Smart contract development in the Solidity programming language, using front-end libraries like web3.js, ethers.js, and React for UI development, and unit testing with frameworks like Truffle and the OpenZeppelin test environment are my core skill set. I've successfully deployed dozens of smart contracts to the Ethereum testnets and mainnet.
Most recently, I've been writing smart contracts to interact with various DeFi, decentralized finance, protocols, like Aave, Uniswap, Kyber, and dYdX, to facilitate flash loans. I have a deep desire to help build the future of Web 3. But I also love talking about the newest things happening in blockchain and DeFi, so email me if you just want to chat.
I'm particularly focused on developments on the Ethereum blockchain. However, there's always new innovations to explore in this space beyond any single blockchain. For instance, those of us who understand it are responsible for spreading the good word of Bitcoin.
My name is Luis and I made a pledge to be one of the one million devs when I first heard about the announcement in the fall of 2018. I’ve been actively following the crypto industry since I first heard about Bitcoin during the 2017 bull run. Since then, I developed an intimate, conceptual understanding of blockchain technology. But it wasn’t until 2019 that I decided to go all in and help build the future crypto promises.
I’ve been recording my coding journey on the OpenZeppelin forum and on my Twitter. I’ve also been building this site to display some of my projects and past articles. I’m currently adding more projects and articles I have saved locally but haven’t deployed or published yet.
I’m rather obsessed with crypto. The potential of this technology and the current opportunities in the industry literally keep me up at night. But I’m never tired the next day because being a part of this industry energizes me more than any other work ever has before. I’m so grateful that I happened across that first Facebook post that started me down this rabbit hole in 2017. I only wish I had learned about this industry sooner so I could’ve started this journey sooner.
