Hi there! I’m Alex Jover, a passionate Web developer and instructor at Egghead.io from Spain. I’ve published the Testing Vuejs components with Jest book on Leanpub. I write on Alligator. I co-organize Alicante Frontend and participate at other meetups and conferences. You can find me on twitter as @alexjoverm, writing here or working on open source and side projects.

Interested on web performance and PWA (this blog is one), long term quality, reusability, patterns and best practices. Although, when it comes to coding, I’m mainly focused on Javascript and all its ecosystem. Interested on the human side of coding and well being among the community.
