About Me

My name is Francesco Novy and I'm a Web Developer living in the lovely city of Innsbruck in Austria.

I love to make things on the web. My passion is front end development with HTML5, JavaScript and CSS. I strife for interoperability and usability as well as for modern and cross-browser UIs. My focus lies on providing a great user experience with modern technologies.

I currently work at Cropster, a company based in Austria & Sacramento which build software solutions for all things coffee. There, I am Technical Product Manager, which means that I coordinate one of our products with our technical team.

Apart from programming I love to read, both physical books and on my Kindle. I also like to play tennis or go skiing as well as to play a nice round of Mario Kart or Settlers of Catan with my friends and family.

About this website

This website has been built with modern web technology. It makes heavy use of CSS transitions and transforms. The skill bubbles are created with d3.js.

The website is powered by Typo3, which makes it easy to update my references and to enable multi language support.

The whole front end is built with Sass and Grunt to enable minified assets and other optimizations.
