The brains of the operation. The brains of some operation, certainly. Or at least, presumably, the brains of some operation. Maybe.
I’m not actually the brains of the operation, but I like to think I at least pull my weight. I have a habit of coming up with ideas, and somehow convincing Michael that he should join me (often via sheer stubbornness).
I’m originally from Uruguay, moved to Wisconsin in my early teenage years, where I like to think I gained some “Sconnie”-ness, if only just by contact. I studied Physics at the University of Chicago, where I first started getting into programming. I then moved to Colorado where I started working as a Software Engineer at the Oracle Data Cloud (née Datalogix). A few months after Michael made the switch to zvelo and Go, my interest was piqued, and I decided to see what all the fuss was about. Since joining the team there, I’ve become addicted to tackling problems in distributed systems with Go (particularly dealing with concurrency, which may hint at some underlying masochism).
I’m currently interested in playing around with distributed databases and hash tables, and trying out a few more Data Science-y projects. That said, I’m often trying to do too many things at the same time for my own good.
