Hey! I'm Nazareno, a 24 years old web developer from Buenos Aires, Argentina living in Amsterdam. I started programming in my spare time when I was 12 years old in PHP+MySQL+JS and I didn’t stop learning since then.

I worked for all kind of companies, from small startups based on San Francisco to Despegar.com (one of the five biggest travel agencies in the world) , on different positions, from Frontend Developer to Technical Leader of a team. Frequently I give talks and seminars about PHP, Web Security, MVC Frameworks and other topics in events and institutes. (PHPDay, EducacionIT, BarCamp, etc.)


Technical Skills

PHP & Development


I can make safe, scalable and highly optimized applications and services. I work principally with Object Oriented Programming with PHP5, using SQL databases (MySQL, MsSQL Server) and NoSQL (MongoDB, Redis), depending on the case.

Some topics that I love are: WebServices, MVC (Laravel, CodeIgniter and most of the standard MVC Frameworks), Amazon AWS, MemCached, Gearman, Composer, Encryption, machine learning.

I teached advanced PHP and MySQL to coworkers and colleagues and was in charge of a basic PHP course on EducacionIT, one of the biggest IT learning schools in Buenos Aires.
