Soren Frederiksen

Freelance Web Developer

Melbourne

Soren traces his start in tech to a liver bug and a boarding house in Indonesia. In

Jakarta for a journalism internship, it was between bouts of stomach trouble that

he decided he’d really rather deal with that other kind of bugs.

After working at Sky News and Fairfax Media back home, Soren decided to

commit to tech and began a Masters in Information Technology at Monash

University. Not content with just the one course, between semesters he enrolled

in Front End Web Development at General Assembly and got to grips with the

internet.

Soren capped the course off with a bright and chirpy quiz game. A keen design

eye, he was the only student who thought to pair pink, black and the Jackie Chan

classic First Strike. On the back of his time at GA, Soren found a mentor in the

instructor and a job at web development firm RabbitBird. While there, he put his

front-end skills to work, learned to code PHP and built client sites with the help

of Google’s Golang.

At study and in his spare time, Soren codes Java, builds Android applications,

reads about data mining and is keen to combine his passions for news and

technology.
