I have experience in all sort of projects, of different sizes and of wide spectrum of domains: medical, multimedia, air traveling and e-commerce. I love well crafted code and working in complex domains. My style of development revolves around the ideas of Domain Driven Design. This means that when I develop software, I try to understand and breathe the business, in order to effectively model it into code. I mostly do web development, specially REST apis; but I’m decent enough in React (with hooks) and modern frontend development.
