About Me

How can I describe myself? That's a hard one, well I know I am a creative person, I like what I do, I can't always put in words what is in my mind, but that's just the way I am.
As a developer I am very passionate about my work and cannot see myself doing something else. In my free time, when I'm not arguing about best practices in web development, I like to read a lot of books, watch good movies, travel a lot, have new experiences, meet new and interesting people.
As for my career, well who knows, maybe I'll be the founder of the world's greatest product/service or maybe not, but that's a story for another time. For now, I can say for certain that I will try!

    Frontend Developer

    Front-end Developer in a 8 people team that is responsible for building products that will help others to learn in a quick and modern way. I work with JS frameworks like AngularJS mostly and jQuery, CoffeeScript, HTML, CSS frameworks(Bootstrap, unsemantic, 960), LESS, SASS, Photoshop, Jasmine and Karma Working here helped me learned how to communicate better with the team in an efficient way, to identify patterns in information or data and how to adopt a constructive approach to provide a win-win situation. Also now I'm more focused on results even when the strategy or future cannot be certain and on removing barriers and short term issues to achieve delivery. I have worked on legacy projects, where I have developed new features and refactored the existing code. On new projects, per example, one of them was a single page application for an online school. This project was fully responsive with a user friendly and modern design. For this particular project we used CoffeeScript compiled into JavaScript, AngularJS, Bootstrap, custom CSS written SASS, and for TDD we used Jasmine and Karma.
