Name: Gino, you can call me Gei/G
Location: Currently The Valley, Anguilla
Other: UI/UX Design, trouble-shooting, web security, performance & optimization
I’m the techninja/co-partner at Thoughtful Digital Agency (https://www.whythoughtful.com/).
I really love meeting and learning new things from people (in tech or not) that are smarter than me. I can’t get enough of that — especially those that are learning and struggling like me.
Other than coding, I’m a Call of Duty maniac (Xbox), I use to love reading (aghhh still love it) until I started using audiobooks lol. I enjoy swimming — my island has beautiful beaches, learning from coding tuts, watching movies, ted talks, communing with nature, playing basketball and everything related to pokemon lol
I’m also passionate about growing my business and helping people meet their desired goals through design + code.
What I can offer:
I’ve never mentored anyone before outside of some of my employees at work but, I’m sure that that’s something I’d really enjoy helping out with here on codebuddies. I won’t say that I’m a great programmer but, I know some stuff!
I can definitely help build UIs and provide guidance in terms of what is feasible in development. A lot of times web/UI/UX designers get ahead of themselves and design visually appealing UIs and then find out later that what they’ve designed might not be so practical. I’m that guy that says, ‘How about this? Let’s do this instead…’ lol
I can also offer my chipper spirit and ‘can-do’ attitude…I NEVER GIVE UP…NEVER… and I’m a great team player.
What I am after:
I want to improve my OOP, algorithm skills, and be well-rounded in other areas of the development process.
I want to be one of the best, I want to be the ‘WOZ’ to my fiance’s ‘JOBS’.
Here on CodeBuddies, I want to become more involved in the community i.e, working on fun and world-changing projects. I also want to become a long-term mentee and eventually a mentor while I grow in the tech industry. It would also be great if I could find a dedicated code buddy! Someone to bounce cool ideas off of etc…
Short term (right now):
I want to hop into a hangout with someone really quickly - like right now! lol
I’m having issues with form validation (jquery/JS) for the project I’m currently working on!
Anyone is welcomed to assist!
