Karel Tamayo

Montevideo, Uruguay


I had contact with my first PC on 1995 and I was hooked up forever with computers.

I started learning BASIC at 8 and began writing programs using Turbo Pascal on 1998 for a High School Programming Contest at my hometown in Cuba.

I got my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Sciences at University of Computer Sciences (UCI), Havana, Cuba; where I did graduate with honors in 2007.

I'm currently working on a full-time job as a Senior Developer at Velocity Partners in Montevideo, Uruguay. I'm heavily using Docker for micro services, developing REST APIs and happily fighting against a bunch of challenging user stories on my daily job.

In the past, I've worked as:

Senior Software Developer at Sistemas Integrales LTDA, Bogotá DC. Colombia where I develop an ERP system using WPF, WCF and many other Microsoft Stack Technologies.

Senior Software Developer at Cubisima.com AG, a web site looking to help Cubans search, sell and buy houses, rents, jobs, cars and other services and goods.

I've had worked before as a Software Developer, Architect and Project Manager for Healthcare Systems and I enjoy developing websites using Microsoft Technologies.

Lately, I've been playing a lot with Azure and Cloud Computing technologies, noSQL Databases, Elastic Search and some other of the the good things we see popping out these days.

On my free time I enjoy the company of my beautiful wife, I play soccer with my Friends, listen Joaquín Sabina and Metallica (usually not together ;-))
