Toronto Web Developer, Adam Sawicki
~ adamsawicki$ npm run intro
Hey! I'm Adam Sawicki, I'm a web developer, and I live in Toronto. As a web developer I work with a robust arsenal of frontend and backend technologies. I regularly keep up with new innovations, libraries, and platforms that I can leverage in my own development. In addition, I have extensive experience integrating ecommerce platforms and APIs. I’m comfortable working independently and as part of a team. I have experience working in Scrum teams and I am familiar with Scrum and Agile methodology. My philosophy is using the best tool for the job, not necessarily the tool I'm most comfortable with. I thrive on facing challenges and learning new web technologies.
I've learned a lot, I'm currently learning some things, and I'm eager to learn more.

Websites / Projects
I've worked on 100+ websites during my web dev career so far. Below are a small number of the sites/projects I've been a part of. Please read the descriptions below to learn about my role in these projects.
*note: Because some of these projects were completed years ago (and the constantly evolving nature of the Internet), they may have been updated/changed by the owner(s) and/or different developer(s) since I last worked on them.
Company Name was built with Laravel. The site supported making offers on domains, negotiating prices, purchasing names, and even financing through Stripe. Unfortunately, this site is not live anymore.
Attending the University of Toronto and Centennial College afforded me an education that was both theoretical and practical. My double degree in New Media and English from the University of Toronto provided me with a strong understanding of design and development concepts. In addition to my University experience, I also gained practical knowledge through the completion of Centennial College's Interactive Digital Media Certificate program.
