Mauro’s first contact with a computer was at the age of 8 when his father brought home a brand new Commodore 64. It was love at first sight. His first steps into programming were made using the Logo language, then Basic, a little later Pascal at a specialised high school where he started his teaching career right after graduating as a Computer Technician. While going through his Computer Science studies at University of Buenos Aires he held his part time job as Programming teacher and, after that, he got to work fulltime in more classic roles such as Software Developer, Tech Lead and Architect for private companies of different sizes and industries. By the year 2015 he started working as an independent PHP Consultant, Trainer and Technical Writer, contributing to several popular online publications.
