Jack of all trades,
master of some, it's what I would
describe of myself, because of the tech stacks that I enjoy working
I like to create User eXperiences(UX) & User Interfaces(UI) because I like the idea of thoughtful&practical design and execution because it makes the use of something more enjoyable, which is a key factor nowadays if you want to offer convenience to the final user/client.
On the other side I like also to deal with the back-end as it enables the service/product in the first place and provides the final usefulness(and revenue) of any business.

I'm developing new GUI's(using the Infragistics framework) and an ETL system, at the Bank Group Iccrea, for streamlining the acquisition and use of business files generated by another service/software.
So far so good 😊

October 2017 - March 2018 (6 months)
I did new development on an already existing web SPA(Single Page Application), from the Back-End(C# / WebForms) to the Front-End(HTML / CSS / ECMAScript(JS) / JQuery) with huge reworkings/rewritings from the old code base.
I'm pretty proud of what I accomplished with such a legacy project(WebForms & XHTML where a big show-stoppers in terms of applying modern development practices but I worked around and accomplished a lot).
Meanwhile the ETL(Extract, Transform, Load) part, I just learned "Informatica Developer" and build many data checking procedures on assurance products, and a little bit of bash scripting.
December 2016 - July 2017 (6 months)
It was a good introduction on working in a company, and even after finishing it, I still in contact with the developers at that company :)
July 2016 - August 2016 (2 months)
I did design and develop from scratch, through HTML5 + CSS3 + PHP and image editing softwares, a presentation/preview site of an apartment rent/sell business, adapted both for desktop and mobile devices, with multilanguage.
I learned a lot of web tecnologies in the process of developing it and the client happy :)

2013 - 2016 (3 years)
It was a part-time/freelance thing, I did Support / Assistance / Helpdesk (software and hardware) and repair (hardware) of desktops/laptops and smartphones(Android, iPhone, Windows Phone).
I've been on computers from my teenager years, started as a gamer, ended up doing a bit of anything on the computer, even breaking and repairing it, all for sake of curiosity I guess 🤔.
Went to a high school that I regretted later on(construction
technician) and after the struggle I went to the university of
Information Technology, twice...
At the first the engagement didn't went almost anywhere, because the courses weren't well structured, cohesive and meaningful(IMO).
And after 1 year I went to the second best university nearby home, and I remained at it up to 2019, then dropped because it's not meaningful for me, right now, to continue it.
At the university I figured out that, as an academic student, I'm really slow, like I can't even study well multiple subjects at the same time, so my approach is of 1 subject at a time(which sucks/doesn't suite well the uni system).
But, meanwhile pursuing the studies, I wanted to start to gain job
experience early as well, for the sake of trying and seeing the
work environment first hand.
And that's how I stick with it™, because I found myself really profficient and fast learner, which I enjoyed more than university.
On the other side I don't disdain my university time either, because without it, I wouldn't have the knowledge building blocks that will let me, later on, understand complex arguments easier, and make my life easier overall.
Nowadays I continue with my software engineer career, I'll get back to university later on.
It was kind of my first professional project for an acquaintance. He is a business owner, in the renting/selling industry of apartments, in Spain. The previous website didn't resemble anything modern(more 90's), so I offered help in this regard, with a website rewritten from scratch and adapted to mobile devices too.
I used/learned-to-use HTML5, CSS3 and a bit of PHP(for the
In this project I also learned/used those technologies for myself too.
Nowadays I do a little bit of maintenance, from time to time, which is painless because of good use of PHP modularity features.
After the renting service I wanted to restart from something less endeavoring and more within reach to completion.
collAnon is a collaboration tool for middle-big enterprices focused on promoting collaboration through temporal anonymity of the communications and a star system on the solutions/ideas that come from the topics context.
Just try it, it's live! :)
It was going to be an online renting service, similar to
but more automated and with more search criterias(and analytics
about demand and offer trends/insights).
The end is due to reaching a complexity level of the business logic no longer bearable by a single mind.
Started as a bunch of static HTML pages, evolved with NodeJS for SCSS stylesheet compilation and now fully ported to support the native environment Jekyll, for both HTML generation and styles compilation.
Now the management/update of this website has reached a really nice level of automation and modularity that I don't need to repeat myself almost at all 😄.
And the one you're seeing right now is the version 2.0(which also make use of CSSs grid), here is the previous 1.0.
It's an app that I made through an online course in which I learned the basics of the Qt framework and GUI building. It was a funny experience and I think I'll use this framework for some of my next projects.
This is a link to such program, extract it, and execute(on Windows) the QtCurvesCpp.exe inside the extracted folder.
Made in C#, it make use of another library that can generate differently themed sets of colours, which I adapted to generate some HTML forms with random color set generated from that library, output is an html.txt file, which content I copy-paste in the actual template index.html.
No further updates I made on it, it was made for the sake of experimenting on an old idea.
I'm fairly good at drawing tribal style people or abstractions since I was teen.
I always had a good steady hand in general, and made good technical drawings with it.
A glimpse at the lifes of other Developers.
Not really much of a hobby, but keeps me engaged everyday.
Because my job requires a long daily sedentary period, I feel the
need to keep up my health at a good state.
And also this physical activity is a good stress reliever.
Here's some music
