ABOUT ME
Full Stack () => {Angular || React && Node && Express || Hapi && MySql || MongoDB || CouchDB} Process Engineering (Lean UX && Agile). DevOps. Mentor.
EXPERTISE
No icon Lean - 5 years experience
All of my process engineering experience has now been concentrated in Lean and how to apply this to the forming of true cross-collaboration teams in website and web application projects. See my recent presentation at DrupalCon Latin America http://awebfactory.com/node/532
No icon Agile - 15 years experience
15 years of experience in Agile, first at large companies such as Telefonica, Telecom and Siemens (where I worked for CMMI / Agile integration), and then from 2006 on in the context of website and web applications.
No icon Backend - 10 years experience
I got into server side javascript in general and Node.js in particular early on, in 2010, for a start-up I was involved in. Published quite a lot of didactic stuff on GitHub. Started with Ruby and Rails in 2006 writing applications in the Medical Industry. Sinatra added to the orchestra a few years ago. Node, Express and MongoDB since 2010. OK, golang is new... but it embodies all my experience of two and a half decades... C language, C++, Java... web apps... concurrency... got your backend.
No icon Web applications - 10 years experience
I have a decade of experience with web applications, initially with Java and the Spring Framework, passing through Perl and PHP, Drupal and the newer full stack javascript framework components, such as those composing the MEAN stack. From relational databases to NoSQL, I am now more and more interested in distributed applications and micro-services.
No icon Mean full stack - 5 years experience
First important application written in 2010, lots of pedagogic repos on GitHub, this stack is coming to the fore now
Drupal expert help Drupal - 8 years experience
Happy mentoring in all aspects of Drupal site building, module development, developer workflow with the "everything in code" paradigm, all levels of theming, "Headless" Drupal, etc. Very keen on sharing how to apply Lean UX and DevOps to website and web application mentoring, and to Drupal development in general. See my recent presentation at DrupalCon Latin America http://awebfactory.com/node/532 I am https://www.drupal.org/user/36006 (since 2007).
No icon Design patterns - 15 years experience
UML has formed part of my workflow for almost 20 years, and the Gang of Four has been on my shelf practically since the book came out in the nineties. Most recently, interested in close approximations to how MVC can be applied to website and web application projects (since there is no state with HTTP MVC itself is impossible to use as it is directly for desktop apps for example; see Addy Osmani)
No icon Software development - 22 years experience
Starting with process engineering in large companies with RUP and Agile (including Agile+CMMI), I have been specializing more and more in the Lean (Lean DevOps + Lean UX) applied to website and web application projects.
Git expert help Git - 9 years experience
Have worked with Git on website and web application projects for a number of years and have written about it since 2006 on my blog http://awebfactory.com/node/173
Mysql expert help MySQL - 15 years experience
Highly experienced in SQL and in language interfaces to MySql instances.
No icon XML - 10 years experience
More than ten years ago I led a development team in the creation of a newspaper publishing CMS in Java and using the now retired http://xml.apache.org/xindice/ project. Article viewing was effectuated with XSLT.
No icon Open source - 10 years experience
Been evangelizing, recommending and using Open Source and Free Software projects and components for over ten years, both in an enterprise context as well on small and medium projects.

Jean-Philippe Sirois May 25, 2016

Victor shows a lot of dedication in my progress. He consistently will go over our time limit and go the extra effort. He explains things slowly and paces sessions well!
Tim Bell Apr 23, 2016

Really enjoyed our first conversation.
John A Creps Apr 21, 2016

It has been very good session
Mohammad Ahmed Apr 19, 2016

Victor has shown me great debugging tools to use while I'm coding on my own, so I'm more autonomous when I'm programming. Great mentor!

