Hello, my name is

Benoît Burgener

I’m a front-end developer from Switzerland, currently working at Liip in Lausanne.

I’ve been designing and coding websites for quite some time now. After creating my first web page around 2001 — with one of these free generators you could find online — I quickly learned the fundamentals of HTML & CSS.

Knowing early this was an activity I enjoyed, it allowed me to shape my studies around development and creation. I learned a lot during my apprenticeship and even more later in various positions as a freelance or in start-ups and agencies.

Today I do my best to craft meaningful, performant and accessible experiences; my current favorites being components libraries and web apps development with Vue.js.
