UI DEV & DESIGN
Building software interfaces is programming… and  it's UX… and it's design. At this point you can't be a frontend developer without knowing the fundamentals of typography, color theory, and user behavior as it pertains to software. The 21st century UI designer must understand how functional programming and optimized algorithms impact the crafting of user experiences in Javascript. The age of the zealot is long over. Development and design have merged. We are all "creative" & "pragmatic" now.

Paul Clegg
Senior Web Developer, 
Collabnet

I design and build UI interfaces in HTML/CSS/JS. I'm mostly self taught, bootcamp taught, and team member taught. I have spent the last decade in vanilla JS/ES5/ES6,  imperative frameworks like Angular 🤮, and declarative libraries like React 👏. 20% of that time has been in software like Sketch and Invision putting together UX architecture.

 

I DO NOT have a CS focus and have not spent a lot of time contemplating the Gang of Four design patterns in C++ or white boarding algorithms to traverse linked lists with O(log n) time complexity. I mean we can talk about it but that's not my jam.

 

My jam is keeping up with UX patterns that are succeeding in enterprise and consumer interfaces, prototyping UI, and then building responsive and elegant UI components that scale to millions of users within 2-3 week agile release cycles. Give me an endpoint and I can give you the world!

 

Let me know if you think that there is a  place for me on your team and we'll make it happen. Cheers!
