Hi there, I'm Adrian
I am a UX Front End Developer based in Dublin, Ireland. I focus on responsive front end development, CSS architecture and user experience. I run two local front-end meetups (DublinCSS and CodePen Dublin) and I am part of the organising team behind Dublin UX. Recently I have started speaking at international events and I have written a number of articles published by renowned online magazines.
I have over twelve years of experience, accumulated as I was being employed in web agencies, in-house teams, hired as a contractor or working on my own as a freelancer. I help companies of all sizes write better code on the presentation layer and create high performance scalable user interfaces.

2017 has brought my debut as a speaker in an international event. Together with the local meetups I'm running (DublinCSS and CodePen Dublin) or help running (Dublin UX), I think this warrants dedicating a section to these activities.
