I am Volker Andres,
software developer
from St.Gallen,
Switzerland

I am an experienced developer (9+ years) who is now available as freelancer. I am specialized in custom-made software solutions in the area of Web and App. My favorite technologies are PHP, Yii, Angular, PhoneGap/Cordova, Ionic and Flutter.

Services

Here you can find an overview of the services I provide. It doesn't matter for me, if you want me alone or as a part of a team. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

Hybird apps with Ionic and Cordova

Hybird apps with Ionic and Cordova

When it comes to app development I'am specialized in hybrid solutions. Simply said, the solution is to run a website inside the native app. In this case, as the opposite to a website running in a mobile browser, it has access to the native functions of the device like contacts or location. One of the biggest advantages of this solution is, that the app only has to be developed once. There is no need to develop a separate app for Android and iOS.

If your project fits to this solution we'll find out in a consulting.

Framework development

Framework development

If there is not any ready to use software for your project, I will create the best solution together with you. Therefore I use helpers (frameworks) to reduce the development time as far as possible. The solutions, which can be created in this way, can be as small as a contact form and go up in size until an own CMS.

Would you like to talk about your next project?

Webdesign & conversion

Webdesign & conversion

Unfortunately I am not a web designer. Together with you we will find the best designer, may be from my network or over an online platform. Of course you can deliver me a design from your own designer if you have one.

I will convert the design to HTML5 and CSS3 and can also integrate into another solution if needed.

Content Management Systems (CMS)

Content Management Systems (CMS)

A CMS is useful, when you want to manage the website and its content yourself. There are a lot of solutions available. Dependent on the project this may be a custom-made CMS, a framework based CMS like Craft or an adapted software like Wordpress, Drupal, Pimcore or TYPO3.

>Consulting & conception

Consulting & conception

If you are having already a developer or even a team, maybe I can support you as a consultant or help with the concept.

Are you maybe starting your first mobile project?

Apps with Flutter

Apps with Flutter

This hybrid solution is still pretty new. It has the big advantage, that you only have to develop once for the different mobile operating systems. In opposite to the solution with Ionic, the app runs fully native and not just as a website.

As a freelancer I want to focus on software development. If you would like to get support in the area of team lead, Scrum or Kanban, please contact me.

To the interview (in German)

Pro Bono

Pro bono publico is a Latin phrase for professional work undertaken voluntarily and without payment. Unlike traditional volunteerism, it is service that uses the specific skills of professionals to provide services to those who are unable to afford them.

What does that mean?

With that being said, I'll develop certain projects to very beneficial conditions or maybe even for free. Are you a Non-Profit organisation, e.g. a public institution, a clinic or a club, or maybe just a single person, who want to do something charitable? Please contact me and will find out, how I can support you with my skills and services.
