Marcos Placona

Marcos Placona grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and started tinkering with web development when 14.400 kbs modems were the coolest thing. He then started a Computer Science degree, but a better opportunity arose on the other side of the Atlantic. In his 20s, he decided to move to England where he worked as a ColdFusion developer and started blogging at http://www.placona.co.uk .

After acquiring a taste for mobile application development, he has now published over 20 applications for all the major mobile markets, and hopes he will someday see a kid on the train playing one of his games.

He is now working as a technical lead for HolstelBookers, he tries to stay on top of its ColdFusion and .Net teams, as well as designing solutions and working with the stakeholders to turn dreams into reality.
