About me

Automate what you can, document what you can’t and have the wisdom to know the difference.

Hello, my name is Gerardo Santoveña. Along my life I have done all kind of activities: martial arts (aikido, karate, judo, taekwondo), played sports (baseball, soccer, basketball, tennis), computer programming (Basic oh yeah, I was 9 years old, FoxPro, Pascal, C, C++, C#, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, Scala, etc). But my passions can be summarized in linux, programming, baseball, and tennis. I love my wife Jecca and my baby son Isaac.
