About Me

Chris Otten | Front-end Web Developer

I am a Front End Developer for eSTS. I have 1 year of experience with front end web development and optimization, working with real estate and government software solutions.

I am a passionate and creative front end developer. I specialize in front end development: building layouts with HTML and CSS and writing great JavaScript that incorporates responsive web design. I am able to fill the whole spectrum, beginning with planning and design to development. I follow web standards and ensure that my code is cross-browser compatible.

I like to collaborate and work in a agile environment. I enjoy working closely with information architects and designers. Together, a good designer and good developer can work out better solutions to design problems than either could alone. — Need a creative developer? Get in touch
