In my over 10 years as a web developer I mostly positioned myself as a generalist, remember the term Webdesigner?
Always interested in graphic design, I also developed skills in device agnostic UI design and implementation of these designs in web products (see: v3.benedikt.gr for example projects).
What I think about the modern web
The web is a often bloated and over-engineered. I always seek to avoid accumulating too much dependencies, especially at runtime (e.g. compiling code with svelte or other tools instead of shipping the runtime to the user).
I try to stay updated on trends but never to be trapped by them.
Outside of work
To mitigate sitting in front of the screen for endless hours, I like going for a run at Berlin's famous closed down airport Tempelhofer Feld or shoot some hoops at the many open courts around the city.
Out of my passionate hate for cars in dense populated cities, I love joining Critial Mass events on a regular basis to hinder unsustainable private transport and increase attention for cyclists.
Thanks for your interest in me, you made it to the end, very nice.
