About Me

My name is Sacha Schmid. I'm a front-end developer from Switzerland, interested in both interface design and web development. I work at Schwabe in Muttenz, Switzerland.

Currently, I am studying Computer Science at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland in Brugg, Switzerland and am on track to get my bachelor's degree in 2017.

I have previously had experience in front-end development while working with private clients, small companies, and a large Swiss department store, as well as a multitude of projects at university. You can see some of that work on my Projects page. Clients enjoy working with me because I am a disciplined worker who likes to bring his own ideas into the project at hand.

A keen interest in technology allows me to stay on top of the ever-evolving world of design and development. This way, my websites and applications use modern techniques, follow current and classical design trends, and achieve a pleasant user-experience. I have created websites and applications using a multitude of languages and tools.

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • PHP
  • SQL
  • Swift
  • .NET C#
  • Java
  • Haskell
  • Node.js
  • Sass
  • Angular
  • React
  • Git
  • Wordpress

Of course I am not always just sitting on the computer. I am very passionate about music, both consuming my favourite songs and creating music with my guitar. Whenever I can, I like to go to concerts and festivals and just enjoy the music and the people around me. Quite recently, I've also taken an interest in collecting vinyl.

Other than that, I like to watch TV shows or spend time at the cinema. Weather permitting, you might also find me on my bike or inline-skating all around Switzerland.
