About me

Andre Kramer

Web Developer & Panorama Enthousiast from Hengelo, Netherlands

I'm a Ruby on Rails developer and I push myself in applying something new in every project. I focus on delivering the best product possible, wether I need to create a solution in Ruby on Rails, Ember.js, Yii or in other various languages and frameworks I picked up. On one day I work on a API or authentication methods, on other days I'm more at the Frontend, creating a Ember.js app or Backbone.js powered plugin. In my spare time, I’ve been working with Krpano, helping the community, creating plugins, tours and interfaces for clients.

My Expertise

I code mainly in Ruby, but have various other skills. I'm a real geek and love finding code improvements, create re-usable plugins or tweaks that improve our workflow

Ruby on Rails

I have over 3 years experience with RoR. Together with 6 collegeas we form a Scrum team and create micro sites or platforms that need to stand for years.

Ember.js / Backbone.js

I picked this up, about a year ago and I'm loving it. It allows apps/website to be even
more user friendly and lets me focus on the user experience.

Google Analytics

Monitoring / Measuring the user's behaviour, creating funnels, set up goals and dashboards and writing reports for the client. Or for own improvement.

HTML5 / CSS3

Throw in some CSS, toy around with localStorage or the File API, no problem. CSS is not my main thing, but I'll pull my weight if needed.

PHP / MySQL

Before I switched to RoR, I've developed websites with PHP, mainly with the Yii Framework

Krpano

Unfamiliar by most, but I picked this skill up while I was a 3d Modeler. Create 360 degree tours using xml,flash and javascript.

Work Experience

Currently April 2011

Wirelab Creative

Web developer

I'm working daily with 6 other people in a scrum team on new and exciting (micro) websites that definitely are one of a kind. Some of the clients are Renault, Transavia, Disney and Dacia.

3d Artist / Concepting / Developer

Hired during my studies as a 3d artist, I evolved to a developer. I developed a flash plugin which allowed them to display their 3d models as a 360 tour. The following years I came up with new products to use in these tours.
