I am Renato Athaydes.
This is my personal website.
It was created using only HTML/CSS and Magnanimous, a static website generator that I wrote myself.
Here you’ll find blog posts I wrote and links to some of my programming side projects.

Here is a list of my favourite side-projects.
I use side-projects to try new things, learn technologies in depth, create useful things I actually need!!! And, to be frank, because I love writing software, even in my spare time when I get a chance!
