I'm Michael VanderpoortenYungPanda

Creative freelance app developer and lecturer who helps you build better interactive apps for web and mobile

I coach

Is your team inexperienced with a new technology or tool? I'll give a practical hands-on training to get them up and running while avoiding common mistakes.

Looking for technical or UI/UX advice throughout your project? I help you or your team with questions and advice as a full-time go-to mentor on a retainer basis.

Working with me

  • Stack

    Although I have a wide range of known technologies, I generally work with these the most:

    • React
    • React Native
    • Laravel PHP
    • NodeJS
  • Ownership

    Being self-employed and having ran an agency I'm used to taking ownership of every project I work on, meaning you’ll spend less time micro-managing.

  • Usability

    As a designer and developer I care a lot about user experience. This helps me spot usability mistakes during development or technical difficulties in the design phase.

  • Communication

    I’m not an agency and won’t act like one. I believe clear and honest communication, together with flexibility, are key to making a project successful.
