Our speakers Folk-samlet

Robin Sandborg
@robrobro -

Robin trives aller best i overgangen fra analysefasen, når grunnidé og konsept utvikles. Han elsker å forvandle informasjon og inspirasjon til interaksjon.

Fra han starter et prosjekt går det alltid kort tid før han kan vise kunden en prototype med løsningsforslag. Ikke rart, verktøykassa hans er full av funksjonell HTML, CSS og Javascript. Og han er ikke redd for å bruke den.
