First steps into modern web development
I had the possibility to build a corporate client. Without much references in this domain, Nils Andriessen, CEO of the startup Paramair assigned me with the job to build a corporate website for Paramair.
The requirements were straig forward:
- Product pages with comprehensive product information, data sheets, image gallery
- Contact form feature to get in touch for each product
- Various static sites with content about the company, portfolio, values and mission, legal information
With some hints and technial guidance by Manuel, I set up a professional WordPress project with Composer and NPM based on the Bedrock boilerplate by roots.io. Local, staging and production environments and a solid deployment process powered with GitLab CI. I developed a custom WordPress theme based on the starter theme Sage, also from roots.io. Because I wanted to deeply understand Frontend design, I decided against the use of Bootstrap and instead wrote tons of (unmaintanable) CSS code.
The Paramair GmbH got a solid website that met their business requirements and is until these days up and running.
