Jorge Ferreiro is a Frontend Software Engineer @Eventbrite in their R&D department, and he is a former Software Engineer Intern @Amazon.
Jorge fell in love with coding at the ripe old age of six, and by the time he was ten, he was already coding his own projects. Bitten by the entrepreneurial bug by his early teens Jorge began to envision a career at the intersection of business and programming. He launched his own successful projects while still in junior high school. For example, Music4deejays, his highly successful beta-test had an earth-shattering nearly 60,000 downloads in its first eight weeks alone.
He earned his four-year degree in Computer Science at UCM in his hometown of Madrid, Spain. The University of California at Berkeley recognized his talent and offered him the chance to advance his education there during the summer of 2017. One year earlier, he spent some weeks in China after being offered a scholarship by tech giant Huawei.
His current focus is on Frontend, and he is particularly interested in ES2016, React, Redux, Web Performance, Design Systems, and Webpack. He also has Backend experience with technologies such as Node.JS, Mongo.DB, Redis and Java 8.
Jorge has a much-anticipated YouTube program currently in development, which is slated for launch in the Fall of 2019.
