Long bio

Everything started when I was 14 years old and wanted to create a website but didn't know how.In that journey, I found a platform called [Blogger]( and I quickly noticed that this blogging service has a sort of template code configuration. I realise that the code has some links to the images used in the theme of the blog, so I started replacing such links with other link images. Eventually, I was modifying the CSS without knowing that it was CSS.During the next 2 years, I also learned by myself some Visual Basic, Flash, and some C++ from school.I joined Systems Engineering at the university mostly following my friends because at that time I thought I could learn coding just on the internet, and maybe I should try another career more design related since it was something that I was exploring at that time as well. I learned many important things at the university but it was until I took an extra summer course that I really get into the web. In that program, I learned PHP, MySQL, jQuery, and some CSS.My first few jobs were coding mostly in JAVA, but little by little my heart fall in love with JavaScript, and after joining a JS Conf and discovering Node.js I decided to focus on JavaScript to create products.It will continue...

Desktop Apps

Essential desktop apps for my work and leisure. Some of them I have paid them twice in order to use them at work.

Chrome Extensions

Streaming Setup

A 49 inches Dell monitor with two mechanical keyboards on a Magnus Desk and a Secret lab chair, Cyberpunk edition. You can see also a few gadgets on the desk as a Rode Mic, and Stream Deck, MuteMe button, and Logitech webcam. The room walls are yellow.

Even though I have a streaming setup that I can use with any of my laptops (everything is connected thought a Thunderbolt cable) I don't really needed it to code so some times I move to my couch, office, mall or cafe.

These are some of the apps and services that I pay because they make my life easier and fun. Remember that paying for software and services is an excellent way to support other developers.

I also pay for a couple of domains, servers, email accounts, meetups, apps, and content creator subscriptions.

Check my project to manage your own subscriptions finances, Sublr.

Other Gear

More stuff that is convenient to have for different purposes.
