Hello 👋, my name is Nelson and I'm a software and database developer currently living in the Falkland Islands.

Full Stack Software Developer.

I arrived in the Falkland Islands in November 2013 and have worked in a number of roles, primarily as a developer for a local company working mainly in government software infrastructure. In August 2018 I went to Bogota, Colombia to specialise in web application development using a popular framework called Ruby on Rails. Currently I work as a Customs and Immigration Officer for the Falkland Islands Government and I'm working towards a university degree. I'm always happy to help with new software implementations or to improve current infrastructure.


Currently I'm focused mainly in developing web applications using Rails and StimulusReflex but I'm capable of developing for desktop environments on Windows, Mac and Linux.

HTML 60%
CSS 60%
JavaScript 75%
Ruby 80%
Rails 90%
C#/.NET 70%


I've worked in a diverse number of roles and industries since my teens, during these years I've tried to understand and improve the way I work with the use of technologies. Below are some of my most relevant experiences in recent years.
