Hi, I'm Javier Julio, @javierjulio on Twitter. I'm a software engineer and speaker living in Brooklyn, New York developing rich applications for the web at 9mmedia in the trendy Soho neighborhood of Manhattan.
I'm a full stack developer with a focus on the front end where I stress the details of bringing rich interfaces to life. I love what I do. If my focus moves from one stack to another, on my free time I focus on the other. I've been working with Ruby and Rails lately and have been enjoying it immensely. I've dabbled a bit in Node.js but Ruby has been my priority server side. You can see my progression, notes, and other projects on GitHub. Despite being a software guy I'm learning to hack on hardware.
Apart from programming, I'm an avid reader and use Instapaper to read what I come across on Feedly (through Reeder) or Twitter. I love everything soccer. During the week I dance tango and milonga. Thanks to my mother, I love to cook but not just for myself, for my family and friends most of all. Occasionally I play paintball. When all else fails its hard to beat an easy night on the couch watching Netflix. Sometimes you can find me gaming on PlayStation and Steam as jjfutbol.
