Hello, my name is
I'm an engineer with deep experience on programming (mainly PHP, some Python), system scripting (Perl, bash), frameworks (Drupal, Symfony), database administration and fine tunning (MySQL), source control (cvs/svn, darcs, git), caching (CDNs, memcached, Varnish), streaming (live and on demand video), testing, high performance and high availability.
I have experience in both (i) the art of running your own company and (ii) the art of working for a big one. Joinning both experiences I have dealt with getting projects/gigs, project management, development time, (sometimes strange) corporate policies, 24x7, HTML standards & browser compatibility, user support, hiring & motivating people and, last but not least, money.
Cofounder and Managing Director, focused on Key Account Management and Strategic Technical Leadership. The team reached 30+ members in 2012 and 2013. Between 2013 and 2014 we created Drufony, a publishing and commerce solution based on Symfony, allowing the company to focus on one product and perform a downsizing. While keeping the ownership of the company, I left the day-to-day responsabilities in this downsizing in 2014.
Management of backend & frontend development, systems and operations of motogp.com, including 24x7 monitoring and datacenter management. I managed the refactoring of the whole MotoGP codebase, creating a MVC based framework. A similar code was released as Lemur Framework, published during a talk in PHP Barcelona Conference 2010. I left this position after 3 seasons, to start a new company and to spend more time with my family.
I cofounded Alquimia, a Drupal agency. Before, I cofounded Interactors, a telecommuting based cooperative. Before, I maintained packages on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution, I used to write and translate documentation and helped organising GNOME Guadec3 (2002). Before, I was an intern in the University, maintaining computers and databases. Before, I got a job in an NGO in which I had previously been a volunteer and spent some time in Croatia, Belgium, Hungary and Germany. Before, I volunteered in a free radio station, where I received technical training.
