Hi! I'm Justine, 33, based in Amsterdam, a freelance web developer from France with a lifelong passion for crafting.
Previously dressmaker, I transitioned from sewing clothes to coding websites! With a blend of creativity and newly acquired programming skills, I want to help bring your ideas to life.
In 2020, I decided to dive into web development, and completed a 6-month intensive course at OpenClassrooms, earning the Web Developer certificate (equivalent to Associate degree).
Whether it's building responsive websites from the ground up, optimizing a site's performance and SEO, or renewing the entire design, I make it my goal to use everything I've learned in the past three years to ensure a seamless user experience and meet everyone's expectations.
I started the Web Developer course at OpenClassrooms with very little knowledge about programming, but a growing interest. The course was split into 7 projects, each one of them challenging me to learn something new and to discover a different aspect of being a web developer, with various challenges and missions to complete, with products to deliver, just like it would be in a professional environment.
There, I started learning the basics of HTML and CSS, as well as the importance of responsive design and mobile-first in any web application.
I studied SEO and how to make a website more visible on the web by identifying the good practices to apply to a specific case, and bad practices to avoid and fix.
I learned about accessibility optimization, in the perspective to make the web a better place for people with disabilities. This starts with making a website more readable, and keyboard navigation easier, and optimizing the content to be accessible by screen readers, from picture descriptions to menus that are easy to access and to use.
