So here it goes:
My name is Alberto and I'm from Galicia (Northwestern Spain).
I've been interested in computers since my early teens. At university
I discovered GNU/Linux, and quickly became passionate about
it. Immediately after finishing my studies I co-founded Igalia with
some friends, with free software as one of the core ideas.
Initially I was more of a sysadmin but I've been working as a
developer for quite a few years already. Apart from some patches to
GNOME here and there, most of my work in the past years has been
around Maemo/MeeGo, where among other things I was developing and

I've also been involved in some training sessions (helping people to
