About me

My name is Carlos Pérez-Aradros Herce. I was born in Arnedo, a little town in La Rioja, Spain. Since I was a child I have always enjoyed problem solving, no matter what kind. I can remember myself playing with mechanics and electricity, from hammer and screwdrivers to K’Nex and small circuits. I got my first computer at the age of 11, that truncated my career as guitarist :P

In 2003 I moved to Zaragoza to course my Computer Science degree, which I really enjoyed, not only because of the classes but also all the time I passed learning new things, I discovered Free Software, Linux, programming, the Internet, the Web.

Currently I’m working at Elastic as Software Engineer in the Beats team. My interests and experience cover systems administration (Linux, networking, protocols, security), DevOps (AWS, GCloud, Docker, Kubernetes), and distributed systems development (Go, Python, asyncio, C++, Java).

Besides computing, I also enjoy amateur photography, I travel as much as I can and I love playing with new technology and gadgets. When I have time I also enjoy electronics, using hardware like Arduino and building stuff that flies.
