Arturo Campos Senior Front-end Engineer

ABOUT ME

Passionate engineer based in Costa Rica; happily married to Marisol and proud father of Sol & Nico.

I started my career as a Back-End Developer, but after some time I realized that I have more fun working with client-side technologies. Since then JavaScript is my passion, enjoying it a little bit more every single day for the last 11 years.

INTERESTS

  • Family: I am a family guy, I love to invest time with my wife and kids who are still pretty young (5 and 7).
  • Open Source Software: I enjoy exploring open source projects built on top of JavaScript.
  • Mountain Biking: I have lots of fun on my bike. I used to take part in professional races, but now it's just a recreational hobby.
