I have more than 17 years of IT experience, involving several disciplines ranging from integrator and architect of enterprise-class IT services to becoming a web technologies expert in the last nine years. I've been leading the design and technical architecture of public websites and intranets related projects and web applications as well. I've been developing project management tasks very often, focusing on agile and lean methodologies. I also consider myself expert on state-of-the-art web technologies, content management solutions, electronic gadgets and IT world in general.

My professional career has always been linked to the university environment where I was working for more than 15 years. I'm very familiar with a university needs, its insides and outs and the day to day operations in academic environments.

I've been involved with the Open Source community since 2005, especially with the Python-based Plone CMS (http://plone.org) community which I've been very active contributing with code, organizing sprints and attending Plone Conferences as speaker. I organized the Barcelona Plone Conference 2017 (https://2017.ploneconf.org) held at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya).

On 2010 I authored a book called "Plone 3 Intranets", published by Packt Publishing. It is targeted to beginners and users with no previous experience about Plone who wants to learn to design, build and deploy a reliable, full-featured, and secure Plone-based intranet easily from scratch.

I consider myself as a person that "makes things happen", a passionate of technology, and I love to create useful things.

My goal is to be part of great projects helping to create things used by thousands of persons.
