Stefan Klokgieters

I'm Stefan Klokgieters and am Lead developer - Front-end at StudyPortals where I'm helping to build the best study choice platforms possible!

I really love building online products which not only look well but also work great. Mobile is really my thing, in particular mobile first combined with well thought responsive design patterns.

In my spare time I watch a lot of movies and series, especially sci-fi and action-adventure. But off course the occasional sitcom is also highly appreciated. Furthermore, I love to cook and sometimes experiment while doing so.

Since being a developer is a sitting profession I try to get enough exercise during my weekly Muay Thai trainings. A healthy body equals a healthy mind, something that we often tend to forget.

Responsive Design

Creating awesome mobile first experiences is what a really stand for. When you talk about responsive design people often only think about the lay-out aspect but it's much more. In particular, the differences in user behavior, progressive web app support and page performance.

Performance Optimization

Like most of you know, a well thought and slick looking website doesn't necessarily "perform" well. Page performance is just as important as having a nice looking website which facilitates a good user experience. Therefore, I am focusing a lot at StudyPortals on our overall page performance, something I really enjoy!

Student Community & Loyalty

With my product scrum team a.k.a. "The Ultimate Avengers" we are working hard on improving the portals student loyalty and community. This mainly revolves around letting our users create an account with us so we can help them with managing and keeping track of their study choice journey via their account.
