This is not me. I have a face, like with eyes and mouth and all that stuff.

Gonzalo García

Nice Programmer

Personal blurb

This is where I say I'm such a good programmer and a nice guy. Oh, also, I have some dreams or ambitions, I want to do some stuff, be something, reach some particular profesional position. Maybe somewhere I can use my expertise, my ability. Fluffly clouds and cute kittens. The truth is I'm probably an ok programmer and I am nice. But really, you only care about how cool my resume looks.

Stuff that sounds Professional

Frontend Developer at idealista.com

August 2013 - current

This is where I am now, so I better say it's great! And it is. No, really. I'm totally not saying it is great because I said I would but because it is. Right. Anyway, this is such a cool place. I do cool stuff all the time. Like the other day, when I did some sweet things with... quick, something that sounds cool... uhmmm... Grunt! Oh, yeah. Super-cool. Wait, wait! I got one even cooler: ClojureScript! Ha! Clojure on my resume sure makes it stand out, doesn't it? ah, let me just get this out of the way with some of those bolded keywords: JIRA, Agile, Scrum... Not meaning I like those, though. It's just there to grab your attention.

Sr Frontend Mindundi a.k.a. Programmer, at ATSistemas

April 2011 - July 2013

Well then, as a developer with lots of experience you'd imagine I'd include some bolded words such as Javascript, or even some framework/library names like jQuery or Backbone. This will surely grab some attention. Am I not so sure about mentioning some other stuff I've worked with, things like Dojo or PhoneGap, because they don't have that cool factor, but I can use HTML5 - very... 'en vogue'.

Super Cool Title... I mean Programmer, at Buongiorno

January 2010 - March 2011

So, I do a lot of stuff. I'll bold some more words: mentoring (which sounds really groovy) and training. In fact I do train people. And I also gather requirements and meet with clients and so on. But really, I'm a programmer, that's what I really do: software. I also fix a lot of other people's problems with software, but it comes down to the same: programming. Reading their code, finding the problem, fixing it. Sometimes they feel the need to call me architect because... I don't know why. I guess it's just that they think it sounds more grand or something.

Programmer, at Siemens Health Services

Blabla 2008 - Blabla Year

Will I just insert some buzzwords here? Like Object Oriented JavaScript, because OO always needs to be mentioned at least once, or User Experience (UX) which is a nice attention-grabber. I won't say anything about the horrid JS they had or the eye burner design of the application, of course.

Programmer, at Indra

October 2014 - December 2002

I was there for more than 6 years, so you can guess I did a lot of different stuff. Truth is it all boils down to... guess? Programming. Actually, I learned a lot here so I can put lots of keywords in this entry. Like Java, Struts, Spring, Javascript, AJAX... the whole lot. I could even mention SQL and UML... but I don't want to do UML ever again, so I'll leave that one unbolded.

Not Only Programmer, at SDRC

October 2004 - December 2006

Having an entry which is not only about programming allows me to skillfully place some extra keywords. I can insert stuff like Client Support or Reseach and Development, while avoiding to mention anything like sales or management. Oh, but I can and should mention Technical Leader of a group of 4 people because that always impresses.

Hey look at these words

  • Programming
  • More programming
  • Javascript
  • Java
  • HTML & CSS
  • Clojure & ClojureScript
  • Programming again
  • Lua
  • Git
  • Whatever

Education

Universidad Politécnica de Madrid

Electronics Engineer

So I got my masters degree as an Automation and Electronics Engineer but, really, do you care? I do, of course, even though it was more than fifteen years ago. But yeah, whatever, engineer.
