While I was away

I am really sorry that this huge span of time since my last post.

In this last two years lots of things happened.
I started 2015 working as an iOS developer in a medium-sized company in Palermo, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

In late 2015 I moved to Zurich, Switzerland where I joined Google in YouTube Shopping, VideoAds. I mostly worked on pipelines (parallel data processing), backend/serving, experiments, data analysis. I spent a little bit more than one year in Zurich (chocolate, sports outdoor, hiking, cold, too quiet, Sundays everything closes).

Lot’s of things happened in the middle:
  • I mentored in a Hackathon for the first time.
  • I gave my first public tech talk representing Google, and then I gave four more in Universities in Europe and Argentina, and even in a High School in USA.
  • I visited my dog in Argentina several times, because, why not? đŸ¶

In late 2016 I moved to NYC, where I am right now writing this. I am still in Google, now switched to something more tangible. I am doing iOS development again, this time in Google Docs, specifically in Slides for iPhones. I not only switched teams, but also PAs (from Ads to Apps).

NYC so far seems like an interesting place (hamburgers, English, colder, hi officer). And lot’s of opportunities and challenges to deal with!

What will happen next? I certainly have no idea, but I will start with đŸ¶đŸ‡ŠđŸ‡·.
