Career Profile

I’m a passionate Full-Stack Developer with 12 years of experience in designing and developing applications and solutions for a wide range of clients. I’m experienced with object-oriented PHP, JavaScript (client and server), SQL, HTML and CSS. I always strive to learn new things and go outisde my comfort zone. I enjoy writing clean and well tested code that adheres to SOLID principles, but I also like designing and coding neat and carefully crafted user interfaces.

I am an early Laravel adopter and believer, as I started working with it when version 3 was around. Nevertheless in my daily job I get to work with a wide range of technologies and I’m not afraid to explore uncharted territories.

I work well very well in small teams because I like to establish meaningful connections to collaborate effectively with the people I interact on a daily basis.

Skills & Proficiency

PHP & Laravel
I’ve been using Laravel for almost 8 years now and it’s definitely my favorite PHP framework (and I tried a lot of them). What I like the most is how clean and well structured it is and how it makes you very productive in a small amount of time. Laravel also introduced me to several important concepts of software development, such as IoC and TDD. I also love the huge ecosystem that revolves around Laravel, specifically LiveWire. I try to give back to the community whenever I can.
It’s the first language I’ve ever learned and I sill love it, despite some of its weirdness and the crazyness of its ecosystem. I’m proficient with the latest ECMAScript additions to the language and I also enjoy using it with TypeScript.
SQL is a fundamental skill of any BE developer. ORMs are nice, but quite often it’s necessary to go deeper and properly understand the persistence layer. The database I’m most proficient is MySQL, but I don’t dislike working with PostgreSQL or even SQLite.
Writing CSS has always been challenging for me because I’ve never been able to find an approach that allowed me to maximize productivity while ensuring maintainability. Luckily for me, things have changed in the last years and now I enjoy writing it thank to scoped CSS features, CSS modules and especially Atomic CSS.
I’ve started learning Elixir a few years ago. I’ve always been fascinated by how it works and how powerful it is.
