In 2014 I decided to switch direction in my career and move from digital policies to web development. In fact, the challenge was not so much about changing occupation, but rather a question of changing perspective on what I had done so far, and actually enjoyed doing – which happened to involve a good deal of websites’ creation and administration.
While it was not my primary focus, I came to realise that I had somehow acquired eight years experience in building and running more or less complex platforms as necessary supports to a variety of projects. There was in truth only one thing left for me to become a proper web developer: learning once and for all programming languages.
Here are some examples of websites, applications and themes that I built.
- Blue Pixel Art: a fun, accessible app to experiment with pixel art;
- Weekly Habits: a useful tool to organise your weekly habits;
- Bamboo Chat: a digital friend to share your thoughts with;
- Colour Dots: a multicolour version of Blue Pixel Art.
- Matalex Labs: the main site of our UK based partnership;
- Remember July 6th 2005: a full website dedicated to software patents;
- Ultimate Circle: the main website of the European nonprofit I used to run;
- Interop Wiki Project: a collaborative platform to foster interoperable systems;
- FFII UK: a one page site for European NGO FFII’s UK Chapter.
- Matalex Dark: a dark theme for a comfortable reading;
- Matalex Grey and Matalex Pink: two variations of Matalex Dark.
