About Alberto Varela

image from About Alberto Varela

I am 35 years old and I am Full Stack Developer based in Bilbao with more than 10 years of experience. I am passionate about everything related to web development and I’m currently working as Software Developer at Plain Concepts. The easiest way to get in touch is via email: alberto@berriart.com.

Web development

I have mainly been working with PHP, Javascript (Node.js) and C# as back-end languages. I’m also front-end developer, I’ve worked with Angular, Vue and a lot of Vanilla JS. I have used SQLServer, MySQL and MongoDB as data storage. I’m open for alternatives when it is necessary.

Continuous Integration

I have implemented continuous integration and continuous 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 worked in Agile teams and I have experience heading the dev department in an small start-up also. I love to learn about processes to maximize the business value delivery and I like to think that I have helped improving the workflow of the companies I worked for.

DevOps

I believe that collaboration between development and operations is possible and I like contributing making it real. I have experience managing Linux servers and with cloud technologies (AWS and Azure). Infrastructure as code has been a must in the last projects I worked for and I like to spread the idea.

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 advanced analytics to measure ROI in multiple websites.

Meetups & Conferences

I like to attend meetups and conferences, especially local ones. I have been also giving some workshops and talks at events like Software Crafters Barcelona or Bilbao Tech Week, and I usally try to partipate on open spaces.

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.
