Toronto, Canada

Hi, I'm Alex! I'm a Software Engineer who started creating content and is now a Developer Advocate!

I have 9+ years of experience as a software engineer. I learned MuleSoft as part of my job and I've been in love ever since.

I started creating content as a hobby and I liked it so much that I created ProstDev. I now help other professionals to create their own content!

I believe education should be fun. Learning new technologies shouldn't be hard. My mission is to teach complex concepts in a simple way and help people on their tech journey.

In the rest of this page, you will learn more about my qualifications and experience. If you need more details, feel free to check out my LinkedIn page.
