Software

Hi! I’m Pedro, a software developer with over 10 years of experience in the field. In that time I have worked in many positions, including backend, frontend, fullstack web developer, and project leader.

Over the years I have also worked with many programming languages and technologies including C#, Java, PHP, Javascript and many others.

In recent years I have switched to focus on R and Shiny, taking part in delivering dozens of projects using those technologies.

Open Source

As an Open Source enthusiast I have also been active in open source for a few years, specially when it comes to packages and showcase applications for R and Shiny.

Given my extensive past work on web development, and its overlap with the R/Shiny world, I also author and release my own R and Shiny packages, trying to bring some of that web development experience into the Shiny world when possive.

Articles

When possive I also do my best to ocasionally write about my experiences, projects and findings, in a way that can be useful and educational to anyone interested.

You can find some of my tutorials, projects and tools showcasings in diferent media platforms including Medium, RViews, and Appsilon.
