About

Hi,
I am a venezuelan software engineer who wants to share in the web world feedback and detailed knowledge of the use of information technologies through some experiences I had in my career.

I studied in France a part of my career where I did my internship at a bank, and have since worked on several telecommunications companies / services in Venezuela as an employee and consultant.

I hope you find this blog interesting and usefull.
