I'm Romina Halabi, a web developer based in Denver, Colorado. I've been building websites since AOL was a household name and dial-up modems were obligatory.
Since then, web applications have evolved, and so have my skills in building them.


My skills include:

  • Java: as a Java developer, I have experience with Java 8 and 9, Spring/Thymeleaf, Spark, Gradle, Webservices, Hibernate, JavaFX, and testing with JUnit. My favorite IDE is IntelliJ, but I'm also experienced with Eclipse and BlueJ.
  • Back-End Development: building RESTful production-grade web applications in Ruby on Rails, WordPress, and Node.js.
  • Front-End Development: vanilla JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, SCSS, jQuery, and AJAX.
  • Web Design: Adobe Creative Suite (including Photoshop); wireframing with Figma, Balsamiq, and Illustrator.
  • Databases: MySQL, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL
  • DVCS: Git, Github, and Bitbucket
  • Production Deployment: Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cloudways, ServerPilot, Heroku, SiteGround, DreamHost, and GoDaddy
