Hi there! My name is Álex. I am an IT guy with passion on development and nowadays in infrastructure as well since Docker, Kubernetes and others happened.
On my day to day job I work as team lead at BBVA, a big spanish bank with presence in several countries, where we are trying to create a PAAS that other employees can use to deploy their beautiful applications. I work remotely from Milán so if you want to buy me an Spritz I am up to it 🤣.
Before Milán, I have been living in Madrid where I moved to work as software architect for jobandtalent.com. I moved to Madrid in October 2015 after expending some years in London (UK) and in Groningen (NL).
While I was in London I worked in Shopa & GreenManGaming but you can find more info about that on my LinkedIn profile. Before moving to Madrid I was working as contractor with Jetstack doing this PR for Kubernetes, it’s the Flocker plugin for k8s.
As you have probably deducted my background is mainly technical, but I got interested by business at the beginning of my career so I started my own company in Spain which was a completely economic disaster but I learned a lot & I studied a MSc in Electronic Commerce too hoping that it would be handy in the future. TL;DR; I don’t think it was (yet).
As a FLOSS passionate I think that sharing is caring, this is why I try to share things that I think can be interesting for the community. I try to write in this blog from time to time mainly for two reasons: keep improving my English & organise my ideas in a meaningful format.
