Andre Madarang
Full Stack Web Developer

My primary interest is in web development, both front end and back end. The industry is fast paced and constantly moving forward. It is one that requires constant education throughout your entire career. This is exciting to me as there will always be new things to learn and new challenges to overcome. I primarily specialize on the LEMP (PHP) stack, with emphasis on the Laravel PHP framework and the ecosystem that surrounds it.
