What is the hottest front-end tech these days?
React with its growing ecosystem! I’m so excited about how it's evolving and definitely moving in the right direction. After introducing React Hooks and the Context API, the code becomes so much cleaner and easier to read.
What is a key attribute of a great UI, in your opinion?
UI should be clean and minimalistic both from the UX and UI perspective, so that you want to come back and play with those cute animations again and again.
What's your favorite front-end hack?
I love using the command line and git hacks the most. With the magical git rebase, it’s possible to integrate changes from one branch to another. But the developer should always be aware of when and how to use it to avoid side effects - especially when working with a large team!
What’s your favorite comfort food?
Baked salmon! And Swedish cinnamon buns with a cup of tea for dessert.
What's on your "bucket list"?
Visiting the Faroe Islands and completing one of the Camino de Santiago routes on foot, through Northern Spain.
