Cheers! my name is Irene Iaccio

Avatar I’m a freelance Javascript developer with more than 10 years of experience in tech.

I have worked extensively in e-commerce projects and complex applications. I spent the best years of my life developing themes and extensions for Magento. I like to wander through thousands of different technologies and solve mysterious and bad bugs.

Coding skills

I’m focused on the Javascript ecosystem with pleasant forays into the PHP world. I’ve a strong experience in e-commerce that includes the use of API REST and GraphQL, of the main search engines, integrations with payment systems and third-party services.

I really don’t have a favorite stack, I’m first and foremost a software developer. Languages and frameworks are just tools to achieve broader goals. However, I have worked with all the major javascript frameworks, Vue, React and Angular. In my toolbox I have Typescript, MongoDb, Docker (not necessarily in that order) and more.

Freelance by choice

I freelance because I want to freelance, I’m not available to work as a full time employee. I have a few clients at a time and I choose them carefully, I love them all and I believe it’s mutual. I try to build long-lasting relationships based on trust and communication.

My services mainly include coding and debugging, but I am also able to do planning, mentoring, code reviews, team management, technical and functional analysis, consulting and refactoring of legacy projects.

Open source

In my daily work I use a lot of tools developed by other people, so I also try in my own little way to share some of the things I do. I made two tools in php for Final Cut users: Fast Titles and Final cut to motion. Some modules for Magento, for example the newsletter popup, the Instagram widget and a gulpfile in order to try to speed up the compilation of the less on Magento2. And my (current) favorite ludopathy an api based platform in node/express to create board games online (work in progress).

I also contribute to Vue Storefront, a very cool Open Source project with a large community and a lot of contributors around the world.

Public speaking

My very first public speaking experience.
