Hi! My name is

David Goudet

I'm a Software Engineer, Author, and Teller of Bad Jokes.

In my journey to avoid developers' boredom, I have created programming and AI courses, interesting articles, and mentoring programs.

I started creating apps over 10 years ago, working with so many technologies that it could be difficult for a recruiter to differentiate if they are Pokemon. But I'm mostly focused on development with Ruby, Python, and machine learning.

I'm also a top author on Medium, I've been interviewed on television a lot of times, and I'm also an experienced bachata and salsa dancer (More about this crazy career at the end of the page).

    About Me

    I was born in Caracas πŸ‡»πŸ‡ͺ, Madrid is my home πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ, and the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ is my place for inspiration.
    Nothing was easy for me, I was born dumb and poor 😐, and that's the main reason I enjoy helping others to avoid the victim's mindset and start working hard and cleverly towards their dreams.

    I decided to study Computer Engineering when I first saw the engineers working with robots and AI πŸ€–. But while studying I got interested in politics, psychology, and I even founded two tech startups.

    I started developing terrible websites for clients (sorry about that; I was junior dev) but luckily, my friends were my mentors and showed me how to become a better developer by reading books and being obsessed with the details.

    I founded my first startup to create apps for clients. It was an amazing journey with two partners that lasted a couple of years. My second startup, Hezion Studios, was a gamification studio where I ended up creating open courses about development and AI for hundreds of students.

    With these two startups working, I got selected for a program in the USA called Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative. I had never left my country, and suddenly I was living in 4 major American cities, meeting amazing people from all over the world.

    In my life as a developer, I was being continuously helped by senior software engineers that carefully taught me the steps to become a better engineer, and because of them, my obsession with books started.

    The next year I started working full time for an American software company, and then I moved to Spain.

    After moving to Spain and becoming addicted to learning, my life changed completely. I started dancing and meeting a lot of wonderful people in Madrid, becoming super confident, healthy, more sociable than ever, but also a better engineer. With all that, I started writing articles about the programming lifestyle and moved to another company.

    While a lot of things are happening in my life, I am more committed than ever to helping others learn and have fun. Are you joining this adventure?
