About me

HELLO!
Pekka

Web developer from Jyväskylä

Hello! My name is Pekka Piippa and I'm a web developer from Finland. I currently live in Jyväskylä where I previously studied Media Engineering in JAMK University of Applied Sciences. The purpose of the Degree Programme in Media Engineering is to train experts in digital media systems, online services, web design etc... I graduated in January 2017.

In 2015 I did an exchange period in Universidad Europea de Madrid in Spain where my studies included business management, advanced computer architectures, communication skills and basics of Spanish language.

What else

During my free time I like relax and charge my batteries for what is coming. I love doing sports and I'm a fan of football. I'm often either watching it or playing Fifa with my friends. I spend a lot of time with my friends and family and try to travel whenever I can. I'm also interested in getting to know new technologies from mobile phones to computers and everything in and between.

Skills!

What I do

CODE!

Website development

I have created multiple websites from the ground starting from the design process. I usually use Adobe Photoshop for the design and layouts. I often use Bootstrap to create responsive websites but I'm capable of doing the same work with just CSS and media queries. Javascript is not my strenght but I can do the basic stuff with it. I perceive myself as a front end coder.

WordPress

I have used WordPress in couple of my projects during my studies. I have knowledge how the platform works and interest to learn more in the future.

Basics from different programming languages

My studies in JAMK included several different programming languages from which I know at least the basics. C++, PHP, FLASH, XML

Interface and usability design

During my time in JAMK we studied interface and usability design as part of our degree. I think this is also something where you get better by just working with websites and design.

Images and videos

I can edit images and videos as well as do 3D models. Programs I have used include Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premier Pro, Sony Vegas Pro, 3DS Max and Adobe Illustrator.

I use daily Office tools

Like everyone else, I know how to use Office tools such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint effectively.

Online advertising

Online advertising is also close to me. My previous work in Keskisuomalainen Oyj included managing and and optimizing online advertising campaigns, developing advertising operations and managing online products. I also made an bachelors thesis about future of online advertising.

My website

WEBSITE!
Old website

My old website

My previous website as seen above was created using basic HTML, CSS and Javascript. I designed it myself and used Bootstrap to make it work perfectly on different screen sizes.

My current website

I felt like I needed to update my personal website and my areas of competence so I created a new website from the ground. No real design before coding so the development took time as I reformed it time after time. Again HTML, CSS, Javascript and Bootstrap. Tried to make the website minimalistic and easy to use. I will update the site from time to time and use it to show some of my recent works.
