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. Lately I’ve been diving more and more into AI/ML and the potentialities that it brings to out future.

I’m currently working as a freelancer and available for contract work.

I’m a big GTD evangelist and all-round productivity enthusiast. I do private coaching and wrote a book on the topic.

This website also hosts 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 you can also find me on LinkedIn, GitHub and twitter.
