Howdy! I’m Felipe Vogel, software engineer and Rubyist.
I’m a full-stack developer who relishes the multi-faceted challenges of architecting a scalable and maintainable back end with an intuitive, delightful UI.
I also love fostering a culture of learning in engineering teams, as well as mentoring at places like Exercism.
Fun facts about me:
- I used to be a humanities teacher in a former career that took me all the way to West Africa.
- I grew up in Brazil in southern Amazonia, regularly living with the Jarawara indigenous people (whose village you can see on Google Maps—be sure to switch to satellite view).
- I’m a big Latin nerd. In grad school, I got to take most of my classes in Latin and lived in the domus Latina (Latin house), where we spoke only Latin except when we had guests… which, as you might guess, was rare.
- My favorite “just for fun” books are What If? and William Shakespeare’s Star Wars.
