Hi I'm Miguel Useche!

I am a Software Engineer at Skillshare. I'm from San Cristóbal, Venezuela but living in Colombia (UTC -5).
I love to promote open source technologies by giving talks, writing in my technology blog or helping with code.
I used to be a professor of programming and operating systems at Universidad del Táchira and I was part of Mozilla Tech Speakers but I still find ways to teach others.

Do you want me to speak at your event?

Sure! I love to give talks! Just go to the contact section and send me an email with the information. I can give talks about: Web browsers, Developer Tools, WebAssembly, WordPress and its plugin development, Operating systems, Free Software, etc.

My services


I can implement any design you have. If you need a static/small page I build it with JAMStack. Bigger or complex websites are implemented with WordPress. If you need custom web apps or SPA, I work with Vue and React.
I can adapt to your requirements and implement websites using the latest technologies and standards.


I like to develop systems that guarantee security, easy maintaining, stability, scalability and lower costs. I can create web services for webapps, websites using content management systems like WordPress where I can create plugins and extensions to customize the CMS according to client's requirements. Also I've experience creating REST APIs using PHP or even with WordPress to integrate third party services.


I work with Linux servers, do installations, service maintaining, write scripts to solve problems or to automate processes, write Firewalls, install, implement or migrate systems or databases, server's services optimization to improve website loading performance. I have some experience using Amazon Web Services (AWS) and many cloud services.
