As a Developer

With a rich 15-year journey in development, my career started by crafting simple web pages using HTML, CSS, and basic JavaScript. Over time, I delved into the realms of PHP, working with platforms like WordPress, Joomla, and developing my own basic content management systems. Seven years ago, I embarked on an advanced PHP programming journey from scratch, evolving into an expert with frameworks such as Laravel, Slim, and CodeIgniter.

Proficient in database management, I handle MySQL, PostgreSQL, and some non-relational databases like Mongo.

Throughout this journey, I have collaborated with individuals across diverse regions, including Spain, Colombia, Mexico, and the United States.
