Hi, I’m Juanda and I’m a programmer born and raised in Colombia.
I’ve been programming since I was 12 and all I had was a x286 PC with 128MB of HDD and 16MB of RAM. I’ve also been involved in the world of startups and I even sold one in late 2013.
During my time as co-founder at WeHostels, I created and scaled a RESTful JSON API that is currently used by many thousands of users every day to book accommodation around the world.
I love Ruby on Rails and founded the Bogotá Ruby Meetup before leaving to New York City for 6 months. It was a great opportunity to meet talented people in my beloved Colombia.
As any other serious programmer, I’m motivated by solving hard problems and I find particularly interesting the scalability and architectural problems; however above all, what I value the most is to work on things that solve real problems for real people.
If you want to get in touch, drop me an email to hello[at]juanda.me.
I live in Medellín, Colombia and I’m currently available for hire as a remote worker.
