About me

Hi, I'm Santiago!

I work at Levatas, and I've been developing software since 1994.

I like to tell people that I specialize in building scalable and fast enterprise software applications (with "fast" and "scalable" being the two key words here), but I'm equally fine saying that I'm just a developer.

I spend most of my time thinking about software engineering and helping shape and grow the amazing team that works with me (most of my stories here you can read on this site.) Since the beginning of 2015 I've been working on my Computer Science Master's degree (with Georgia Tech), which has been challenging but I'm enjoying every minute of it.

I built everything you see here from scratch using Python running on Google's App Engine. It's been a labor of love, and I'm very proud of it. The site is simple (or at least, as simple as I could make it.) I like it that way. I like it to be about reading and nothing else.

You can visit the archive for everything I've written so far. You can also follow me on Twitter if you are into that sort of thing. Even better, you should subscribe to this site's RSS feed too stay up to date with everything I post.

Thank you for reading!
