I am David Pádua

Front-end & React Developer

Experience & Skills

I started many years ago with architecture and Computer Aided Design (CAD). Then I saw an oportunity to change my career path and went for the web technologies. It was love at first sight. In the beginning I started by using Flash, actionscript and OOP (Object Oriented Programming). Then, with the anounced death of Flash, I evolved to HTML5, CSS and Javascript and learned all that I could about these languages.

Over the past 3 years I've been learning React and using it for almost all my projects. Loving it! Love hooks, love useContext and useReducer, love Redux. Everyday I discover something new, some new tool that makes my React skills improve.

I always try to be up to speed with new technologies and learn new programming languages and I am a firm believer that practice makes perfection. The need of being in the same pace as the tech world is one of the reasons I am adicted to this line of work.

Currently experimenting and trying ChatGPT and Midjourney.

I'm always eagger to find something on the internet that expands and improves the way I do my work. Sometimes you find material that meet your demand and, at the same time, inspire you to be more creative or just help you get things done in a more practical way. Do a lot of research and self taughting, always trying to discover new tools.

I have a wide range of capabilities that allow me to create stunning, dynamic interfaces that are both beautiful and highly functional. With React, I have the ability to build reusable components that can be easily integrated into any project, allowing me to work quickly and efficiently while still maintaining a high level of quality.

So if you're looking for a frontend developer who can deliver high-quality React projects that meet your exact specifications, please contact me.

This is my second passion. I use it as a way to improve my creative skills and try to make better visual choices when creating web content. I'm always trying to see things in a different perspective.

As a photographer, my portfolio is a reflection of my passion for capturing the world through a creative and unique perspective. I don't just take pictures; I tell a story, evoke emotion, and draw the viewer in. With a keen eye for detail and an innate sense of creativity, I have a gift for finding beauty in unexpected places and presenting it to the world in a way that is both captivating and thought-provoking. If you're looking for a photographer who can bring your vision to life in a way that is truly unique, look no further than my portfolio.
