My name is Monica Messaggi Kaya and currently I am a Software Engineer at Bodleian Libraries - University of Oxford.
I have a design / webdesign inclination with experience in programming. I try to keep myself current with the new technologies and trends, seeking training where needed and participating in events. My main interests at the moment lie in web and mobile applications, UX/UI and front-end development.
I believe in the magic of little things, a spice, a herb, a touch, a thought...
Tools of the trade
"The right tool for the job". I have my favourites and could try anything that makes the task more enjoyable. Tools & areas of development at the moment are:
- Adobe Design Suite: Photoshop, Illustrator, In Design
- HTML5, CSS3 (Sass/Libsass), Grunt, Bower, Web applications, Mobile applications and Web apps
- Front-end frameworks (Foundation, Bootstrap, Pure, Semantic UI)
- Content Management Systems (Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, Moodle)
- Favourite editors: SublimeText & Notepad++ (just because has integrated ftp)
- Wireframing, prototyping, presentation and testing: Balsamiq Mockups and InVision App
