Hi! I'm Jorge Rubiano, a passionate developer with several years of experience in the programming world. Throughout my career, I've discovered that one of the best ways to learn and teach is through personal projects, and in my case, games have been my greatest source of inspiration.

Each game I create challenges me to explore and master emerging technologies, from frameworks to libraries, and even design concepts and game logic.
Jorrik’s first lines of code were in the days jQuery ruled. That didn’t scare him. Now he has 6+ years of frontend experience using React and Vue during his day job.
