Francisco has more than a few years of experience working on projects ranging from single static pages (usually marketing pages) to highly complex apps with many transactions per seconds (Google projects, the Scottish police, and a company that offers freelance services). He's slightly obsessed with new technologies and is an early adopter of most of the latest approaches to modern front-end web development.
