    About me

    My name is Joel Yourstone and I'm a fullstack developer at Avensia, working with an Episerver/React/Redux/Typescript stack. 

    I've been working with web development professionally since I started my first freelance IT company when I was 16 (in 2010). I started my journey with the (in?)famous HTML/CSS/jQuery stack, evolved with PHP/SQL and now work with C#.NET on Episerver Commerce projects together with modern Javascript technologies.

    Performance has always been one of my biggest interests in web development, from optimizing stored procedures in SQL Server to making sure every frame is rendered within 16.6ms in the browser.
