What I do

Data modeling

Data modeling is one of the most important things to work on during a project. A good data model is half the work.


Developing interesting projects based on Symfony can be challenging at times, but creating good quality code is very rewarding.

System enginering

Every project has to be hosted on a server. Being able to create a good match between the software and the hosting environment results in a smooth working project and fast response time.
