Well, I ask as my 7-year-old son asks me: Is this really OBLIGATORY?
So, guessing the answer is YES... I will introduce myself.
But since I distilled myself some time ago...
I will post my StackOverflow profile info and explain it.
This is going to take long, do not complain... It was obligatory...
Here it goes:
I am someone who
cares for family
thrives with programming
feel passion for music
is in love with graphics
and like sports.
@Just love ;-)!
So, time for an explanation.
First and foremost, I enjoy life in all its ways and I love nature and its beauty.
Second, I care for my family, fathers, sister, wife, son & daughter, cousins, uncles & aunts, neighbors... the list is endless as the world is a BIG family.
Third, I thrive with programming, since I started learning it when I was about 10 years old, and keep doing it for my work and hobby.
Fourth, music is my passion since I was young. I learnt to play the recorder, then I learn to play guitar and last years piano. Currently learning Ukelele, and well, singing. I am not a virtuoso, but can sing and play songs. I plan to release a music album in the coming years.
Fifth, I am in love with graphics, because it is kind of my lost love. I played and loved video games since the end of seventies and eighties. I am from the Pong, Galaxian, Pac-man, Atari 2600 era. I learned Z80 when I was 16, in order to learn to code them. I watched the first Pixar shorts like André and Wally B and Luxo Jr. and other 3D animation work in the late night avant-garde TV programs in Spain.
Later I learned some 3D Studio 4, Max, Blender and some other digital paint, video and compositing programs like Photoshop, Combustion, Final Cut and made some small and humble works. Though I never did video games or 3D movies professionally.
Sixth, I like to practice many sports. I have practiced and played soccer (the national sport in Spain), tennis, running, swimming, gymnastics, rugby... Though lately I only practice swimming, some light-workout/stretching-yoga and tennis.
Well, that is enough! Isn't it?
Well not yet... I told you not to complain... as you marked it as obligatory...
I currently work for a Telecom multinational company.
Though I have worked for other Telecom companies and in the IT/Software industry.
I have worked mostly for telecom products (switching systems, gateways, routers), though I also did some work for a railway system, IT software and lately M2M and IoT stuff.
BTW, I am an Emacs fan and if you have never tried it, you should. I will just say: org-mode.
Next to the last words... What am I doing here?
Well, a promotion of a Seeed L3D Cube (8x8x8 Full Color Kit) that came to my Inbox through a Massdrop mail brought me here.
So, what's next?
Who knows... May be this is the path to join my lost love with my thrive with programming.
I have seen here some people doing video games and VR/AR stuff that is of my taste.
Or may be I could order one of the L3D Cubes or may be the HoloPlayer One.
