<h3 class="name-subtitle">User Interface Programmer</h3>
</div>
<p>Hi, I'm a user interface programmer and reactive programming expert. My passion is to pull ideas from the future and realize them in the present.</p>
<h2 id="about-me" class="hr"><span class="hr">ABOUT ME</span></h2>
<p>I come from Brazil, but never felt like a true Brazilian. Now, I live in Finland, where it's nice and cold. The Finnish culture also matches my personality well.</p>
<p>I currently work as a Senior Web and Mobile Developer at
<a href="http://www.futurice.com" target="_blank">Futurice</a>.
</p>
<p>My <em>thing</em> is highly interactive user interfaces. I want to make great ideas become reality, with obsessive attention to detail.</p>
<p>I'm enthusiastic about reactive programming, JavaScript, functional programming, and the decentralized web.
I have authored the <a href="https://cycle.js.org">Cycle.js</a> framework, and have been a core contributor to <a href="http://reactivex.io">RxJS</a>.
</p>

<p>I started programming by making games. With my friend
<a href="http://glauberkotaki.com" target="_blank">Glauber Kotaki</a> (artist for Rogue Legacy) I've made some games such as <a href="http://www.indiedb.com/games/cold-tension" target="_blank">Cold Tension</a>, and by myself I've made
<a href="http://www.kongregate.com/games/STALTZ/rgblend" target="_blank">RGBlend</a>, a color puzzle game.

<p>I'm an acoustic guitarist and a composer. I listen to different
genres, but mostly instrumental music. Check out my

<h2 id="name" class="hr"><span class="hr">MY NAME</span></h2>
<p><em>Staltz</em> is just a nickname I use on the web since 2004. My real
name is <strong>André Medeiros</strong>, but I try to avoid it
because it's
<a href="https://www.google.com/search?q=andré+medeiros" target="_blank">disappointingly unoriginal</a>.
