ANDREID

Andreid is the software engineering soul of Paranoid Android. He takes his first steps into computer programming when still a kid with a Commodore 64, guided by his father, and then comes back to computer world during his late teen age, thanks to GNU / Linux and the Open Source world (recently returned to his beloved Debian after a not so exciting experience with Ubuntu).

He first meets Android world while working on a joint project between his University and an important company of the region. Fascinated by developers community (his first question on a programmer’s website was answered by a Google engineer!), common in Open Source environments, in a couple of months he knows enough to decide, with his friend, to get involved in first person.

Andreid brings in Paranoid Android his rigorous design and programming style, reflecting in efficient, safe and reliable products on the technical side. Moreover, thanks to his interest in User Centered Design, he tries to make them simple and effective for the end user. Also, his confidence with the English language helps with the translations when needed.

In addition to Android, he can count on a period of interest in web programming with PHP 5 and Javascript / AJAX, and a never satisfied will to learn new things.

In his spare time, in winter he prefers working on the computer until late or reading some book (from novels to technical writings), but as soon as weather allows him, he gets out in the wild and dedicates himself to his passion for mountains, trekking and mountain bike.
