Specific Skills

Programming Languages

These are all the languages that at some point I've used, some of them I don't even remember them :).

  • C, the father of all the languages :)
  • Python, excelent high level scripting language
  • Pascal, a nice language to learn
  • Perl a really good scripting language for file processing
  • Pl/pgSQL the procedural programming language of PostgreSQL
  • Java, I've done just the basics with this one, only the neccessary to maintain a webapp


I've worked heavily with Amazon Web Services technologies, specially with the following services:

  • EC2
  • S3
  • RDS (mysql)
  • CloudWatch to gather stats about my compute cluster instances and post processing it to analyze CPU usage.
  • CloudFormation to deploy a complete stack using EC2, Route53, RDS and other services.

Also I've submitted patches to OpenStack, specifically to Swift and jenkins-job-builder, you can see my list of contributions in Gerrit
