Yeaaaah... I have to admit how lazy I am. But hey! Haven't you heard a good engineer is a lazy person? I like to use frameworks when I see that suits the job. From Laravel, CodeIgniter and Symfony on PHP, to Django on Python and Sails on NodeJS.
Scaling things is my passion. I like to build products always with scalability in mind. Even with small projects I'm always thinking on how can I improve the architecture of the product, what technology should I use for each specific project needs and so on...
I have a strong background on relational databases. Working some years with LAMP and LEMP stacks I've made a bunch of projects with SQL and I feel really confortable with it. But...
I'm not a guy who sticks to something because I'm confortable with, in some cases I know that using a non relational database better fits some projects. That said, I also like to use and have experience in MongoDB when I see it fits better.
I love linux! I have skills on Linux Administration and Networking. My favorite distributions are CentOS and Debian.
Using cutting edge technologies is a must. I really like to explore all the benefits I can off HTML5 and CSS3 ( when I can ).
I'm always updating my tools and watching for the best ones in order to increase my productivity. Thanks to yeoman, I can easily work with bower, grunt and yo to quickly develop in a robust client-side stack.
For large projects and Single Page Web Apps I like to use Open Source frameworks that help me deal with them. My frameworks of choice are Angular.js and Backbone.js.
