Frontend Developer

Introduction

Hi, I'm Rico - a passionate Frontend Developer from nothern Germany.

Being a frontend developer - to me - means to research; it means to test; and it means to adapt constantly.

Every day brings new technologies, new trends or exciting tooling. Sometimes, it is hard to tell between those to stay and those that are merely a storm in a teacup. I consider it both my responsibility and passion to compile all this together with my experience into next generation frontends that match the customer's needs and budget!

Besides coding, I also love to play music and video games.
