About me

Hello!

My name is Dejan Vjestica and I am a Full Stack JavaScript Web Developer based in Berlin. The timeline of my work history leading up to this began in 2003. I first started gaining experience in web technologies as a member of the IT department at America’s Development Foundation, where I used HTML/CSS to add and maintain their project pages. In 2007, I shifted towards photography and visual media where I developed my keen sense for esthetics working as a professional photographer for cruise lines. A few years after that, I worked as a freelance Graphic Designer, based in Budapest, Hungary.

I moved to Germany in 2013 and graduated as “Mediengestalter Digital und Druck,” specializing in Web Design and Development at OSZ Druck- und Digitaltechnik. As a part of my work, I designed and developed different projects using following technologies: HTML5, CSS3, Sass, JavaScript, jQuery, WordPress, PHP, MySql, and Git. I also have experience using Adobe Photoshop, Indesign, and Illustrator from my background in Graphic Design.

Now in 2018, I have successfully completed SPICED Academy’s Full Stack Web Development program. During the time of this course, I received professional training in a real life developer environment building applications, and working closely with senior developers to achieve set goals. Currently, I have been advancing and diversifying my skill set with the following tech stack:

JavaScript (ES5 & ES6) Frontend: HTML5, CSS3, Sass, W3.CSS, React.js, Redux Backend: Node.js, Express.js, Socket.IO, PostgreSQL Version-control system: Git | GitHub
