Experience

  • Happy Green (Development)
    https://www.happygreen.se/

    This website was built with Magento 2. The project involved a data migration, setting up the server (Nginx, FPM, Varnish, Redis, SSL using Let's Encrypt), and an application deployment that was optimized live for full page cache use (Varnish). I also handled the complete blog module development from scratch with a portfolio add-on which has a jQuery-based file uploader.
