Software Developer in Almada, Portugal

Member since February 27, 2014
Jorge has been developing exclusively for iOS since 2009, and has developed dozens of apps. He is now shifting to go back to developing for the back end using Microsoft technologies, including ASP.NET Core and Azure cloud services. His full-stack background developing websites decades ago allows him to easily communicate with his project teammates, regardless of the technology they work with.
