Hello, I'm Ricardo!

My name is Ricardo Cino, I'm a Developer from the Netherlands with my main focus around web applications.

Where to start, I've been interested in web development since around 2005 when I first met HTML in an after-school program. This was actually around the time we all still used software like frontpage and DreamWeaver to make beautiful html websites. Soon after this, I discovered a real editor like Notepad++ and the terror fun of programming began.

Fast forward 10 years, it's 2015, and working for my first development job! Putting the skills I've learned on the side to good use, at this time my main language had been shifted to PHP and this turned out to be the language I'd stick with for a long time. Up to this day, most of the applications (small and large) have been built in PHP in different frameworks.

My interest of purely programming back-end software started to change when I met AWS in around 2017. This felt huge. It first started with the small stuff, just running an application on EC2 with an RDS backend but soon after we "needed" to use Lambda which of course I didn't mind looking into. This is just the tip of the iceberg when thinking about the projects I've worked on while using AWS, there isn't a single project in the last 3 years that doesn't use Amazon Web Services. Working that much with AWS motivated me to get some certifications, which I'll list below (because I need to flex) :

  1. Amazon Web Services Cloud Practitioner
  2. AWS Certified Developer – Associate
  3. AWS Certified SysOps Administrator – Associate
  4. AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate
  5. AWS Certified DevOps Engineer – Professional

Can be verified on: Credly

I can safely say I'm interested in achieving all AWS Certifications as there is lots and lots more to learn.

This is a brief introduction to who I am, or at least what I am interested in. There is a 100% chance that I will update this page at least 100 times because it's quite strange to write these things about yourself.

As a closing note, everything written on this blog is on a personal note and all opinions are my own. As well as the spelling mistakes.
