Who am I?

1

I'm Eric Lima.

I'm a passionate and dedicated we developer who has developed hundreds of different websites that have a combined total of over a million page views. My love for programming lead me to pursue a Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Science at University of Massachusetts at Lowell. This website showcases some of my best work, although I'm really fond of anything with: Ruby on Rails with React. I've worked with many different techonologies however such as wordpress, php, node, c++, etc but I'm always trying to learn something new.

Currently, I am working fulltime to build client websites. While I have completed over hundreds projects, I have highlighted only some of my best work below.

What languages do I prefer as my primary stack?

Ruby

Ruby is what I love about programming. It's slick and easy. It doesn't have any strange issues with it's syntax. It's my personal choice for web development. I also know PHP, ASP.Net, and Python however.

Rails

Rails is a noteworthy framework in the web dev world because it contains many of the modern development practices and is rather modular. It allows you to have the ability to develop sites quickly and effectively.

React

React can very well be the future of javascript web frameworks. It's proving itself to be the most well rounded framework for organizing data. Many major brands are adopting React in their big projects.

Work Experience

Web Development

Front or Back End Developer. I am enjoying it all. I am strong in both. I've been working full stack for nearly all of my clients and personal work. I'm unscripted because I'm focused on delivering a website itself. Not particular items, but the whole thing.

Startups

I am part of the Reverse Startups Foundation run by a senior level friend of mine named Michael Bourque. Together we founded a startup called uSignal. Currently I'm not involved with many startups but it's still an interesting area for me.

General Computing

If you were to take a look at all the statistics of my life, then you'd probably see something quite noteworthy. That thing would be the amount of time I've spent my life away infront of a computer screen. I should probably go outside once in a while.

Information Technology

I've worked in the IT field for a small while. While I've never found IT as interesting to me as Web Dev, I did have a couple of short contract roles or jobs that involved me doing fixing the hardware part of computers.

I like to Open
Source

The open source movement is huge and it’s only getting bigger. It can be scary for some people to post their hard work to the public, but there’s a lot of good that can come of it.

New Tech

Lots of really cool technologies are being developed. Just recently the world is getting booster boards, electric cars, electric motors, arduinos, etc. I can't help but love these things because they make my life more automated, cost efficient, and just awesome.

Local Communities

Helping the local communities around me with software is something I care passionately for. I've helped non-profit organizations such as Code for Boston doing wonderful things. I've worked on non profit projects for the MBTA as well as others.
