In my spare time I like to
I am interested in new technologies. Regularly I try to keep contact with new advances in the areas of web and computer services which are intended to the professional world or the public.
I like learning new tricks on programming by writing some programs or by reading specialized books. My favorite social network is Github. I love building stuff from scratch and I contribute to free software, mainly Django-related libraries.
I have a so varied taste in music that I think I could listen to music for days! I have a lot of playlists on Spotify, really. I have also played the guitar since I was 10 years old. I try to cover many musical styles: classical, jazz, rock, blues, etc.
I love reading. I read all kinds of novels (thrillers, detective stories, fantasy books) and I read books specialized in computers or networks.
I love travelling and discovering new things : new people, other cultures, different habits... Spain, England, Canada, United States or Scotland are some of the places where I travelled.
