Hi I'm Mario DeLaPaz! I'm a software developer with the NJ Dept of Corrections. I'm a part-time soccer referee on the side and also play the sport whenever I get the chance. I stumbled upon dev.to not too long ago and since then gained an interest in reading blogs and non-fiction books that'll contribute to my growth. My interests range from productivity, git, open source, mindfulness, men's fashion, creating habits and more. I recently became webmaster for SHPE NJ professional chapter. I also contribute to my local alumni chapter, NJIT Alumni Assoc, helping plan events for the year. Want to learn more? Send me a note using the contact form below!
