Bragging about myself...
Hi!, I'm Israel, a Venezuelan Software Engineer living in Dubai with my wife and one cat and currently working
at dubizzle, the largest classifieds website in the region. I'm an
amateur musician and a programmer always looking for music or code projects.
I believe in technology bringing people together and making things easier, I'm a performance, usability and
productivity freak, always testing new techniques to write better code, improve user interfaces or become more
productive. I'm an
extroverted introvert, which means sometimes I talk to everyone and sometimes I just want to be alone.
I started this blog for a very selfish reason, to keep a log of cool findings, not-so-common errors and pitfalls I've found
so I can have the solution easier next time it happens, after that, I just thought it was OK to share some of my
thoughts here, like some kind of psychotherapy, you'll find here a lot of articles in Spanish because I write in both languages.
Aside from writing, I also try to read a lot, here's what I'm currently reading on .

What I've done...
Static website by request of a Kuwait based client called Menafile, they're the leading archive management service provider in the country. One of the main challenges was being able to reuse the same styling to provide right to left
support for Arabic. Design and corporate identity by Andrés Fermín
. Technologies: HTML, Bootstrap, jQuery, nginx.
Website donated to a Catholic organization called Cáritas, managed by Fr. Pedro Artigas in Trujillo, Venezuela. The main challenge for this project was to develop a scalable and reusable plugin for django-cms to manage the photo albums and handle the images uploads in an easy way. Technologies: django-cms, HTML, Bootstrap, jQuery, nginx.
Website donated to a Catholic society managed by Ms. Asmara Godoy in Jajó, Venezuela. The challenge was to find a tool to ease the development. Technologies: django-cms, HTML, Bootstrap, jQuery, nginx
Website for a Venezuelan family business, a Pastry and Bakery company called Carrillo Repostería, one of the best and most famous cakes in Caracas - Venezuela.
While I was building the websites I donated using django-cms, I realized there was no decent plugin for managing photo galleries, so, as a programmer, I built one. I'm working on improving it an packaging it to make it available on PyPI.
