- Villa Santa Rita Buenos Aires
I'm a Programmer and a Tech Lead. A Trainer and a Blogger, too. I'm an Open-Source and TDD advocate. I design, build and lead hight-quality software projects.
I'm passionate about what I do and I'm blessed to do what I love.
I started using computers when I was 9, programming when I was 10. Those days, I wrote many programs in Basic for Commodore, mostly small games.
When I was 18, I got my degree in Computer Technical. Back then, I wrote some real-life programs in Visual Basic, like an administrative software for taxi agencies.
My first real work was in a banking software company called G&F in February of 2000. I started working as a junior programmer and through the years I became senior developer, tester, project leader, tech leader and finally, software architect. Those systems had strong volume, performance and security requirements.
After eight years on G&F, I felt the need to grow up and embrace new technologies. Then I switched to Novamens, where I started developing Erlang systems for a VoIP company.
At the same time I was studying in the Buenos Aires University to became the computer scientist I am now. My final thesis project was a development platform built in Haskell, called λPage: http://haskell.hpage.com.
I spent two years working at Novamens, then I met Chad DePue when he was creating Inaka. I joined the company and I'm working there since its very beginnings, developing highly concurrent applications for this new social world we're living in. I'm now it's CTO and Inaka is now part of Erlang-Solutions, where I work as a Tech Lead and Trainer, too.
After several years working with Erlang, I feel very confident with it. I've been in a Tech Lead position for enough time to feel confident with it, too. Nevertheless, I keep learning new stuff about both worlds every day. And what I learn, I share through my blog :)
What I like most of my work are the challenges and the possibilities to use my creativity in a productive way.
