Hello, I'm Roberto Preste

I develop websites using WordPress, Python and more

Full-stack Web Developer

I develop responsive and effective websites for freelancers, bloggers and small companies.

I can take care of both the design and the front- and back-end implementation of a website, applying my personal styling touch without loosing sight of my customer’s requests.

My Story

After my MSc in Molecular Biology, I attended an internship in Web Development in Cambridge, UK, during which I started learning and applying different front- and back-end techniques and platforms to create stunning websites.

I’m currently working as a Bioinformatician and Web Developer at BROWSer, a University spin-off company that I co-founded, while doing my PhD in Bioinformatics.

If you need a great website for either yourself or your company, good news for you, I’m currently available for hiring, also from remote. Drop me a line to explain your needs and we’ll arrange something together!

WordPress

For freelancers and business websites, my usual choice is WordPress, given its broad capabilities and customization options. I use a wide range of both free and premium themes, based on the design and functionality requested.

Python

I usually employ the Python programming language together with a web framework like Flask for websites needing custom database integration and advanced functions. Mostly this regards biological databases, but the choice is endless.

HTML, CSS, JS

These are the foundations of Web Development, and can be used for any task, from creating a complete website to developing specific snippets to be integrated in an existing platform. I usually employ this for landing pages.
