    I am a passionate developer that currently focus HTML5, CSS3, LESS, jQuery and PHP projects as they are the tech I am currently competent in. I also know the Twitter Bootstrap and UIKit framework, both which I like to use for projects. Learning and improving is something I believe in, and therefore also focus on: - PSD2HTML project that are not too complex - Joomla3 projects that are basic and that mostly need edits based on the skills above - Symfony2 projects that go up to a moderate complexity Quality websites (together with quality content) are the best to improve interaction with in visitors so I always try to deliver code that: - Is valid HTML and CSS - Keeps SEO in mind - Improve page loads (optimizing images, combining and minifying resources) - Passes any PHP/JS standards that the code might already be following Some examples of my code can also be found on github as pieter2627.

    I Typically prefer to program using Python 2.x or Python3.x, but I can also program in C++, C++11, C++14, Ruby, Javascript, php, php5, bash/sh, among others. I mainly prefer to work on and with a Linux base for the code that I develop due to the wide availability of many diverse and Free packages which simplify developing whole systems. I am not accredited by any organization, nor have I done much in publicly available projects and as such, I have a very limited selection in my portfolio currently. I am rated on and have a link to my profile in my resume.
