Having entered the world of computers at the tender age of 5, with a TIMEX 2048, I began programming in BASIC at 7 and I have since then developed my knowledge in several areas of IT.
Django is my favourite generic web framework. Rails is great too, and if I have to use PHP, then I choose Laravel.
I am a pragmatic perfectionist. I always strive to do the best thing while trying to maintain a healthy balance between perfect and practical. Well built software, with organised, clean and tested code, making use of best practices and proven methodologies is a beautiful thing.
Being also an environmentalist at heart, I always strive to do what's best for the environment and I constantly try to spread awareness of "little big" things that anyone can do and can make a huge difference for everyone on the planet.
I have also always been connected to sports since I was young. Besides bodyboard, surf and MTB, which I do regularly, I practised swimming for 9 years, rowing for 4 years (including a national championship and lots of smaller regional races), and Kung Fu and Tai Chi since 1998.
I am cheerful, sociable, easy going and a person of principles, greatly appreciating values such as honesty, humility, righteousness, patience and loyalty.
