Tech Experience

I started to code 12 years ago but last two years my coding has been even more goal oriented than ever. My strenght is definitely wide basic knowledge in different tech areas, but my focus is on web development and especially on full stack development. WordPress is wonderful environment which makes coding easy with the build-in functions; even if you are developing web servise alone, with help of WordPress it can be easier because it takes care of the back-end as long as you know, which build-in functions works together with different use cases. JavaScript library React is fast and takes coding experience totally new level. My purpose is to combine these two techniques by using WordPress as a back-end and build the font-end with React.
