My name is Francisco Alvarez and I launched this blog in 2016 as a New Year’s resolution. This is a place to talk about my experience as a software developer. Some posts describe real cases whereas others are just the result of me playing around with different languages/frameworks.
Getting myself to write about my experiences has proven to be an effective way to reinforce what I learn as it requires from me to be more rigorous and gives me time to think carefully about the new stuff.
As many other people, when I come across a new concept the first thing I try to do is visualise it and “touch” it. This blog is my way of doing so.
I have worked in software engineering for over 15 years developing e-commerce and management information systems based on Java and Scala technologies.
