My name is André and I am a full stack developer with a previous career in business, that allows me to translate business needs to the technology world
I am a developer and a teacher from Lisbon 🇵🇹. I have an atypical path. I studied marketing and advertising and have worked in event management, business development and sales, building management, and also, at one point, at a bar. So yeah, not your usual developer story.
Truth is I have always been more fascinated by technology and computers than anything else. From an early age I fell in love with computers and always wanted to, eventually, learn coding. Then in my business career I always felt frustrated because I could not build the ideas and projects I had in my mind.
A few years later I have worked hard and turned myself into a developer, a freelancer, a tinkerer that keeps building new exciting ideas (at least for me). I have built projects for clients in the US, UK and Germany, in industries like e-commerce, finance and consulting.
On top of all this, I am a teacher for Ironhack in its remote bootcamp where I try to help students break into the industry that has always fascinated me. I try to pass not only the skills but also the excitement for this life and promising career path
