I'm passionate about software 🧑🏻‍💻

I love finding practical solutions to complex problems through building great user experiences.

Some sort of Bio

I'm a software engineer from Venezuela 🇻🇪 currently living in 🌅 Tenerife (part of the Canary Islands 🇪🇸/🇮🇨).

I've been coding professionally 🧑🏻‍💻 since 2015, and I've been working remotely ever since 2016 💪. Since then I've worked with a lot of different technologies, coming from a Ruby on Rails background (I learned all about it in 2011) I've worked with a lot of different languages and frameworks, ventured into mobile development 📱 on Android later to get into React Native and Flutter, but I've always been a fan of the web and we all know that means Javascript, so I set myself to master it, and I'm now using frameworks like React and Vue to build apps for the web.

I worked with React (using meta-framework) along with Typescript and TailwindCSS to develop this very website. 💄

Since 2020 I've been getting more and more into accessibility and on how to remove the barriers on the web for everyone to enjoy the platform. Because of that I enrolled into the W3C: Introduction to Web Accessibility course were I learnt a lot about the people behind the a11y initiatives and I loved it. I'm now furthering my knowledge on the topic by reading articles, watching talks and trying adhering to the WCAG guidelines in my projects. I'm advocating for a11y in my workplace ever since.
