Biography for Gastón Charkiewicz

Briefly about me

I'm a software developer and student from Argentina. I'm always looking for continuous improvement. I like challenges.

About my study

I'm finishing my undergraduate studies program of Technician in Software Programming (Técnico en Programación Informática -TPI- in Spanish) in Universidad Nacional de Quilmes (Buenos Aires, Argentina) and I am taking courses of the university diploma of Licenciature of Software Development (Licenciatura en Desarrollo de Software -in Spanish) in the same University. 

My interests

Everything related to digital television. Object-Oriented Paradigm, Functional Programming, GNU/Linux, Open Source, teaching, Arduino, and to be creative mixing all this stuff.

My non-Smalltalk experiences so far

I've been working extending the functionality of a datacasting digital television server, adding easy Editing Commands support (generation, modification, transmission). Worked in this with Python, Django, C++, NCL, Lua, Boost and GNU/Linux.

I played with Haskell (UIs, monadic NoSQL persistence, Operative Systems design), Java, Scala, Hibernate, Wicket and Spring.

My Smalltalk experiences so far

I started using Visualworks Smalltalk in 2009 at the University. I began to use Seaside in 2011 and to be teaching assistant (we use Pharo to teach OOP).

Why am I interested in Smalltalk?

Because is strictly close to Object Oriented Paradigm concepts.

It's nice to code in Smalltalk.

The live object environment it's AWESOME.

Will I stay with Smalltalk after the project is finished?
