Llevo 8 años programando profesionalmente. En todo este tiempo he participado en argumentos en los que siempre defiendo una postura vehemente, y al final termino cambiando de bando. Me sucedió cuando estaba en la universidad y era partidario del software libre. Ahora no le doy la espalda a desarrollar software privativo aunque soy impulsor del software open source. Con los lenguajes también me ha pasado, he despotricado contra PHP y Java.
Last year I got a fantastic job as an remote Front-End Web Developer for a company based on Silicon Valley. Things were going fine but in the end it was being difficult for me because of my poor domain of the language, so I quit. Now I’m learning and practicing before go back to the road. I’m confident with my code skills but I’m also learning about algorithms, data structures, design patterns and architecture.
I am redesigning my website, I have decided to create this blog in Hugo. I bought this domain a few months ago and I decided to put it to good use, I have projects and ideas to develop but I’ve waited until I’ve finished something. Doing something perfect will keep me from having something to present as a portfolio and as a project. Also, I want to practice my English, I am a Spanish native speaker and it’s difficult for me talk and listen in english.
This is my third year working remotely and not from home. I think we have to make clear the difference between terms because a lot of recruiters and managers think that we want to work remote so we don’t leave home and don’t think about the freedom that comes with working remotely. First of all, the freedom you get to decide your schedule, work at your own peace and to meet goals before hours.
