm enoying the 'read-only' virtual DOM approach and readable project architecture. I can use the React right way and integrate that with many tools and libraries. I teach that and write articles about the library.
    • Redux - it's a great implementation of an ultimate design pattern that helps me to create predictable state apps. So that I can manage the app state like never before.
    • Webpack - I like the idea of budnedling and the dev-server. It makes me fast.
    • Grunt.js - I can prepare and maintain rich buildscripts with many tasks. It's helpful for development, deployment and testing automation.
    • Backbone.js - The library allows me to structure code well. It is so light-wight. I have a deep experience with the Backbone.js.

    • Phantom.js - I can integrate the tool in rendering and testing scenarios (TDD, End-to-end).
    • Jasmine, Ava, Jest - the test tools that I use whihin my JavaScript projects. I combine the libraries with Grunt and Webpack.
