Hello everyone! My name is George and I’m a Full Stack Dev from Brazil.
I have a B.Sc. in Geography, from
Universidade Federal de Uberlândia
here in Brazil.
I fell in love with programming and software development around 10 years ago
(it feels more) when I discovered that I could automate map publishing in
From there, I learned
make up my tool belt.
I’ve worked with many companies and departments here in Brazil, in areas
mineral exploration, going through
transit and transportation.
I was a employee for a good long time, then we (me, Gustavo and Paulo) reactivated our company, SIGMA Geosistemas, providing consulting services for GIS development and GIS work, in Uberlândia - Minas Gerais. In there I was in charge of the whole development and research part.
That means that I did a lot of work developing software for our customers,
managing our team and adopting the best industry practices, such as
CI, etc. We even created our very own SaaS, Geoadmin, which is a platform
Today I’m open for business. That means that I’m not currently formally employed. While I had a long relation with SIGMA, I’m no longer involved in the company day to day business, acting as a independent contractor.
My focus is on GIS software development (Python, Django and Django Rest Framework), with a Single Page Application front-end (such as Vue2 and React).
I’m an open source advocate and use open-source software on a daily basis. I have a few packages (listed just a few, feel free to check others in Github or Gitlab) published on PYPI, such as:
- django-chaos (project management);
- django-common-models (boilerplate models);
- django-file-context (attach files to anything);
- django-workflow-fsm (runtime finite state machines);
- django-tilestache (create layers in django and have them shown in TileStache);
My skills are:
- Django/Django REST Framework
- Mapbox GL JS
What is this?
Well, this is a blog/notepad for me and my crazy ideas.
