My name is Rocco Georgi and this is my portfolio page. It lists a bit of my educational and professional background along with skills and milestones that I find worth mentioning. There are dedicated pages for some projects and events. You can hire me as freelancing web technology expert (which is part of the reason why this page is always in desperate need of an update).
I think staying up-to-date with current technology is an essential duty as a software developer and I try to keep up with it.
When Node.js came out in 2009 I became interested and I maintained an open source node.js boilerplate (now outdated) for a while.
Blockchain and DLT technologies have become very interesting to me in 2016 and I am learning as much as I can.
Hybrid Apps, Ionic, Angular, TypeScript, Cordova and fastlane are my main professional topics currently.
I live in Frankfurt, Germany. I know a little German ... he's sitting over there.
In 1991 I started programming on a C64. Five years later I wanted to become an industrial designer because I liked the looks of my Colani-designed 486 SX 25 PC-Tower and drawing cars. Instead I opted for a university degree and studied Software Engineering and English Linguistics (M.A.).
In 1999 I started freelancing as a web developer during university and created a lot of MySQL/PHP/HTML/CSS code - the LAMP stack was a long-time friend of mine.
I did a one year internship at Siemens Travel Management in San Jose, USA in 2002/03 helping to build a data warehouse and reports generator.
In 2002 I developed a web-based real-estate management software: that was still used by some companies in 2014.
Freelancing as a full stack developer ever since I built hundreds of websites, forums, shops and other web-apps, also several mobile apps and even some games. I have worked on my own, for individuals, startups, and all other sizes of companies on equally small and big projects.
I usually deal with and help others with the following:
- past: jQuery, jQuery UI, Sencha ExtJS
- now: Angular, Ionic
- JS tools: Jasmine, Mocha, Chai, Node.js, npm
- HTML5, CSS3, Sass
- MySQL, MongoDB
- Git, Gerrit, Gitlab
- JIRA, Confluence, Trac, Redmine, Gimp
- Jekyll, some mild Ruby
- Scrum, Kanban, agile in general
I am currently especially interested in:
- Git workflows
- Chrome Developer Tools
- ECMAScript 6
- web components
- progressive web apps
- workshops, mentoring, know-how transfer
- Ethereum/Solidity development
- Blockchain and DLT in general
I also did development-related stuff like:
- API specifications (Swagger, Apiary)
- requirement analysis
- system analysis
- consulting clients
- educating co-workers
- workflow definitions
- quality assurance and code review
- managing offshore programmers
- technical writing
The web would be nothing without open source, we all depend on it. I try to contribute to open source projects whenever I get a chance.
