Hello, I am

About me

Web and Android Developer. Specialist in PHP and Symfony Framework,I am an enthusiast about new technologies,

and I allways try to keep updated with the most recent news and trends in the tech and programming world.

Despite programming mostly in PHP and Symfony, I allways look to be informed about other programing languages and methodologies so I can keep improving my knowledge and skills. By having a more global knowledge, even if it is superficial, about other technologies and the most recent programming trends, I can have a better view of options when starting a new project so I can choose the most appropriate technology to fullfill the project requirements.

Also, I can take ideas and techniques from other languages and frameworks about how to do certain task.

More important than the technology itself, is to deliver a product that meets the client needs, while having fun doing it and learning new things!

One of the main reasons I like to be a programmer, is that I can make other people lives easier by developing solutions that automate the boring work and make them more productive, leaving them with more time for enjoying their lives.

I think its important to be really good at something but dont ignore all the rest. There is allways room for improvement. The most important thing is: never stop learning!

I love the OSS comunnity and I would like to contribute more that I do. I also have a great interest in learning and applying best practices, design patterns and planning the architecture of an application.
