About me

Maintaining servers and source code in different environments with high load of user activity,
I have gained knowledge about optimizing database- and web servers for maximum performance and minimum
response time. By direct customer contact and frontend development, I have taught myself a flair
for both user experience and persuasive design.

Profile

My name is Emil Moe I was born 30 years ago in Denmark. I speak native Danish, fluently English and have an under-standing for Spanish.
Besides my passion for travel-ling and experiencing the world I am also a full time educated and self taught web developer.

Developer

Through the years I have gained and maintained knowledge about leading frontend web technologies. I have been working with HTML, CSS and Javascript since 1999 and continue to challenge myself, as I find it important to always know what's going to be the next important technology in an emerging market.

Maintaining

I have many years experience maintaining existing websites for clients and their databases as well as the server. I believe it's as an important part of a product as the product itself, as an unmaintained product rapidly feels abandoned. When doing maintenance it's necessary that the clients and users won't experience any or only a minor downtime.

User Experience

In my years at The University of Aarhus I have been working with direct customer support, both face to face, email and phone support. Furthermore I have been working we various web implementations where it was crucial part of the product to be user friendly. See my portfolio for examples like Eduroam.

A wide array of skills

My many years in the business almost from the beginning has given me a wide array of skills,
that stretches to almost any aspect in the development cycle.

PHP, Laravel & Wordpress

Laravel has for more than 2 years been my number one framework of choice when it comes to PHP, it's flexibility and scalability means there are almost no limits for what can be done. I have been working in all areas of the Laravel framework.

Through time I have been serving different sites and blogs on the Wordpress platform. I am experienced in writing plugins, tweaks and of course changes to the platform itself.

JavaScript, Vue.js & AngularJS

Through increasingly writing more complex application in more advanced PHP frameworks the need for a frontend framework is also present. My choice when the complexity meets the necessity has been AngularJS and more recently Vue.js.

For smaller projects or when requirements defines it jQuery or the build-in Vanilla framework won't be a dealbreaker.

CSS, Bootstrap & Sassy

Reinventing the wheel is never making any progress fast, therefor I prefer to rely on pre-build and well tested frameworks. CSS is no difference from PHP and Javascript and so I build my application on the Twitter Bootstrap framework and compile everything with Sass for optimized performance.

MySQL

For almost any application it needs to have a set of data accessible. My choice has for many years been MySQL and recently MariaDB, though it has the same syntax. I have been doing almost anything with MySQL related to developing web application including optimizing for websites with more than 100,000 visitors per day.

Debian/Linux

As I was starting out in a very young age making my first websites, these needed a place and I also became curious how this was working. This led me to rent my own dedicated servers to experience and exercise server configuration. A decade later I now feel very confident in managing my and others servers.

Big Data & API

Nowadays it's hard not to have to writing application co-working with APIs it can either be internal JSON APIs or external. I have been working with many different but to name a few is social APIs such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and so on.

I was doing web scraping, data mining and combining these into uniform datasets long before it became a buzzword as I wanted to test my technical skills solely for fun.
