Hi, I’m a front-end developer from Athens 🇬🇷 and I love "everything Javascript" - browser and server. I'm working full-time at Trasys International and I'm sharing my JavaScript and React knowledge at Social Hackers Academy and Code.Hub! Say hello or keep scrolling!

Bio

Learn more about me


I'm a front-end developer that hand-crafts usable, elegant and effective web sites. I'm currently working for Trasys International (part of the NRB Group) an ICT company focusing on international public and corporate organisations. I have over 9 years of experience in front-end technologies and love working with Javascript (ES2015 and above).

The last 2.5 years, I've been enjoying building components with React using various state management tools - redux and MobX - and of course react's extensive ecosystem ( react-router, redux-thunk, redux-saga, recompose, immer, reselect etc.). I'm also trying to improving my knowledge in functional and reactive programming by using / learning relevant JS libraries and languages such as ramda.js, RxJS, and ReasonML. Finally, I have hands-on experience in many other Javascript frameworks and libraries such as backbone.js, underscore and lodash, jQuery, axios, moment.js and many more.

On the backend stack, I love working with node.js and express framework, but I also have decent knowledge in Ruby and Rails. I'm a huge fan of Linux OS (currently using Ubuntu), git, agile methodologies and always trying to do as much of TDD (Test-Driven Development) as possible.
