Arthur De Araujo

A software developer working primarily on iOS applications.

About Me

Hi, I’m Arthur! I am pursuing a bachelors of science degree in computer science at University at Buffalo. I combine my skills in design and programming to create products that people enjoy. My interests lie in computer science, UI/UX design, and entrepreneurship. I've worked on a multitude of iOS applications and at a few startups, some of which are displayed below.

Skills: I'm mostly self-taught in iOS apart from attending MakeSchool’s Summer Academy back in 2014, where they taught how to create iOS games. Since then I've created a bunch of fun projects, transitioned from games to non-game apps, dabbled in a few technologies and picked up a solid eye for UI/UX design.

Belief: I strongly believe that anyone can do anything if they put in the time and effort.
“Without faith, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.” - Mary Bethune.

Future Plans: I’m very excited about the future of augmented/virtual reality and React Native. But I don't think now is the prime time to develop on those technologies (except AR for iOS). I am always working on a side project, and I am currently diving into the relatively new programming language called Elixir.

Thanks for visiting my website. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email.
