“Only the curious have something to find.” Unknown

My name is Deny Dias (a.k.a. @denydias). I build software and services for humans.

In a sentence: I'm what people call a full-stack software developer, a DevOp or whatever the hype word for someone who masters the whole tech cycle may be.

I'm a specialist at software design, specification, development, deployment and the life-cycle of mission critical operations, both on-premise and in the cloud. I have a solid career in streaming media and digital asset management segments, with emphasis on massive content acquisition, processing, storage, reuse and distribution. I also have huge experience with many IT infrastructure related areas.

My (non-exhaustive) skill set at a glance:

This Blog

MexApi is just my blog. The place where I write about anything I judge worth of sharing, spanning from complex tech stuff to everyday thoughts.

One word of advice: I write in Brazilian Portuguese. My native language lacks content in my favorite subject, while there are so many good sources written in English out there.
