Since I left University I´ve been working for great companies and projects and music bands that changed my life.

First I worked at the University of Alicante as a researcher, were we developed internal tools and web services for a digital library, as well as its test automation (everything done in Java).

I worked as a software developer engineer in test for Microsoft Ireland developing the test cases and test tools for the Mobile Advertisement Platform, which was a web service (we used visual studio and .NET technologies, C#).

I am currently a GUI developer and tester at skillpages.com, a next-generation social network for finding people with skills. We use here ASP.NET MVC, C#, Javascript, CSS and HTML. For testing the UI we use Visual Studio Team Suite with Selenium.

I also had C++ as my main programming language at university, which I loved. My end of degree project was done in C/C++ and it had more than 20k lines of code.

I would love to work in the music industry someday.
