Juan M. Casillas
First of all,
is my CV brochure, in pdf format. Believe it or not, but I'm not a designer.
Well, as you can see in this page, I'm not a writer; I'm a CS engineer so write
my history is a complex task, at least for me. I born in Madrid, Spain, in the
year 1976. I like CS (yes, CS is Computer Science, at least for me) since I saw
one of these little black boxes?
Later, after to much BASIC and Tape Loading Errors
I studied my two degrees in CS. My Degree projects were: the implementation
of a device driver for the 3COM 3c509 board in
VSTa (Technical Degree) and
the implementation of the service discovery protocols
and the design of a metric system for them.
I think that CS is a matter of engineering, rather than art; but art usually
helps in CS (as you probably know). I build this web site in order to get all
my projects online (yes, I do some 'amateur' programming, as some guys says
in the interviews) and publish my own articles, thoughts and more.
After reading a while this site, you probably find lot of grammatical bugs.
Yes, my english sucks. So... why I write all this stuff in english? Its easy;
If I write in english, I forced myself to learn how to write propertly, that
is good. Also, if you do some programming, or if you read something about CS,
it's probably written in english, so to honor the tradition, I have to write
this site in english, too.
Currently, I'm working for the
Spanish's Institute of Meteorology
via FutureSpace. My main
taks at INM's are doing system administration, give some technnical
consultancy and deploy an administration and operation framework.
I have worked for the following
EresMas.com. In all of them, I have
developed system administration tasks. In my spare time, I give some
free consultancy to TodoInternet.com
for its main clients: LibertadDigital
and la Linterna.
My future plans usually vary; but I'm very interested on get a Ph
degree, but here in Spain is very difficult: the Ph degree isn't very
useful when looking for jobs, and the University doesn't help so much
(there are little (no) monetary helps, and is nearly impossible to work
and do the Ph at same time).
Also, I'm very interested on study the current 'administration' protocols
(e.g SNMP) and their limitations. I plan to create a new framework to
manage systems in a distributed, extensible way. I haven't so much time,
but for now, I think I will use
python as scripting language,
maybe XML-RPC as communication framework, and OO design for
the design of the model and components.
