Proficient in configuring microservices architecture and developing web applications. Eager to learn and work with new technologies and frameworks.
I had the privilege of working with Andre during a mid-term project and also for some pair programming projects during the Lighthouse Labs web developement bootcamp. Andre was an outstanding worker with a keen eye for detail and an impressive level of technical depth when it came to problem solving. He is a wonderful team worker with a first class attitude to work and supporting his peers alike. Any employer would be gaining a huge asset adding Andre to their team.See more
My first experience with Andre's perseverance came not long after we started our boot camp. It was when we had to build our first application called "Tiny App". At that time, Andre's experience with frameworks like Express, Node and HTML5 was limited, but he worked extra hours to learn/understand how these languages/frameworks were implemented. Andre even went beyond the scope of the school work and offered to help myself and his fellow classmates to understand the concepts that were being taught.
It was not just his technical skills that impress me, however. Andre was a joy to work with because of his amazingly positive attitude, eagerness to solve any problems that came up and his sheer enthusiasm to help his fellow cohorts/teammates.
Not only has he been extremely patient/supportive and a team player, but he's also become a close personal friend. Andre's skills and leadership qualities would make him an invaluable addition to your company and development team. His can-do attitude and team-building skills were also necessary and valued not just by myself, but by his peers, who often relied on him to get their assignments done.
What can I say about Andre? Hard-working, intelligent, stellar attention to detail (so much so that we nicknamed him "Chief Picky Officer"), and a great person to work with. We worked together for two weeks including weekends, and I would gladly do it again!
We had long work days, often stretching beyond 12hrs in a day, and Andre was always there, ready to go the next morning before we even had had a chance to grab our morning coffee. All I am trying to say is, if you are ever to have a concern about someone's work ethic, that person should not be Andre.
He was an invaluable part of our team, coming up with clever ideas, helping out when we needed it, and going above and beyond to make sure our project was a success. If I were ever able to choose my own development team, Andre would be a part of it.
