Evandro Macedo's random thoughts


Me, Skillset, Usage and The blog


I'm Evandro Macedo, a web developer born in the Northeast of Brazil. I'm a supporter of an independent World Wide Web with open knowledge and information for everyone.

I was a kid full of curiosity about computers, raised by the internet and guided by it ever since. Before graduating in Internet Systems Technology, I studied Computer Networks and Chemistry - yeah, I don't know why - but I quickly realized they didn't fit for me. After I started studying how the Web works I was fulfilled with enthusiasm and have found this was the right career to follow.

I find myself more interested in web design and programming, so naturally I tend to study more front-end development and client-side stuff in general. I believe that with all the digital inclusion we have today, if every programmer knew a little bit about design and every designer knew a little bit about programming, working without barriers, we could make a faster progress on the internet.

Most of the time I'm working with HTML5, CSS3, ES6 and all the things derived from them. New web technologies makes me excited to learn.

When I'm not coding probably I'm drinking some beer with my friends, watching a movie/series, playing guitar/bass, reading a book, playing a game or watching some video about the space-time like this one and having an existencial crisis.
