Hi, my name is Ricardo Otero.
Born in Coimbra, Portugal, I’m a software engineer based in Lisbon, Portugal.
I have a masters degree in Computer Science but I've been into web development way before that. I taught myself Perl then PHP and ended up falling in love with Ruby.
I've worked in different companies over the years and I always gravitate towards the startup scene. After co-founding and being the CTO of my own startup for 3 years I now work as a freelance web developer working remote first.
I also teach at Le Wagon, a code bootcamp, in Lisbon. It has been a wonderful experience so far. Helping people to completely change their careers teaching things I love is just perfect!
I tend to write about things that I’m currently working on or learning. Topics vary quite a bit, but just about everything is programmer flavored. Here’s a small sample of some posts that I wrote that I enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by!
