Hi! I'm a backend developer from Girona, Catalonia.
I'm working at GNA Hotel Solutions to provide our clients the best backend code I can. I'm a developer for 8 years now. I started to learn with ASP.NET and Django, but I felt in love with Laravel at the first line of code and never looked back.
I'm constantly learning new stuff about programming styles and patterns. Mostly focused on the PHP world, but I'm doing some steps into the frontend too. I bought a few courses from Adam Wathan and Wes Bos. I also have a lifetime Laracasts subscription and can't be happier with all the content it has. There's always new content to learn.

I enjoy building web apps with Laravel and Vue.js. I used to develop API's at my previous job and totally loved it, but now I'm more into console commands and backends too.
I'm starting to experiment with some Vue.js apps, without any back-end code related.
I have contributed with small tweaks to the Laravel framework itself. I also own a few small packages focused to a Laravel application. At the company, I always try to find isolated pieces of code we can release as an Open Source package.
I discovered the world of chatbots a while ago and I'm building them with botman.io. I already have a few projects on my GitHub. I think it's a topic with a lot of potential for both private and commercial use.
I'm really disappointed by how Game of Thrones ended. I'm waiting for a new Altered Carbon season, and from Disney+ to be released here in Spain.
I love shows like Black Mirror, Electric Dreams, The Mand in The High Castle...
I read Artemis and The Martian by Andy Weir which I consider a masterpiece.
I enjoyed both books wrote by Ernest Cline, Ready Player One and Armada.
I've also read Song of Ice and Fire and all the stories about Sherlock Holmes
I'm planning to read The Man In The High Castle, since I enjoyed the TV show a lot. I'm a fan of The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I've also read Harry Potter books a tons of times and enjoyed Tales from Earthsea a lot.
I'm starting to read the Dune books and a collection of short stories by Isaac Asimov.
Recently I read Fahrenheit 451 and I totally love it.
I'm subscribed to a gym near work since October 2018. I try to go every single day in the morning (unless I'm traveling or something big happened). That's about 934 days!
I'm starting to feel great with myself and it's helping me with my back pain and mental health. In my opinion I think it's very important for all of us to do some exercise. Specially in our profession in which we spend almost 12 hours a day sitting down.
New tools are released quicker than I find projects to try them on. This is my current list of things I want to try but can't find the time / project for it 😅:
