Hello there and welcome to my website!
My name is Borut Balažek, and I am a Full-Stack Web Developer based in Slovenia, Europe, who enjoys building things.
Currently available for freelance or full-time work. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I first became interested in web development around 15 years ago. In the beginning, I started coding very basic HTML websites, but with years of hard work and learning, I got into more and more complex projects. Nowadays I mostly develop custom web and hybrid mobile/desktop applications, but I still do have extensive knowledge of developing websites, eCommerce shops and custom themes/plugins for WordPress.
My primary stack is NodeJS or Symfony for backend, React for frontend and React Native for mobile apps. In addition to the primary stack, I also use Typescript, CakePHP, Docker on a daily basis, and C#, Python, Go, MongoDB and Elasticseach for my personal projects. You can view the full list of my skills at Visual CV.
When I do not work on commercial projects for my clients/employer, I learn, work and experiment with machine learning and Game Development in Unity & Unreal Engine.
My mother language is Slovenian, but I also fluently speak English and German.
My traits are proactivity, reliability, adaptability, dedication and perfectionism.
Outside the office, I enjoy time with my girlfriend and my two dogs.
I have already worked for many companies and agencies. Here, just to list a few: Philips, RWE, Innogy, Dannon, Einrichtungspartnerring VME, LesMills, Radenska, Union, Medex, Diggit, Planet Tuš and many more.
My primary workflow and communication tools are Slack, Github, Trello.
I am also an open-source contributor. Here is a short list of a few of my open-source projects: a symfony boilerplate, a BabylonJS starter kit, a boilerplate for contests / prizegames, a slack-like chat app, a local photo manager app, and many more. Please visit my GitHub account, to view all of them.
