Chris believes in a holistic approach to building front-end solutions.

Chris Danek is a Senior Front-End Developer for Alliance Systems. He built his first website back in high school, using all the HTML tables and animated gifs he could put his hands on. He started his professional career in 2004 and soon after that discovered the book "Designing with Web Standards" by Jeffrey Zeldman. It made him fell in love with semantic HTML and CSS styling.

Over the years, Chris would become a full-stack developer with experience in PHP and Ruby on Rails. His primary interests would still revolve around the performance and accessibility of all his projects. Constantly evolving browser engines, responsive design, the mobile revolution, the rise of JavaScript as a first-class programming langue - all of these factored into Chris switching back to being primarily a front-end developer. He firmly believes that every successful project starts with the underlying foundation of great design and UX, but never at the cost of performance, inclusivity, or accessibility to the broadest possible audience.

Outside of work, Chris is married with two children and lives near Poznan, Poland. He likes playing all kinds of computer, board, and tabletop roleplaying games.
