Me and My Website
My name is André Torgal and this is my website, a place where I blog some thoughts and run a few experiments.
Here, you can learn more about me, my work as software engineer, and other stuff I have been up to.
Just to be clear: this is my space - I own the content, the opinions are my own, and it does not represent the company I work for at the moment.
On this website
You can find:
A seasoned web developer and agile practitioner with a diverse background in engineering and management. I have been coding, leading, mentoring and facilitating for 20 years. Read more.
A curious and passionate person. My story includes computers, bicycles and skateboards. Guitars, drums, theater and photography. Economics, management, more computers. Software, methodologies, frameworks. Read more.
Bare with me while I collect my old stuff. Meanwhile, check out the latest tracks I recorded. Read more.
One is a lie
- I once worked in an obscure, surreal, movie production, so my name is on Imdb.
- I am afraid of heights, but I once bungee jumped from 68 meters high.
- Cristiano Ronaldo used to chill at my neighbor's house, but I never really talked to him.
- I got a tattoo of a French character done by an American dude in the Czech Republic.
See you around

Spoiler: it's a static site, entirely generated from Markdown files here's the source code for the page you are currently reading. I'm using React Static as a generator, and on top of that, my models, collectors, transformers, and views, entirely written in Typescript and Scss.
