Who is Boye?

I am a Dutch front-end developer with a passion for web standards and over fifteen years of in-depth web development experience. I graduated in 2008 from the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences (Media Technology, BICT) and I am always aiming for semantic, cross-browser & cross-platform consistent and maintainable code.

Also, I have a demonstrated aptitude with web fundamentals (such as HTTP), version control (SVN, Git), the LAMP environment, Object-Oriented Programming, unit testing and third-party API's.

I am well organized, have an eye for details and have the ability to take direction as well as provide guidance to production and peers.

Specialties: Web standards (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), Node.js, web3, front-end performance, mobile, usability, accessibility (WCAG, WAI-ARIA).
