I’m passionate about collaboration and my desire to understand more about both, people and technology, gave me the ability to have a unique perspective of technical definitions and business demands, so I can be a reliable bridge to gap tech and non-tech teams. I have joy working on different projects and learning every day, this is one of the main reasons I’m deeply interested (and involved) with Free and Open Source software. My goal is to always improve the dynamics of what I’m working on, striving to have a good and understandable code-base, producing clear documentation
(for developers and users), creating a healthy environment with amazing test coverage (which are easy to implement and extend), and contributing to build a solid infrastructure to support the team, with the ultimate goal of enrich the relationship between people, either team mates, clients or stakeholders.

Full stack development working with PHP and WordPress. Developing custom themes, components and plugins, improving WordPress customized themes, plus managing, securing, and maintaining multiple blogs, microsites, and single-page apps. Working closely with the analytics and SEO team to have the tools and ways to make their jobs easier.
In the beginning, my main goal was to work through an improvements backlog list and get the blogs more secure, faster and with better performance overall.
Some tasks were simple but others, like performance and reliability, were a bit more complicated. We solved most of the problems migrating from a homemade infrastructure to a managed host, with development infrastructure (git repositories, automatic hooks, multidev workflow and dev, test and production environments) where I could focus on the blogs instead of the maintenance of the server infrastructure and security. The migrations were finished in January, 2020, with awesome performance changes after that. For example, in May, 2019, we had our lowest Lighthouse score ever for mobile (Corporate Blog): 5/100. Now we have 91/100 Lighthouse score and we’re not finished yet.
In a joint effort, we are working on a lighter base theme, focusing in the mobile-first approach, being ADA complaint and i18n ready, to be applied to all blogs in the next few months.
