Víctor Adrián de la Cruz Serrano

Mexico City was home for about 20 years.

Have ample experience as a frontend developer on:

  • Creating apps from scratch
  • Laying out the guidelines for reusable and maintainable code
  • Implementing design systems
  • Fleshing out intuitive and performant UIs from provided designs
  • Help existing apps get up to speed with modern standards

Have worked on implementing backend solutions.

Earned a degree in Computer Systems Engineering from the Superior School of Computer Sciences (ESCOM) of the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN).

Was awarded the Lázaro Cárdenas Prize in the Field of Engineering and Physical-Mathematical Sciences in 2005.

Worked with a variety of stacks and languages before settling down on Elixir to do fullstack development with Phoenix and LiveView (for web apps, backends, or APIs).

There is also TypeScript/JavaScript with Vue 3 + Tailwind CSS (for SPAs, if you’d like that).

Continually learn new things. Right now looking into domotics and some of the new AI stuff.

Have worked as an employee, contractor, consultant, and mentor.
Try to write quality code using best practices. :monocle_face:

Hobbies range widely from Zen Buddhism to building PCs, writing blog posts, and rewriting this blog in a new tech every now and then.
