Sandro Pasquali, Web Practice Lead

A life lesson Sandro learned while writing three books on Node.js is that you need good editors more than you need good ideas. From patenting the first JavaScript frameworks and advertising systems in the late 90s, to consulting with large digital media firms in New York on cutting-edge content distribution systems, Sandro has worked with ambitious enterprise clients across 3 countries to build systems essential to their success. For Sandro, the client is the “editor” interested in guiding us toward a shared goal, be it a cutting-edge interface or data modeling tool, chatbot, serverless microservices architecture, or just a compelling user experience.
