Hi, I’m Baldur Bjarnason, and I’m available for consulting and web dev work
I’ve been making websites for over twenty-five years, working as a web developer (front-end, back-end, or full-stack) for both companies and charities, small and large, in a variety of programming languages.
I’ve written two books, a course, and a video series on topics related to software development and have been writing about web development online for years.
Projects and code I’ve worked on are being used in production on a number of ecommerce and business sites across the world.
I strongly prefer non-framework solutions – not because I can’t but because standard JS is usually the most cost-effective and efficient approach for most web software projects.
Email me to see how I can help you.
