I am an experienced IT worker that started a transition to programming some years ago.

I have recently completed my bachelor's in Software Engineering and, after being part of a team heavily invested in open source, upstream contributions, internet Standards and IETF participation, I'm currently part of an international non-profit organization focused on Digital Rights, censorship circumvention, privacy and anonymity.

Three professional projects I have contributed to: Git in Wireshark, where I added base functionality, testing, and HTTPS support to the Git dissector; BIND's authoritative and recursive DNS server, where I assisted in the migration of the unit test suit from atf to cmocka, expanded base functionality and output parsing for both its open source and private repositories; a proprietary online inspection system for my graduation thesis that provides management of test data with error handling control, user access management, machine and network status management, order management, and results report generation.

Technologies I have professional experience with: C, Python, Perl, bash scripting, Java, Spring-boot, MySQL, vue.js, node.js, SockJS, HTML5, JUnit, gdb/lldb, Git, Jenkins.

Additional academic experience with: C++, C#, Unity3D, openGL, Android Studio, WordPress and ASP.NET MVC web applications, SOA using web services and protocols (HTTP, REST APIs, SOAP, Java EE, Spring MVC, gradle, mybatis, Maven, JSON, Jquery, Apache tomcat, servlets, xml).

My previous IT work experience consists of 5 years as a Linux/Windows systems administrator, and storage, server, network, and peripherals engineer for Hewlett-Packard, with trainer and mentor functions.

Some of my achievements to date are:

Being a top performer. Certifying in CCNA and Linux+. Earning a full scholarship to study Software Engineeringabroad. Becoming fluent in a third language. Quickly familiarizing myself around BIND's codebase of ~700 000 lines. Becoming a contributor for Git, Mozilla, and Wireshark open source projects. Becoming a contributor at standardization discussions at the IETF and a mentor for programs relating to IETF/W3C.

Languages: Spanish, English, Chinese Mandarin, basic French.
