Latest content additions

posted Aug 17, 2015, 2:37 AM by Agustin Benito Bethencourt   [ updated Aug 17, 2015, 2:38 AM ]

I have added my professional background of the last few years. There are still links missing but I think the current content can provide a clear idea of what I've done and my responsibilities in my last 3 roles. The following step should be to add further links and to include information about my involvement in KDE.

I have also added a section about those books that have been important to me. You can add comments to that page and recommend further readings, for instance.

On the design part, I still have zero idea of what to do about it.
