About me

@pataruco

Hello! Iโ€™m Pedro, I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ช, I started as a Science Teacher ๐Ÿงช, then jumped to a charity to improve social integration in the slums. I arrived in London in 2013 and worked as rope access technician to save money to do a Web Development course, which I finished at General Assembly in 2015 and they were crazy enough to hire me as a Teacher Assistant. I am still teaching, now as Lead Instructor, so the circle is completed.

The thing I like about programming is the feeling that you are creating-tinkering-building something useful for other people to use and I found a profound satisfation in teach non-technical people in how to code.
