Experience

  • US Civil Rights Trail
    https://civilrightstrail.com/

    I was responsible for the full development of this website starting from the server set up, Jenkins build server configuration, and build process.

    The project is based on WordPress with Composer in the root of its architecture. I also created a special build process for the theme which uses the newest version of Webpack. The site also heavily relies on Google Maps API.

  • Catered Bowl
    https://cateredbowl.com/

    Catered Bowl is a very simple and lightweight WordPress based website. Similar to other websites, it uses a Composer-based architecture and Webpack-based build process. I was also responsible for setting up Jenkins, the build process as well as the server configuration. It also uses a refactored version of a store locator plugin.

  • Extremely High Traffic Media Website

    This project was one of the biggest achievements of my career—an extremely high traffic project serving up to 1.5 million users per day. I worked on it for three years as a senior front-end developer.

    My everyday tasks mainly focused on code quality and optimization to achieve the best performance and load times under various conditions. This included building back-end tools supporting the project, some of them were plain PHP/jQuery applications and some of the tools were already written in Angular.

    The project was built by an agile team working in a scrum environment. Unfortunately, I am unable to share the link to the project.

  • OS Library | WordPress Architecture Stack and Starter Theme
    https://github.com/LowGravityPL/RaccoonWP

    My own open-source library used as a starter kit for building optimal, performant WordPress architectures. It uses plenty of best practices and tools which are state of the art in 2018 (for example, Webpack 4).

    It focuses on security, ease of configuration of environments, and improved deployments and performance. The main selling point is that it tackles is data separation. It also comes with a starter theme based on Twig. The library was released recently but the most of the code of this library runs on production websites that I've built in the past.

  • LowGravity.pl
    https://lowgravity.pl

    This is my own company website for the projects I made until 2013 (mostly for the sports industry). The website contains plenty of WordPress articles that I authored mostly in 2012-2013 and much of the knowledge, advice, and practices are still applicable even after so many years.

    As I stopped working for sports clients, it has not been updated in five years, but it still showcases some of my best work of my professional career.
