Software Analyst & Developer

Argentina - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 7

Over the last 15 years I've been working for the same company, developing commercial applications for in-house using or for sale. The last three years I've been focusing on multimedia development, mainly in broadcast, transcoding and streaming. I've analyzed, designed and developed applications in old VB6 and for the past seven years I've been working in JEE development and Node.js. My core competency lies in understanding client needs and being able to develop an application that satisfies his needs, no matter the tools I've to use. To accomplish this, I usually do a lot of research, including setting up test environments to test new frameworks. I feel comfortable researching, learning and using top edge technologies.
