My personal story
Technology has been part of my life since I was a kid. I had my first PC at home when I was 5 years old (with Ms-DOS).
When I was 9, the police come to my house… they wanted me to help them fix the PC they had in their office, which I did.
At the age of 12 I tried to migrate all the articles from my Encarta 98 to a website I built using FrontPage (like Wikipedia but in 2002).
I experimented with everything you can imagine using the PC: music/audio editing, making movies, building animations and small games using Flash Player, made some websites with FrontPage and DreamWeaver, designed a card game in Corel, made some fun images with Photoshop to entertain family and friends, etc.
Professionally, I have worked in Hardware repair, Linux Servers and Data Networks, Software Development (Web, Desktop and Apps), but when I came to Product and Project Management I discovered that all my previous knowledge and experiences (which may have nothing in common) were useful. So working on Product is what I have enjoyed the most.
In 2022 I became the Co-Founder of Producto Beta, an Spanish Product Management community.
This is a project in collaboration with Alejandro Chávez (Mexico) that seeks to form a strong and diverse community to support and strengthen people who currently practice or wish to enter the world of Product Management.
