My name is Ruben Santos, I am from Algarve, a region in the south of Portugal, and I was born in 1992. I love everything that is related with new technologies. I have studied computer engineer, and at this moment I am focused in the web development. In my free time I like to read, listen to music, watch series and play videogames. Besides that, I might have two addictions that I cannot live without: coffee and gym. What I like most and what I am always looking for is to improve myself, make a better version of me everyday.

Elecctro is an IoT focused on vending machines. They produced a hardware that can be used by any vending machine and would make it smarter, for instance, you would be able to buy with your credit card or track the vends in real-time. I started working as a backend developer where I ended up most of the time, basically creating rest API endpoints for the web and mobile applications. Besides my main task as a backend developer, I also worked in the frontend, helping to create new sections on the dashboard.
