Born and raised in Barcelona, I'm fascinated by computers since a young age. As an already self-taught developer, I studied both sociology (specialized in education and culture) and computer engineering at different universities. I am a perpetual learner, a tinkerer, a hacker. If I could take only one book to a desert island, it would probably be a printed version of wikipedia (although that would probably be cheating).

Born in the bilingual city of Barcelona, I speak both Spanish and Catalan natively. Having learned German and English from a young age allows me to speak both languages fluently.
The languages we use to tell computers what to do, each being unique. I don't think I will ever truly master most languages, as there are always new things to learn and different ways to get to the same goal.
I have omitted some languages in this list in which I have exprierience but I do not expect to use again, like Pascal or Visual Basic, and those in which I have minimal experience, like Haskell, Julia and R.
Below some of the skills I trained and used professionally and worth highlighting are listed.
