As frontend engineer at Blendle, Elmar Burke is confronted daily with the requirements of a modern web application. He has been dealing with web-related topics for many years and has been building more than 10 years of client-side web apps, back then with the help of Google Gears. Today he uses libraries like React and Redux or AltJS in his daily work. He doesn’t just limit himself to the browser, he is also familiar with NodeJS and CouchDB. Elmar is at home in the border area between Germany and the Netherlands – therefore he speaks German and Dutch fluently.
