Professional Software Developer

Hi there, wellcome to website!

I'm a professional software developer who works on compilers, IDEs, and web-based solutions for investment banks and international trading companies.

I code mostly in C, C#, Ruby and JavaScript.

About me

I'm a software developer who has been working with computers from the past half of his life. I work at a software development company in Argentina, where I design and implement compilers, IDEs, and web-based solutions for investment banks and international trading companies. I'm a polyglot programmer who works mostly in C, C#, Ruby, and JavaScript.

On my spare time, I like to read, code, and learn new stuff. I also play the guitar and travel with my family as much as I can.

I live in Buenos Aires with my wife and beautiful son.

From time to time, I publish brief programming articles on my blog.

I wrote "Data structures from scratch." A brisk introduction to essential, advanced, and persistent data structures using the Ruby programming language.

In addition to my daytime job, I partnered with high school friends to create Simplemente Web, a web development shop that provides web-based solutions to small and mid-sized businesses.

How to create MS Word documents from Office templates using C#

The OpenXML SDK allows you to do pretty much anything you want with office files such as Excel, Word, etc… While many people like this library, I found it complex, unintuitive and poorly documented, not to mention the awful xml format that uses under the hood to represent the documents, styles, etc.
