Experience with Node.js, specifically working with Express and Meteor. Familiar with several MVC frameworks, such as CakePHP and Django.

Ample experience building content sites with Wordpress using custom made themes and plugins.

Comfortable with MySQL, MongoDB and Firebase.

I favor the use of Nginx as server, because it’s fast and solid response but I’m  familiar with Apache HTTP Server.

Experience developing  complex web apps using full fledged frameworks like React JS/React Native and Vue.

Using simple libraries for small tasks, like axios, min, tiny-emitter, etc. and jQuery as main framework for basic functionality in content websites.

No problems learning new libraries and adapting to existing code bases.
