About

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.

To evolve as a software developer and consultant I constantly do reasearch and did presented at a few conferences, mostly about JavaScript on mobile devices. Some of my writing was published by others and I conducted several workshops for IT departments and individuals.

When Node.js came out in 2009 I became interested and I maintained an open source node.js boilerplate (now outdated) for a while.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.

Background

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.

In 2006 I started focusing mainly on JavaScript in mobile browsers. Later I co-founded a business called PavingWays Ltd. to bundle research and consulting for clients mainly in the UK.

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.
