In a nutshell

I'm aldo , an independent full stack developer from Bucharest. I'm interested in Laravel, Vue, Inertia, Tailwind, Graphic Design, E-commerce and Movies. I am a firm believer of user-centered design and put a great deal of effort into my work to provide seamless and satisfying experiences.

Work experience

  • Mainly worked with Laravel and Vue.js, sometimes Magento.
Independent Contractor (Aug 2019 - Present day)
  • Switched to contracting to enjoy the freedom of remote work and taking on more clients.

Projects

The list of projects is longer but not all can be mentioned due to NDA or due to the projects not being public yet.
Most of my private projects are Laravel/Vue.js and sometimes Magento.

  • Auction house with proxy and live bidding.
  • Worked with and led (for the last 5 months of the project) a team of 2-3 people.
  • Started working on the project from the very beginning to the end. I still do RFCs from time to time and consult the team working on maintaining the project.
  • Gained experience with Laravel, Laravel Nova (also building Resource Tools), Laravel Scout (also building search drivers), Vue.js, Vuex, Websockets and AWS services.
