I'm also the author of the book “Aptana RadRails: An IDE for Rails Development” and an active member of the Ruby scene, being a founding member of the Spanish Rails Conference, the Spanish Ruby Users Group (SRUG), madrid-rb, the Ruby users group in Madrid, and the Spanish Railscamp.
I'm currently based in London —with regular trips to Madrid. In the past I've worked in Zaragoza, Brescia, New York, Barcelona and Madrid.
Since November 1994 I've been earning my salt in software development, doing this and that in different places, industries and companies, including a small java-centric shop I co-founded —and then cowardly left— some years ago.
Along these years I've delivered training on things like Robotics, Software Engineering, JAVA, PHP and Ruby on Rails. I have also participated in several workshops and conferences talking about Ruby on Rails, plug-in and games programming, XML processing, CSS frameworks, SEO or agile development.
The list of companies I've worked for includes Fundación San Valero, Intersneter, Qarana Solutions, Genetsis Partners, Vector Software Factory, Intesys Integrated Services, Utende (I co-founded it), Fatwire and ASPgems. I'm proud to have helped clients ranging from small start ups to big banks and corporations in Spain, Italy, the US and the UK.I have worked as a lecturer for three Universities:
- Fundación San Valero (Software engineering I and Software analysis & design)
- Universidad Francisco de Vitoria (JAVA programming and Advanced JAVA)
- Tracor/San Pablo CEU (Web development with PHP and MySQL)
If you need someone to teach Ruby on Rails to your development team, please get in touch. I'm usually available for gigs both in London and Madrid, but I'm open to discuss other locations.