Only had one session with Victor, but already it is clear he is going to be a great long term mentor! Very excited. He is patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging!
Tim Bell Mar 12, 2016

Victor is very kind, thoughtful, and carefully considers the problems and challenges I was facing. I am looking forward to collaborating with him in future sessions!
Tony Jacobson Feb 29, 2016

Victor is very experienced and knowledgeable
Mehrnoosh Feb 18, 2016

Victor is very patient and he will take to step by step to solve the problem.
Mehrnoosh Feb 17, 2016

As a first time Codementor user I think I was lucky to have Victor. He is very patient and knowledgable. I look forward to work with him in the future and learn more.
Sam Sedighian Feb 13, 2016

He didn't realize (or didn't want to solve the problem so quickly) that you would want to wrap jquery used within html using an angular controller as a directive in the controller, rather than directly in the html. Assured me that this would take "major refactoring;" it actually took 5 mins. I paid hours on hours trying to do this one thing, which an Upwork contractor did for free. Either didn't know what he was doing, and did, and tried to drag the work on by a very large multiplier.
David Blau Feb 12, 2016

Great progress, quick to implement a key step. Better understanding of the web stack after this session. Ball is in my court to get more specific about next step.
David Blau Feb 07, 2016

Great - marching along.
David Blau Feb 07, 2016

Great - for a number of reasons.
David Blau Feb 02, 2016

Great - understanding with my pace/level of knowledge, and a good emphasis on education without wasting time. I'm sure he can get up to speed quickly on specifics of meanjs scaffold idiosyncrasies, which is one my most important needs.
David Blau Feb 01, 2016

it was great meeting with Victor. He laid out a great plan
Tim Taylor Jan 08, 2016

Great Mentor
Hamzah Al Ghamdi Dec 02, 2015

Fantastic pair programming assistance
Teenum Applegate Nov 02, 2015

Explained how to solve the problem in great detail. This was really helpful as I now understand some of the inner workings of Drupal better.
Teenum Applegate Nov 01, 2015

Victor was very detailed in explaining various parts of the project. His balance of solving the problem and brining me along for the ride was perfect. Very good teacher overall
Scott Hause Oct 20, 2015

Victor is very knowledgeable and conveys his years of experience with his structured lessons.
lenny rozental Oct 13, 2015

Fantastic first session with Victor! I cannot wait for the next one!
Spyro Sep 25, 2015

Victor is really helpful and it has been a great session talking about angular and additional stuff related to javascript in general. He has also helped me with some issues that I asked him about and provided some clean and clear explanations for those problems. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for angular js or javascript issues. Cheers :)
DK Amaravadi Aug 07, 2015

Victor is patient and provides very clear explanations of high-level concepts and practical application of skills and code. He really knows his stuff and is as excited about learning as his students are. I'm looking forward to a continued long-term mentorship with Victor and honing my skills as a web developer!
Mica Jun 22, 2015

Was fine. We only did 15 min and it was using an API that he was unfamiliar with so was unable to help. Not his fault.
Brandon Jun 05, 2015

Knowledgeable, also offered some good advice and tips on how to improve as a developer.
Jocelyn Jeriah Jun 05, 2015

Victor is an incredible mentor. He is patient, encouraging, and quite brilliant in how he approaches problems. I would highly recommend Victor with anything to do with MEAN stack application development, and if you're a beginner programmer or entrepreneur looking to develop an MVP, then Victor is your go to guy.
Lane Watson May 23, 2015

It was a pleasure to work with Victor. He was able to suggest multiple different solutions that can be used to overcome any of the issues that I have, all of which was presented in a very clear, succinct and easy to understand manner. I would definitely recommend Victor as a mentor, and I would request his services again in the future if I required them
Dan Williams May 16, 2015

Niklas Rudemo Mar 13, 2015

What a privilege to work with such a great mentor and technologist. There are many great technical folks on this site, but Victor also understands mentoring, best practices and enterprise level thinking. It was nice to problem solve, and not just code. Am hoping to work with Victor for as long as I can grab hold of him. And make him proud of his investments in mentoring.
