I am Miguel Rodríguez, a freelance developer from Caracas - Venezuela with Computer Science background. I am a persistent and goal-oriented person who tries to make the best use of the resources. I am positive, proactive and motivated enough to set a goal with the intention to fulfill it.
Just after college I used to do a lot of programmming while working as a technician. By that time I only was working in a prototype of my website in PHP and some other learning stuff in C/C++. These C/C++ things might include compiling directly with GCC and and trying building a website with CGI. I was specially focused on programming in order to improve my skills for my first programming job in life which it was two years later. Then I had to retake everything what I learned in my Thesis becuase I was involved in a CRP project in PHP called VTiger. I built a lot of things but it honestly gave me a lot of headaches due to the bugs. A year later I got involved in the helpdesk system of G-SYS. I was working with one of my friends. I had to work with an ERP project built from scratch in PHP4 for insurance brokers. unfortunately It had even more bugs than VTiger. Later in that year I decided to work as an independent contractor. I had to do a lot of diverse things. I got involved with Drupal as well as many other more technologies as SASS, bootstrap and modernizr. I had the oportunity to perform serveradmin task. I have even been involved with Sabre web services. Now I am working a lot with Ruby and Rails and I am willing to explore many other more technologies.
Describing me in few words, I am honest, thoughtful and persistent. I try to be kind whenever I can, I always say the truth, even in situations that could affect me, I take promises very seriously, so, I don't promise that easy, it would be unfair to say that I am a perfect person, like any human I make mistakes, and, when it happens, I recognize them, I apologize and I try to learn from them, I usually don't react violently and I have no criminal record.
