Stefanie Laharnar

I'm a Senior Frontend Developer looking back to more than 15 years of experience in the field of frontend development (native apps, webapps, websites, responsive), Accessibility and Design. Based on my experience with both areas, design and coding, I'm usually advising both for best practices usability-wise and working together.

I'm specialized in pixel-perfect frontend implementation, Accessibility (WCAG 2.0 or BITV 2.0), Responsive/Mobile implementations, large-scale Sass/LESS/CSS architecture, automated HTML/CSS testing and passionate about Coding Standards.
