My name is Phanor Coll, coffee drinking code writer from Merida, Venezuela. I've been writting code since I was very young, but professionally for the last 20 years. I started as a back-end developer and then moved to the front-end side of things working mainly with reactjs and then adding some flavour to the mix with redux & thunk, creating components, complete dashboards and connecting them to APIs, i's been a fun journey jumping into ES6 from Go and Java. I've been a HUGE!! and I mean HUGEEEE fan of Go for more than 2 years now, having fun and headaches creating CLI tools for clients or just helping them on the backend.
On the data side of things, I've been working with Neo4j for the last 6 years, Im an advocate for Latin America, giving talks all over the place about graphs and Neo4j and how to use it, what is good for, pretty much talking about fun stuff. I feel lucky to have the support of the Neo4j community for this, spreading the love for Graphs .
I'm an outgoing person who loves to think outside the box, reading is my main hobby besides playing the guitar and learning new technologies is my daily dose of adrenaline! just having fun writting some code to test some crazy idea.

Being from Venezuela my native language is Spanish, but I had the luck to have lived in New Jersey for 4.5 years and I had the priviledge of learning what I consider the most valuable tool in my job, English, and although it's not perfect, i'm able to communicate very efficiently during a conference call or just writing a doc.
