Before .NET I was involved in Business Intelligence projects, so I have excellent skills modeling, programming and querying relational databases (Oracle, SQL Server and Postgres). Other technologies I have worked with are Node.js, Go, MongoDB and Java. I am interested in projects that demand commitment, high quality and performance.
