    (Full stack) Web Developer. I create rich applications for the Internet and mobile platforms. Both in the front-end and in the back-end. Specialised in JavaScript, React, Node.js, TypeScript, and modern front-end.

    My name is Gaya Kessler, a developer living in the Netherlands. Opinionated, always ready for a discussion, and to help build something great.

    My passion is to create the best for the web, always keeping up with the latest technologies and trends. This allows me to work on projects with different perspectives, and thus know what works and what doesn’t.

    I create simple solutions to complex problems.

    What I am Good at

    My main value I provide is that I can take a complex subject and turn it into something understandable. This way even starting programmers can follow what the complex parts of your product are doing.

    I love sharing my knowledge and like to teach and mentor developers while I work on projects. This way the team I am working with will get a bit of my experience transferred to them.

    My believe is that I bring more value to the product if I teach my ways to the current development team.

    My work is at its best in agile environments, and with remote teams. On site is also possible.

    Technologies I Excel at

    Subjects I mainly focus on are JavaScript (and TypeScript), back-end JavaScript using Node.js, front-end development, React, Redux, WebPack, Single Page Applications / Progressive Web Apps, and mobile apps (React Native).

    Professional Experience

    I have been working in web development professionally from 2006. Since then, I’ve seen a lot of trends come and go, which has formed a solid opinion on what works, and what doesn’t, what sticks, and what doesn’t.

    I also occasionally speak at meetups, conferences, and do in-company training about technology and trends.

    In the past I have worked on projects of various sizes. This helped me in choosing the right tool for the job. From small JavaScript widgets to full-blown applications; anything is possible.
