I started out studying Classics at the University of Cambridge. In 2013 I moved to the Netherlands to study for a Master’s at Leiden University. In my spare time I volunteered at the Expatriate Archive Centre in the Hague. They needed someone to make them a new website, so I decided to learn HTML and CSS.
So, are you looking for a hard worker who is keen to learn? Do you have a challenging and supportive environment to offer? If so, let's get in touch!
I was asked to create a simple website with a blog for the Expatriate Archive Centre, an organisation that collects historical documents and allows researchers access to them.
This project was my first opportunity to work with code within an organisation. There are some things I would do differently now, such as considering the implications for responsive design before implementing a website aimed at desktop users and writing neater CSS to make the code more readable for myself and others. While working on my personal website I have paid closer attention to both of these issues.
