  • Lund University (Development)

    Lund University is one of Sweden's largest universities. I was part of the team that in 2012 built and later helped maintain their new website on Drupal. We integrated with external university systems and also built a "site factory" where administrators could add and manage a local website for the university faculties.

  • Currency Converter (Development)

    As part of my recent deep dive into React, I built a currency converter to help me keep track of exchange rates while I travel. (Due to not being able to use HTTPS with, automatic fetching of rates is disabled.)

  • Calorie Counter (Development)

    Hobby project to practice full-stack JavaScript development. The back end is a REST API created with Express, using MongoDB as storage. The front end is using React. In this project, I increased my knowledge about API design, authentication and security (both on the front-end and back-end), as well as React design patterns. I implemented a filtering system on both date and time, which required quite a complex database query. The system also has three user roles, all with different permissions. (If the app is initially slow, it means the back-end booting up from sleep.)

  • ESS (Development)

    The European Spallation Source (ESS) is one of the largest science and technology infrastructure projects that are being built today. Together with my team at Digitalist Sweden I planned, built, and delivered their new website in Drupal. My main focus was on overall architecture and front-end development as well as client relations and product deliverance.
