Fullstack Developer

Hi! I'm Alvaro Montoro

I am a Software Engineer based in Austin, TX, currently working as a UI Manager at Visa.

I have over 15 years of experience in software development, and a passion for Front-End. I enjoy exploring web technologies and creating sites and web apps.

My work involves a lot of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (with React), but I also have plenty experience with back-end development and databases.

I blog about technology, act as a moderator in Stack Overflow en Español, and often engage with the Tech Twitter community.
