I learned about Igalia from some friends who were working at the company. I joined the Igalia team in June 2008.

I like to say: “I am thrilled to be here: that was sooner than I would ever expect!” Being a self-taught GNU/Linux user and C programmer was the main reason which made me study computer science: I discovered that it was possible to gain control over the electron beams flowing inside computers.

After checking a number of programming languages — and becoming a “language lawyer” — some day I discovered Python, and immediately became addicted to it. I also enjoy understanding how operating systems work: this is how I entered the world of security.
