About me

My name is Igor Lourenço and I'm 23 years old. I really like technology and innovation. I started studying about it when I was 13 years old and until today I haven't stopped. I don't see myself doing anything else with my life besides that. At 13, I did a technical high school in the area of Computer Networks and, as soon as I finished, at 16, I started an IT college. I'm studying by myself for two years now and, in addition to technology, I'm studying Spanish and English. In my free time, I like to play sports and CS:GO, read and watch movies and tv shows. My favorite hero is Iron Man and my favorite tv show character is Frank Castle from The Punisher. Now, I'm building Wage3 Payments, my side project.

My skills

In my years working with technology, I learned a lot of things, met a lot of people and acquired a lot of knowledge. I've worked with PHP, studied Python and even tried to learn R language, but for my current professional goals, I leave only the most relevant skills, which are:

Previous Experiences

The skills pointed above were acquired, in addition to time, with practice and study. On my Github, you can see my code trajectory and, below, I leave my latest experiences, the most relevant to my current focus, which is working with scalability and Layer 2 of Ethereum. In addition to those described below, I was an intern for 2 years at a public agency called the Court of Justice of Tocantins and a front-end developer for 2 years at a company called CRP Tecnologia.

Community Collaborations

As part of the web community and, more recently, web 3 in Brazil, I have been trying to be very participative and find mentors and mentees to share knowledge in order to everyone's growth. With that in mind, I've already written some articles about front-end development and, when I started studying about Blockchain, I started sharing a lot of things on my Twitter about the subject. In addition, I seek to participate in DAOs, such as Developer DAO and ENS, and see how decisions are made. Lately, I started writing articles about my current focus, which is Scalability. Here are some examples:
