David's avatar

I’m David Tavarez, but I prefer people to call me just “David”. I’ve been coding since I was 12 years old and people usually think that I am a geek or something but I’m not, it’s just I like to learn (as much as I can) how things are done and how much I can improve them.

When I was 15 I was doing web applications and I was in love of this cute girl in my class, so I decided to hack the local newsletter webpage and add an article saying that I loved her. It was really easy, the user and password were just there visible by everyone but she thought I was smart and cute. Since then I was aware of how important is Security.

Now, I help business to achieve their goals through Software. I’m really passionate about Community and Technology, I’m an Open Source advocate since I meet Mandrake 8. I’m not really tight to a programming language, since I can code in Python, C#, PHP, Java, Javascript and C.

When I’m not writing code, you can find me playing basketball, traveling with friends and family or doing political activism. I truly believe that people together can create a better world every day.
