Hola, I'm Alberto Fortes.

What I use in my day a day as front-end developer.

As remote front-end developer, working as team lead in a 100% remote team I need to uses a combination of tech stuff and software, but also some other even more important like a comfortable office, big desk, coworkers to share my space, books, gym machine and a retro arcade. Yes, we need it.

My own full equiped office:

  • Late 2015 MacBook Pro Retina 15". 2,5 GHz Intel Core i7. 16GB. AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2 GB.
