About

I am a software developer in the New England area that enjoys delivering great products to users. Coding and building systems is both my passion and my hobby. This site is where I host my blog and post small articles about software development as well as code samples.

I've been developing web applications for several years. Currently I am working on a Solr/Blacklight application that is the front end for the discovery layer at the Brown University Library. I am also involved in other software development initiatives at the library including our researchers profile application (a VIVO app). The last couple of years I worked at Penn State on a Ruby on Rails project to power document repositories for libraries using the Hydra Framework. For many years I was also heavily involved on the Microsoft stack (C#, ASP.NET MVC, SQL Server) building complex and high-volume applications for a variety of industries.

My main areas of interest are web development in small and collaborative teams. I also enjoy learning new and interesting technologies and you'll find a wide variety of topics in my blog including algorithms and data structures, Ruby on Rails, Node.js/JavaScript, C#/ASP.NET MVC, Go, NoSQL databases, event-driven architectures, and bit of functional programming.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Colima's Technology Institute (Mexico) and several certifications including Microsoft Certified Software Developer (MCSD), ScrumMaster, and MongoDB for Developers (M101P).

In the last few years I've given presentations at local events and user groups in a variety of topics including CoffeeScript, Node.js, NoSQL/MongoDB, and Linked Data.
