At the age of 18, I started getting interested and self-educating myself in software development and in particular in Web Development until I decided to start a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and the Master later. I have always thrived in an international environment, that's why after my studies, I made the big leap and started a fresh life here in Sydney. During these years, I had the opportunity to work with multiple Digital and Software Companies as a developer and consultant on short engagements and full-time positions where I have faced different challenges with distinct solutions and outcomes. This enabled me to stay up to date with significant changes that have been introduced in the Software and IT industry by continuous integration / continuous delivery approach and DevOps practices, together with cloud computing and IaaS platforms such as AWS and more recently with Docker and Kubernetes. It’s an honor to be part of the Algorand Foundation and I cannot wait to share my skills and start learning and working with some of the best people in helping this brilliant technology shaping the future of our planet for the better.
