    I'm a fan of high-level programming and development, specially high-level low-level programming. Learnt Smalltalk around 10 years ago and never came back. I've been working at Disarmista for 3 years, where I've been in charge of the development of Bee self-hosted VM with Gera Richarte and Javi Burroni. At the university, I teach about computer architectures, assembly and operating system programming.
