A little more about me
Some fun facts
- I've founded/co-founded a few companies in the past, including a SAAS platform for real estate developers, an app allowing athletes to compare performance with pro athletes, and a dev consulting agency
- My favorite programming language is Go, followed by Python, TypeScript (and Node.js), Ruby, Elixir, and then Java
- I've worked on some relatively large scale projects, including data pipelines ingesting TBs of data on a daily basis, with an AWS bill of more than $1 million per month, and an e-commerce website whose database averaged 12,000 queries per second during average load
