Hello! I'm Johan, a professional front end developer.
I do freelance based work within web development, consulting and marketing.
I'll keep this as short and brief as i can:
My name is Johan Bouveng, I'm 34, Swedish and I have been working the internets on and off since 1999.
I live in Sweden at the moment, but are willing to relocate anywhere in the world!
100% valid, semantic and performance optimized (X)HTML(5) in all !doctypes available.
Highly efficient CSS2(3)
Graceful degradation in both JS and CSS.
All kinds of JS mastery. Native JS, jQuery, Prototype, etc. Development of own libs. DOM manipulations, AJAX, animations. Widgets. XSS. JSON. YQL (mashups and data syndication). Feature detection. Datauri's. API's. Event delegation. All JS that is needed in a modern web environment. 100% unobtrusive and clean. Font replacement techniques.
PHP, in a context where it makes sense. I'm no back end guy.
NoSQL - mongoDB and similar
Wordpress, themes, plugins, CMS-themes, customizations, etc.
Mobile sites, with fully responsive css.
Good knowledge of optimizations techniques in html,css,js and web in general. Sprites, requests, lazy loading. If I can serve a page in 0.3ms in one HTTP request I'm a happy man. Besides, I believe that web performance is a very competitive selling point since a larger amount of clients are smartphones.
I know a lot about user interaction design, which helps me to spot design errors at an early stage.
I can design things, I have good eyes for design and I have my feet in both worlds, acting as a bridge between design and technology.
I have very good skills in Photoshop and similar design tools focused for screen based media.
Media production such as still photography and movie production.
Social Media, SEO, and that fluffy voodoo stuff that is almost impossible to measure.
OOP-en minded development techniques.
Open source over licensed software.
*nix management, administration, security.
Bug tracking, issue tracking, SVN, GIT. XP (Extreme Programming). Agile & pragmatic blahblah, short development iterations. etc.
I have a great network of industry professionals that I have met and learned a lot from and continuously draw upon: John Resig, Douglas Crockford, Nicole Sullivan, Christian Heilmann, Mark Wubben, Thomas Fuchs and Steve Souders to name a few.
I consider myself being a swiss army knife of pragmatic, agile, fresh and modern web development with a strong focus on web standards and best practices. I'm also a good teacher and evangelist type of person who loves to spread my knowledge, techniques and skills alongs my colleagues. Besides this I tend to build a fun and healthy atmosphere around me.
