About Kilian Valkhof
Kilian does not like writing in third person, so will use “I” throughout the rest of this page.
Hello! I’m a front-end developer, user-experience designer and generalist. That means I also do back-end, visual design, marketing and devops, if need be. Because to me all those things impact a user’s experience, which is what I care about most. Trying to describe myself, I prefer “user experience developer” though I once got called “strange generalist” and yeah, that works too.
I build tools for developers, designers and other people that work on the web to make them more effective, efficient and to let them have more fun. I often write about the things I built or to explain the way I look at topics like design tools or accessibility. I am part of the Electron governance team and occasionally write for other blogs on a range of topics. (If you’re interested, contact me.)
Firstversionist is my professional home.
I am available for speaking engagements, please see my Speaking page.
