About me

Hi, my name is Danilo Velásquez Urrutia, I’m a Chilean software engineer living in the sunny city of Barcelona.

I’ve been working as a software engineer since 2010. Over the years I’ve worked with technologies such as J2EE, .NET, Javascript, Typescript among others.

I love the web and what represents. Their openness and accessibility is something that drew me to work on it. Since 2005, I’ve been doing FrontEnd development, where my main concerns have been on how teams work, and how our users feel our products.

Since 2019, I’ve been actively working to helping other teams to improve their performance and the performance of their products.

Lately, I’ve been working with some of the most visited pages in Italy, Belarus and Hungary, helping them to detect where the performance issues are, and how to help them to overcome it.

From my perspective, there are two important things, user experience and developer experience (UX/DX), and I truly believe that (as Richard Branson accurately pointed) if you take care of your people, they will take care of the business themselves.
