About the author : Daniel Rubio


I'm a technologist with 20 years of experience, focused on leveraging technology to deliver business continuity for mission critical and back-office operations. I continue to be a hands-on technical lead that can bring tech visions -- small or large -- to life, by either directly implementing a project's most critical software tasks or guiding stakeholders through a project's key technical choices so they're able to delegate tasks to internal teams or contractors with ease of mind.
