Hi! I’m Nuno Donato 👋
A chronic developer born and living in Portugal.

I started coding with QBasic when I was 7, and since then it has been part of my life. I’ve done simple apps, complex apps, full-stack development on the web (Laravel ❤), designed databases, developed games and love to imagine and create small tools. I’m working solo as a freelancer, and available for contract work.

This website serves as my online portfolio and my main blog where I post everything from tech and parenting to off-grid and simple-living.

The best way to reach out to me is via email, but I’m also regularly on twitter.
