Paolo Cavanna

Front end developer

A front end developer with a healthy appetite for interactive design and everything digital. I like to make things happen, and I like them to happen as "awesomely" as possible. If you'd like to share some thoughts or just say CIAO! do get in touch.


I live in Vercelli, Italy and I work as lead front end developer at MotorK company in Milan.

I came from a humanistic background and, thus it doesn't look like a normal path heading to transform me into a code nerd, I took advantage from my classical studies and my master degree in arts.

My first encounter with the world of web was more SEO oriented. I got more and more into the web world and I decided to turn this passion into a job.

Skills & competences

Everyday, I focus my attention and my efforts on front end development and its coding weapons: HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Like all web developers, I have to put up with bug-ridden Internet Explorer: consequently, I am now familiar with efficient cross browser coding principles, starting from a solid HTML base and all the way through to clean CSS and unobtrusive JavaScript.

I work with AJAX based applications on a daily basis, playing with JSON and XML, especially when fetching data from the major social networks through their APIs.

With the advent of new and exciting web technologies such as HTML5 and CSS3 coming towards, I work everyday to keep up to date and follow the road of progressive enhancement, helping people live a great browsing experience.

All my code is hand written, in order to take full control of it, to produce it in the most standard compliant, readable and reusable possible.

It's not the funniest part of being a front end developer, but I'm also experienced in building e-mail templates with the old fashioned table layout technique.

Besides my coding skills, I always pay attention to SEO principles, with the capability to endorse the optimisation specialists with a lightweight, agile and flexible code, that makes both search engines and users happy!
