Janice Shaw

Web Developer

About me

I am an all-round web developer with a wide range of experience of over 17 years in web development. In my last permanent role I worked as part of a team using Agile methodologies (SCRUM). I've spent a lot of time making responsive layouts with Bootstrap front-end framework and Sass for a range of mobile devices.

I am currently based in Zurich and recently completed the Full-stack development course at the SIT Academy. I am available for consultant and permanent development roles.

When I'm not working I enjoy playing the guitar, jamming with friends, learning to play the drums and piano, practising my German and photography.

Projects I've made in my spare time to learn new web technologies.
