About

image of Katie Hansen

I believe that each individual should have the opportunity to express their unique ideas. It is my mission to contribute to a world where these ideas are accessible to everyone by showcasing them as elegant, yet functional web pages. I am here to help build a platform through which your ideas can be shared with the world.

I gravitated towards software development after realizing its perfect union of problem solving and visual creativity. Those were two skills I rarely exercised in my previous career, and I enjoyed the challenge of the task. Nothing is more satisfying than the ‘ah-ha’ moment you get after solving a complex problem, or bringing an idea to life.

As a self taught developer, there is still much I want to learn and I enjoy every day spent learning new skills and building projects. When I am not coding or working on projects, you can find me running, baking, reading or traveling to all corners of the world.

What I Do

Design

I work to ensure that all of my designs look beautiful and function properly on every screen size by using progressive enhancement techniques and cross browser testing.

Front-End

I use technologies including HTML, CSS, JavaScript and React to build simple yet elegant websites. I work to keep my code efficient, organized, and always use current best practices.

Back-End

I use technologies including Node.js, Express, SQL and PostgreSQL to build my back-end applications. I use test driven development to make sure my code functions in any scenario.
