  • João Martins
    João Martins UI/UX Developer

    Born and raised in the 90’s, it didn’t take much for me to get on the computer wagon, my first was an intel 80486. Since then I’ve been sitting, looking at the screen. Recently I’ve discovered the world of front-end development and I think I have an addiction. In the future I would like to get paid to talk about my passion/addiction, and get into OSS projects. When I’m not in front of a computer I take my bike for a spin.
