Hello! My name is Jorge Bastida and
I love writing code.

Python & Web enthusiast, author of gluecss.com and dajaxproject.com.

This is what I do.


djangoPython.

Simplicity, elegance, power and extreme flexibility... no words to describe my passion for this beautiful language.

pythonDjango.

I love Django, It's an amazing framework and I do enjoy it. I've developed several opensource projects and given a few courses.

javascriptOps.

I really like dealing with servers. Some of the tools I like, nginx, Varnish, HAProxy, Graphite and PostgreSQL. My provisioner, Puppet.

geoOpen Source.

Share with the community as much as possible has been always a priority for me. Visit my github page to check my latest contributions.

htmlHtml.

I love the web. I got an html book about ten years ago and since then I've developed for the Web both professionally and as a hobby.

javascriptJavaScript.

After several years developing dynamic interfaces I've used most of the existing JS frameworks. My favourite? jQuery.

iosiOS.

I've developed several iPhone apps using as backend my own RESTful APIs. I really like it, so interesting platform!

phpPHP.

Everyone has a past. Mine is PHP, one of the first languages that I learned. Since then we have kept a close relationship.
