About me

I am a software developer and graduate of the Turing School of Software and Design. I pick up new concepts quickly and constantly seek new opportunities to learn and grow. I have always been into technology and videogames, my passion for both led me to software development and it's something I enjoy with my passion for it growing every passing day. As a developer, I have experience building apps in Ruby on Rails with PostgreSQL using TDD processes with Rspec, version control using git and GitHub, with continuous integration to Heroku using TravisCI.

I now have a website! www.robertobasulto.com

My areas of focus:
My area of focus was the backend, I helped design the database and spearheaded the implementation of SQLAlchemy.Personally I was also the liaison between the backend and the frontend building the API contracts and communicating what each side needs.

This was a personal passion project. I wanted to dip my toes into the frontend and learn some of its technologies and building a personal website seemed like a good way to learn.
