Hi there πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

My name is Vicente Plata. Thank you for stopping by.

xnt's GitHub stats


I enjoy creating tools, systems and processes to improve people's lives. Customers, developers, stakeholders, etc. As well as measuring said impact. I don't like pigeonholing myself with regards to languages, technologies, and the like. In the past, I've worked extensively with:

  • πŸ™…β€β™‚οΈ Java (for 10-ish years, and rather wouldn't again)
  • 🀷 C#
  • πŸ’ͺ PowerShell
  • 🚝 Ruby (Rails)
  • 🐘 SQL (Postgres)
  • ❀️ JavaScript & TypeScript (React, React Native, Next)
  • and others; check out my resume

But what really moves me is helping teams, people, and organizations grow and improve with a data-and-transparency-driven approach.

What I do

Most of my work time is dedicated to:

  • having fun at Utopia Labs ⛩️, building tools that help organizations accelerate crypto payments
  • helping startups scale and strengthen their footprint in the Mexican and Canadian engineering communities
  • time-permitting, I also collaborate on independent projects at a high-level, or help with consulting services on remote engineering and culture (which I did since way before it was COVID cool πŸ˜„) .


I'm convinced that software and technology's impact continues to be a net possitive in the world. But we can always do more, and do better.

I'd be more than happy to chat about ways in which you think we could make the world a better place with them: either just to chat, as an advisor, or in a pro-bono kind of thing (dear recruiters: I'm not interested in another full-time-ish opportunity, unless it's an extremely good deal for both of us and in all dimensions, and even then moving to the States would be a hard stop: no).

Thank you, and have a nice day ✨!
