About Me

Having finished my degree in Informatics Engineering in 2009, I started working in the field in that same year. Until today I have had some different experiences, but I mostly worked with C# and Microsoft technologies, having shifted to Python in the most recent times. I passed through desktop applications development, to backend server development, mobile development and I'm currently a web developer (some backend and some frontend so, fullstack). In these different companies I worked in smaller teams, bigger teams, alone and I have even been technical leader of a very small team. I consider myself someone who is always eager to learn, fast to adapt, and happy to share my experiences when needed.
