Welcome to the profile and portfolio site of Alex Palma, web developer based in Melbourne, Australia.

I want to build things, improve myself, be productive and help others.

Coming from a background in records management I've come to Melbourne as part of achieving my goal of changing career paths and getting into the software industry.

My ultimate goals are to continue learning as much as I can, to make my contribution towards a more secure and robust future in technology.

When I’m not working I enjoy exploring new hobbies, the latest being sourdough, home-brewing and bonsai trees, and I always love camping by the coast with a group of friends for a weekend.

I have knowledge in:

  • React
  • Javascript
  • Node.js
  • Express.js
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Ruby
  • Git
  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • PostgreSQL
  • MongoDB

Projects completed:

Foxbat configurator — an online tool to assist customers of Foxbat, a small aircraft importer and customiser based in Australia, determine the layout of their instrument panel to streamline placing their order.

PhotoVow — a two-sided marketplace Ruby on Rails site connecting enthusiast photographers looking for work, with wedding planners searching for a photographer suited to their requirements and budget

DigitalPT — a digital personal trainer for people without gym experience. Group project @ Coder Academy
