I live in Buenos Aires in Argentina, my home country.
I work at a company called ByteDefult as a Full Stack Developer. I'm lucky to work with several other terrific, skilled colleagues.
ByteDefult is a startup, and we're creating a super secret video-based product yet to be released. We look forward to its release, and I think you will, too!
I'm writing a module for Angular to use drag, drop and upload, coming soon to npm. I'm also mentoring a large team of Spanish-speaking NativeScript Ambassadors, younger developers who are learning NativeScript this summer. In addition, I've written a book on Angular (Entendiendo Angular) and am considering writing a book on NativeScript. Finally, I'm working on a project called 30 days with RxJS in Spanish.
NativeScript! I love its simplicity and its use of Angular. When I read the code behind NativeScript, I found it was amazing. I'm excited to write a book about NativeScript, and I've also use Kendo UI many times for web development.
When you are in a professional environment with amazing, interesting and intelligent colleagues, the architecture and ideology of a product becomes something incredible. You are challenged to always get better and push technologies to create even more interesting products. That's a good kind of challenge—a tougher challenge is to write your own Open Source project and maintain it, but you need to do this to keep moving forward and surmount difficulties.
