I am David Pádua


Front-end & Creative 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.

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 work.

I love Monday mornings.
