My name is Michael Walther. I’m a frontend developer focused on writing clean,
accessible websites with semantic and optimized code. I was born in the late 80s in
Bad Salzungen (Thuringia) and currently live in Leipzig (Saxony).
I was already interested in computers since i was a little boy which is actually the
reason why I am kind of addicted to the whole digital world.
Later I studied “Media Information Technology” at the University of Applied Sciences
Schmalkalden where I took a special interest in Webdesign especially corporate
design and typography. During this time I initially worked as a freelancer and did
some basic works as websites and printable products.
I graduated with the master thesis on the topic “typography on the web” and started
to work in an agency called pluspol interactive. Since
then my passion for web design has increased each day and I was able to focus my
coding skills on front-end development.
I work with PhpStorm, Sketch, Invision, Adobe CC and Gulp/Grunt. Popular frameworks
like Foundation are daily business for me so I know how to deal with versioning
management like git.
Currently I’m working together with my dog ‘Spike’ at datenwerk. Since it is not
enough for me I am still busy as a freelancer so feel free to say hi.
