Carlos Cessa
Mexican developer and wannabe designer, when not behind a computer you can most likely find me playing tennis or GTA V. I have a great passion for writing concise, modular and maintainable code. With around 10 years of experience with web development, whether it be front or back end, my languages of choice are PHP, JavaScript, Java, Objective-C, C and HTML/CSS. I work at my own development company here in Mexico, write for Tuts+ since 2011 and take freelancing jobs from time to time.
