Barcelona, 1996. I began to study philosophy in 1985 but after a couple of years, I realized that I spent more time in the computer rooms of the opposite building that in the classes of medieval and modern philosophy so, about 1988 I started working on a small computer store in my neighbourhood where I learnt the basics of programming until 1989, when I started working on the IBM in projects for the AS/400 systems.
I was at IBM for a year and afterwards, I continued working on my own in small projects for AS/400 and PC-based systems until in 1992 I enrolled in the Faculty of Computer Science where I graduated in 1995 specializing in computer-oriented systems business management and databases.
Thereafter and always from my own company, I took part in various IT projects for both public and private institutions, I participated in the creation of the official association of computer technicians of Catalunya (COETIC), I worked as associate professor with several universities in the subjects of programming, project management and, computer networks. And meanwhile, during those years, in addition also I was traveling, taking pictures, painting, moving house several times… and always studying new things.
And so continued in various areas of computer science, until August 2010, when I discovered WordPress, an open source project that from the first moment I think it’s wonderful and, without doubt, from then it becames the backbone of most my computing projects.
