About

Antonio J. García Lagar.

I'm the IT guy in a SMB: CTO, Web developer, System Administrator, Network Administrator, Manual Reader, etc. Some call it DevOps.

Architect.

I came to Madrid in 1997 to study Architecture in the Superior Technical School of Architecture of Madrid. To work on my CAD exercises, my parents bought me my first computer, and I had to reinstall the OS Windows 95 three times in a week.

In 1998 I got a Mandrake Linux CD, and I had to compile the kernel to solve some issues with the installation without knowing the meaning of compile or kernel: it was my first contact with the Free Software world.

In 2001, to pay for my studies, I started to work in an IT company where I still work, and where I had the opportunity to follow my self-taught career, always reading and learning.

Web Architect.

In 2004, after some years interested in Sysadmin tasks, I read my first programming book (about Modula2), where I discovered a new passion: the Software Development.

In 2005, we completely rewrote our main app with a LAPP architecture, and during this process became a Web Developer, with PHP as my main programming language.

After finishing my studies of Architecture, I opted to continue my career in the IT world.

And I'm still here; reading, learning and enjoying every day with my self-taught learning, with the help of lot of people that share their knowing selflessly through the net.
