My name is Fran. Currently, I’m working at New Relic, shaping the future of their 3rd-party integrations, and previously, I’ve worked as the Lead Engineer at Hitch. It was at this time when I started designing AsyncAPI, the machine-readable specification for message-driven APIs.
It’s been a long path since I started programming in the decade of 90s, with my first computer, a Sinclair ZX Spectrum. In the last years of the 90s decade, I started building websites, mostly for my friends and me. Since then, I have used lots of different technologies: C++, Java, PHP, Node.js, Apache, Nginx, Docker, to name a few.
During the last years, I’ve been working as a software engineer and architect, specialized in APIs and message-driven microservices architectures, helping companies scale their software infrastructure. I love to share/exchange knowledge speaking in conferences and contributing to open source.
Aside from software engineering, I love cats and have the luck to live with two (Kalea and Rua), together with my beautiful girlfriend Eva. I have a good sense of humor. There’s a 90% chance I’m laughing while you’re reading this.
I like to talk about software engineering, politics, and cats; so feel free to reach out to me if you have any question or simply want to share your thoughts.
