Named Developer of the Year and short-listed for Outstanding Contribution of the Year in the 2015 net awards, and awarded an O’Reilly Web Platform award for “exceptional leadership, creativity, and collaboration in the development of JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and the supporting Web ecosystem.” Microsoft also named me an Open Web Evangelist in 2015.

I co-authored a book on Responsive Web Design.

Smashing Book 5: Real-Life Responsive Web Design is a book that covers time-saving, practical techniques for crafting fast, maintainable and scalable responsive websites. I wrote an 80-pages long chapter about using SVG images in a Responsive Web Design workflow, including everything you need to know to get you up and running using SVG.

“Sara doesn’t come without a price tag. But it's worth it.Up to date I have not worked with a freelancer so open-minded, innovative and not afraid to challenge client’s work as Sara. And best of all, it’s not just “talk”… but also “walk”.”
