Life updates

Its been a while since my last update here on my blog. Truth is that I’ve been distracted with other types of blogging but mainly I’ve been through major changes.

I don’t know if I wrote about it before, but I used to work for a web startup for restaurant searching in Monterrey. Micro managing there didn’t work for me, so I looked at other opportunities after 5 months of developing interesting stuff there.

Fortunately I got a call from Danilo Black. I’m happy to say that I’m working with Drupal and hope to be contributing some patches someday soon. Its been a great experience for me so far because I get to work with Basilio, a good friend of mine and I’ve been learning to work with a larger team.

Work on the twexter project has been progressing a lot these days, and we have already a nice demo to test. There’s still a lot of work to do on that interface but we’re getting there step by step. Its my first “open source project” I’ve contributed and curiously I’m the mantainer of the main code. I’d love some input from others but I think the tool needs to mature more to wake some interest for contributions. I just hope the tool will help kids and people in general to learn new languages easily. It can also be used as a nicer translation tool.

I’ll try to keep up my publishing and will try to publish more interesting stuff, and less personal life gossip.
