Software Developer / Consultant
On March 2017 I started my journey of becoming a full time independent software developer! Since this time I've worked with local businesses, startups and individuals all around the world!
I'm aiming to further develop my client base by fundamentally understanding my client's needs and delivering optimal solutions using innovative technologies and strategies. Hey, that actually sounds pretty good haha! But it's true, that is what I'm aiming for! These days I'm mostly doing consulting, which is kind of strange as I've always felt like I'm really just a geeky developer.
I'm passionate in what I do - main experience has been with PHP which I've worked with predominantly in my permanent roles, though I've also had some experience with other programming languages like Python. Since about a year ago I've been investigating functional programming via Haskell which I've since greatly admired, and have used to develop a few side projects (you'll be able to see them on my Github profile). I've worked with various database systems including MySQL, PostgreSQL (which has amazing JSON integration) and Cassandra.
I'm also a Linux fanatic, using Arch Linux as my distro of choice (it also hosts this website believe it or not!). I've also have experience using the two main cloud infrastructure providers - Amazon AWS and Google Cloud Platform. Microservices, Docker and Kubernetes is something I have experience with as well - definitely the infrastructure of the future!
Along the side I've also had minor exposure to things like Google Analytics, API intergrations with various services (Google, Youtube, Facebook, Amazon and more).
