About me[edit]

I'm Javier Ramírez, Software Engineer, Web Developer, Technical Instructor and Author of the book "Aptana RadRails: An IDE for Rails Development"[1] . I've held different positions throughout my career, but the ones I lately use are Software Architect and Web Consultant.

Originally from Zaragoza, I currently live in Madrid, Spain. During my career I've been located also in Barcelona, Milan and New York City.


I'm mainly interested in Web Development, business models based on the Internet, and the social changes in life as a result of going globally online.

I'm also interested in programming languages. I have used many languages in the past, but I'm a bit rusty in most of them. The ones which currently fall within my areas of expertise are Ruby (and Ruby on Rails), Java/J2EE, JavaScript, PHP and SQL. HTML and CSS are a part of that list too, although they are not strictly speaking programming languages.
