I'm Daniel. I'm from Barcelona and I've been a programmer since 2009.
From a young age, I found myself immersed in a world of vintage computers. My journey into programming began with a trusty BASIC book, and later, the boundless resources of the Internet. Driven by curiosity and determination, I embarked on a self-taught path to a career in software development. While I had initially envisioned studying Software Engineering, life had other plans in store for me 😫. Undeterred, I persevered and worked relentlessly until I finally carved out my niche within the software development industry.
The Web has always been a source of fascination for me. The sheer convenience of accessing an app with a mere keystroke of a URL, sans any installation, never ceases to amaze me. My forte lies in unraveling abstractions and crafting scalable code that stands the test of time. I also relish the opportunity to explore and experiment with emerging technologies, keeping my skills sharp and staying at the cutting edge of innovation.
Like many developers, I'm a bit of a geek. I used to enjoy role-playing games and strategy games. I'm still a big fan of sci-fi series, space-related content, and I'm into Japanese culture, so I watch a lot of Eastern shows. I love writing. Nowadays, I do a lot of hiking and weightlifting. Nature, nutrition, health, and fitness are all part of my life.
