General skills, no-buzzwords
I feel confident about:
HTML5, CSS3 and ES6 from the ground up.
PHP, Ruby and Groovy without doubt.
It rhymes, you know. All good songs are enough good if they make you shake your booty!
I've been there:
Docker, AWS, Heroku, Linode and/or DigitalOcean for web services.
Required to be online, I can setup things on free SaaS and paid solutions.
Bitbucket, Gitlab, GitHub for VCS
Feel free to delete everything on your side, I'll never do the same. I do the backup!
TravisCI and Jenkins for CI/CD
Of course I'm not lazy, I just prefer for CI to finish my job.
What I've been doing?
I started working remotely, doing low-income tasks. Then I joined to a small digital-marketing to learn RoR while doing HTML+CSS+JS right before the ReactJS era.

Jan. 2018 (…)
Been here is like the renaissance of my career. Most of the stuff I've been studying on the past suddendly is here. So I decided to stay as long as I can and encourage others to also build their own careers.

Full-time / full-stack web developer ♥ Empathia
Mar. 2016 — Jan. 2017 (GDL)
I really wanted to build good things and help people, so I moved to GDL in order to start doing that. Here I wrote small abstractions just to help out on the job, or even just for fun.

My career was boosted up on GEx, motivated by a great team with strong opinions, solid commands and the best mentoring. Here I started to create tooling and my first OSS project: json-schema-faker.
Full-time web developer ♥ Out of The Box1
Feb. 2011 — May. 2013 (CDMX)
Here I started to learn very serious stuff on web-development, here I did CoffeeScript, Ruby on Rails and Git. Loved HAML, Sass and other hot stuff from these years. I was using tooling for first time!
Freelance web developer
Aug. 2009 — Jan. 2011 (CDMX)
I used to build scripts for picture-windows on mIRC, learned bit of GameMaker and did some CLI stuff with TurboPascal. After learning bits of web-development for the backend with ASP/PHP I started to search for something.
Education — really
I started at home, learning mainly PHP and HTML+CSS+JS stuff right before the jQuery era. Google and Firefox were very young at the time.
Self-teach at home
1999-2000 — Jul. 2009 (CDMX)
During this period, I dropped the school and also tried several times to grade after years. Fortunately, good people1 found me useful and hired me without requiring any of it.
