Alvaro is a professional React Native developer with an interest in mobile technology, server-side API development, and iOS development. He plays bass in a rock band, and he enjoys road bikes and politics.

The first thing he started programming was little buy scripts for Counter Strike. These were small hacks to buy faster and pick up all the necessary equipment. A few years later, he went to the University of Balearic Islands to study computer science. There he began to learn the fundamentals of computer programming using Ada, C, and Java. After finishing his B.Sc. in Computer Science, he started his M.Sc. That was when he started to do really fun things such as games in Lisp, creating a compiler of a subset of Ada instructions, and computer vision with OpenCV, among others.

Before finishing his M.Sc, he started to work full-time, first as a developer for the hotels team at Logitravel (the second tourism dot com in Spain) and currently as an iOS developer at mola.com. He had no previous iOS or mobile development experience before entering mola.com, but he successfully managed to develop both serverside and mobile apps for a social network called Hoods. He also helped the awesome team at Mola in several other projects (Matchball, Zoco).

Right now he is a mobile developer at APSL—Advanced Programming Solutions—and works on several products.
