Hello

I'm Dominick D'Aniello a freelance front end developer specializing in mobile, web, and interactivity

Mobile

I have over 7 years of experience building great apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, and the mobile web.

I have developed both fully native applications in Objective-C and Java as well as hybrid applications using both Titanium and PhoneGap (Including custom plugins) that combine the rapid development and cross platform deployment of HTML5 with the performance and capabilities of native applications.

Web

I specialize in developing dynamic client side experiences that run on a myriad of browsers and devices. I strive to maintain clean, elegant code, and am a big proponent of responsive design.

I have a great deal of experience with many modern frontend technologies including CoffeeScript, SASS, Backbone, Handlebars, RequireJS, and jQuery. I have also worked with a handful of backend technologies including CakePHP, Django, and Ruby on Rails.

Interactivity

I have a passion for creating unique interactive content and games. I am the founder and lead developer of SOL3 Studios, focused on creating unique game experiences for desktop and mobile.

I love to work with technology that challenges the ways we traditionally interact with our computers. I have worked with Microsoft Kinect, LEAP Motion, the Oculous Rift, and have even built a custom banjo controller for a game I developed called Oh No Banjo.
