meHi there! I’m a software engineer at work hours, a math teacher some afternoons and a mountain lover whenever I can leave it all behind (less than I’d like to btw). I currently live in Berga, a small city on the Catalonian Pyrenees. I like all the things related to new technologies, I like learning something new everyday, I absolutely love being challenged about programming and I adore getting caught in the rain.

I studied at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya where I got a bachelor degree in Informatics Engineering and a master’s degree in computing. At the same time I was part of the Moving research group specialized in modeling, visualization, interaction and virtual reality. Later we founded our little business, Alter Sport, where we develop all kind of software related to sport in addition to managing a sport center in Berga, Alter Sport Gim and one in Moià, Moià Sport.

Although I studied Informatics Engineering because I loved everything related to virtual reality and videogames I discovered, while working at the Moving research group, that I loved having input on the thought processes that defined the software we made. Unfortunately I couldn’t give much input because a lot of the projects we worked on there were already completely defined. This made the idea of founding our own business, where we could define what we made and how we made it, more attractive. After 3 years giving all I can to Alter Sport where we are developing Alter Fitness, a cloud-based suite to manage sport centers, and Move the city, a web and mobile app platform to promote healthy lifestyles of a city’s inhabitants and it’s tourism, I decided, as a new year’s resolution, that 2015 is the year I get in shape regarding rendering technologies and virtual reality again. This blog is a pet project to give feedback on the progress I’m making at doing so and a place to write down the things I’m learning every day.

And now that you know who I am and why this blog exists, take your time, give it a read and leave me a comment if you like it!

Ai, Barcelona…

Recordar les estones als teus peus, la olor a mar, el soroll de l’espuma colant-se entre l’espigó, els silencis còmplices, la tinta que transformava en mots els meus pensaments i els grafittis de la única paret que hi havia. Recordar les tardes de passeig, de desconnexió, de lectura i de pausar el món. Les tardes de trobar-me, les tardes de mi.

Observar quin munt de coses diferents hi ha mentre esquives gent trajada amb acreditacions i penses què bo ha de ser descobrir-la per primera vegada. Pensar que no només ella ha canviat, que tu també ho has fet, que us heu fet grans. Canviats, però sempre l’un de l’altre. Canviats però eterns. Pensar què trist és que la gent se la perdi, capcota, enganxada a les seves pantalles. Pensar què els hi ha de passar pel cap per passejar-se sense el somriure posat. Creure-ho impossible.

Recordar quin munt d’accents diferents hi pots trobar, el contrast d’olors, la barreja del soroll de cotxes i les notes que s’escapen de la guitarra d’un músic mentre canta el “Don’t worry be happy” ajudat per un parell de turistes i les seves cerveses.

Recordar. Recordar i enyorar. Recordar i somriure. Somriure perquè saps que, malgrat passin els anys, sempre et serà casa. I somriure, sobretot, somriure. Amb aquella pau que t’omple el dins quan et sents a lloc.
