About me


Hello, my name is Julián Duque, I'm from Medellín, Colombia 🇨🇴 but currently living in Tampa Bay, FL 🇺🇸.

I'm a community leader, public speaker, JavaScript/Node.js evangelist, and an official Node.js collaborator (Emeritus). I work at Salesforce as a Lead Developer Advocate and previously organizing JSConf and NodeConf Colombia, also helped organize Suncoast.js in St. Petersburg, FL, and MedellinJS, the largest JavaScript user group in Colombia with 4500+ registered members.

I'm also passionate about education, and I've been teaching software development fundamentals, JavaScript, and Node.js through different community workshops, professional training engagements, and online platforms such as Platzi. Also, I've worked in education projects like Make It Real and the Coderise project as a volunteer, teaching web programming and JavaScript to teens from 13 to 17 years old in Medellín, Colombia.

Fun fact: I love praying mantises and other type of critters!
