About Alberto Varela

Alberto Varela

I am a 33 years old Full Stack Developer based in Bilbao. I am passionate about everything related to web development and I’m currently working as Development Manager at Travioor. The easiest way to get in touch is via email: alberto@berriart.com.

Web development

My preferred back-end languages are PHP and Javascript (Node.js). I’m also front-end developer, I’ve worked with AngularJS, jQuery and a lot of Vanilla JS. I have used MySQL and MongoDB as data storage. I’m open for alternatives when is necessary.

Continous Integration

I have implemented continous integration and continous deployment pipelines in multiple projects, including source control, software and infrastructure automatic provisioning, unit testing, deployment, functional testing, monitoring and notifications.

Analysis & Planning

I have experience heading medium and small projects: choosing technology, planning, estimating duration, spreading the workload between coworkers… and using Agile methodologies.

DevOps

I believe that collaboration between development and operations is possible and I like contributing making it real. I have experience managing classic Linux server and the new cloud technologies.

SEO and Web Analytics

I like SEO, not all kinds, but the in-page SEO. I allways try to optimize the sites for search engines when coding: web performance, the HTML structure, semantics, microdata, linkbuilding… I’ve also configured analytics in sites to measure ROI.

Others

I am a self-taught, but I love working with people who know and can teach me. I think my two best qualities are that I like to teach what I know and that I know I have still a lot to learn.
