Hello, I’m Stefan. I’m a freelance front-end developer from Germany based in Hamburg and Velbert.

As an advocate for a free internet which everyone should be able to use everywhere and without restrictions, I try to reduce the complexity of modern “best practices”.

My focus is on HTML, CSS, progressive enhancement and accessibility. When I use JavaScript, I like to limit myself to browser APIs whenever possible. The web has come a long way. Features that used to require libraries or frameworks can now easily be implemented using native JavaScript. Such an approach keeps the codebase small, avoids bugs, and greatly improves performance.

Since 2004 I have been working as a full-time freelancer.
