Johannes Borgström 🇸🇪 Stockholm
I have been playing music for as long as I can remember. Starting bands, writing songs, and touring with different artists. I've always brought my computer along next to my bass guitar, and spent all of my spare time (and there is a lot, believe me) learning how to code and design. I've built web pages, iOS apps and WYSIWYG editors, html5 animations, web apps and a word processor for MacOS.
For a long time, I thought I wanted to work as a graphic designer but often found myself writing scripts to automate tedious tasks instead. At some point I just admitted to myself that it was programming that I really loved and wanted to spend my time on.
For the last four years, I have been working as a Web Designer/Front End Developer for the Marketing department at a large online travel agency. I've done my best to speed up their workflow and provide easy solutions to turn raw text into finished campaign pages. I've also been responsible for building web contests, creating banners and making entire web pages for their in-house campaigns. The biggest challenge has been that no two projects have been the same. But on the other hand, that did keep me on my toes the whole time. I liked that.
