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

Python & Web enthusiast, author of gordon.run awslogs.com and gluecss.com.

This is what I do.


djangoPython.

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

phpAWS.

Amazed about how AWS leverages the needs of tech companies with their vast offer of services.

javascriptOps.

I really like dealing with Infrastructure. In love with immutable deployments and the docker ecosystem.

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.

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.

javascriptJavaScript.

After several years developing dynamic interfaces I've used most of the existing JS frameworks. My favourite these days: React

iosiOS.

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

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.
