Developer and writer


Long story short.


I'm Damián, self made developer. I sold my first website at age 16 and never stopped doing web stuff ever since.

Development is the fastest way to create things and share them to the world. I was focus on this for years and I dropout of college to follow my own path as freelancer.

I encountered Ruby around 2010 and started doing Ruby on Rails development for client in 2011. On the technical side, most of my time was spend doing projects in Ruby, PostgreSQL, Redis, Memcached, Heroku, JavaScript and Sass. I also shipped some iOS apps (Objective-C and React Native).

I co-organised the Bordeaux Ruby Meetup for years and taught Ruby at IngéSup. I used to be present at various Startup Weekends as co-organiser, mentor, or participant.

In 2013, I co-founded Geeksters, an innovation agency doing web and mobile development for startups and large companies. I spent two years in Morocco recruiting and training a team of fantastic developers. We were specialised in Ruby, Android, and iOS development. My principal role was to teach best practices regarding development, picking the right technologies and execute critical tasks on client projects.

Today, I'm working as an Independent Consultant and I split my time between client work and personal projects.
