A creative guy turning ideas into beautiful things

My Working Place

"Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I will remember. Involve me and I will understand."

My name is Anele Maqanda. I'm a web developer from South Africa, I've moved around the country but currently living in Cape Town. (PermanentlyHopefully)
I create beautiful, usable, professional websites using best practice accessibility and the latest W3C web standards guidelines, resulting in semantic and seo friendly XHTML and CSS. All my websites are lovingly hand coded.

My CMS of choice is Wordpress sometimes Joomla but mostly Wordpress. Currently i'm teaching myself, Java for General Development but mostly for Android Development

My Skill Sets

My expertise and interest lies in front-end technologies, including HTML/5, CSS, JavaScript (as well as frameworks like jQuery). My server side skills revolve around PHP and MySql Database

  • XHTML 90%

  • CSS 100%

  • SCSS 55%

  • WordPress 90%

  • PHP 70%

  • Laravel (for API Dev) 50%

  • MySQL85%

  • AngularJs 1.x.x 75%

  • JavaScript 75%

Why Choose Me?

Responsive design is a concept where you build your website once and then format it so it can adapt to any screen size that accesses it. I use HTML5 and CSS to build the sites and set parameters so the content will resize itself whether the user is in vertical or horizontal viewing mode, on a tablet, desktop or smartphone or even a screen as large as a television.
Many people still view minimalist designs as boring. But there’s a real art to effective minimal website designs, something not all designers can effectively master. When you limit the number of graphic elements you use and put the focus on negative space and typography, a good eye for spacing and proportion becomes crucial.
