The Web.
My Playground!

Hello, I am Mario Volke,
Freelance Web Application Developer from Munich.


My clients include agencies, startups and other companies. On a project basis I join together with other freelancers or agencies to fulfill large projects or special requirements of my clients.

I am working as a professional web developer since 2006. Early I began to teach myself in software development. Consequently I studied at the University of Ulm for Bachelor of Computer Science and finished my studies with the degree Master of Computer Science at TU Munich in 2012.

During my work I always focus on the end user. Usability and solid design are not strictly core tasks for me as a developer, but I still set great value upon it. Good products deserve excellent design.

Today, web content is available on all kinds of platforms: desktop, tablets, mobile and up to the big TV screen. The application of Responsive web design leads to challenges in layout design and development. I will gladly give advice and assist you.

The work with frontend- and backend-technologies belongs to my daily tasks. You can find an extensive list of my skills further down on this page.

If you have questions or offerings, please contact me at any time.

Not available until end of June 2014
