I am a web developer enjoying the assortments of technology-plumbing and bit-flipping required to build applications, lay-out information and ship content throughout web circuits.
With feet in both the design and programming camps, I like to concilate my analytical and creative sides doing work in the intersection of IT and visual communication.
I professionaly worked as a photographer and graphic designer before becoming a web developer.
I like building things (started treasuring my hardware toolbox by the time I was six) and find pleasure in creating objects with a sense of craftsmanship. I build dynamic websites and applications after getting hooked with the power and possibilities of databases and programming languages.
I'm fond of unix-like software and systems. I keep a technical blog with notes and tidbits about some of the GNU tools, which reflect part of my interest in the excellence reached by the free software culture.
Richard Stallman (the same guy that started the GNU movement and wrote the GPLlicence model)is the father of Emacs, the superior lisp-machine, which some could mistakenly judge merely as a text-editor. View my Flipboard Magazine with a collection of articles on the subject
This application manages patientss and dental treatments performed by students at a national university (Facultad de OdontologÃa/Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina) Along with this I wrote another subsidiary app for handling appointments and keeping track of equipment usage at post-graduate courses.
At the beginnings of my programming career (~2005) I challenged myself to write a php/mysql database manager. Though aware of the "wheel reinvention" risk, I followed the advice of a fellow programmer on the benefits of the "learn by doing" approach. Certainly the oportunity allowed me to gain a deeper insight of the technologies I was after. By overcoming many techical issues I learned a great deal and got the satisfaction of authoring a flexible product with lots of features I wished to have .
