About

Cartophilic geek, book junkie, music lover, free software and culture running through my veins, everyday photographer, twitter addicted, beer admirer, apprentice of everything and master of nothing From my pinterest page

Well, I'm Jorge Sanz and I'm from Valencia, Spain and I live in Aldaia , near the city. I work at Prodevelop as a Geospatial Consultant where I help my colleagues to build great geographical applications and systems. I studied Surveying first, and afterwards Cartography and Geodesy, so my background is highly focused on Earth sciences, but as I love computers and programming, I ended up working with Geographical Information Systems. I work for web and desktop systems doing a little bit of everything: developing on HTML/JS/Java/Python/etc, doing some system administration, documenting, training, helping on bids, whatever.

I'm a truly supporter of free software and culture so I try to develop all my professional activities on that arena, volunteering at the OSGeo Foundation at any level, helping to manage some foundation systems, supporting the OSGeo Spanish Language Local Chapter and promoting at local level at our Geoinquietos group.

Finally I really enjoy reading a good novel, go to the cinema, swimming alone at the pool or going to the country for short walks.

Blogging

I love to write, mostly in Spanish but also in English for technical stuff. Lastly I haven't hade too much energy to write at my blogs but I do my best and try to post in all of them from time to time.

Please, if you find something interesting leave a comment and you will make me happy.

Social

I'm a twitter addicted so that's my primary social media network. I post some of my twitter content to facebook and I use it mainly to interact with my friends and family. I'm also using from time to time Google +, mainly to post interesting links. I use Pinboard to collect my bookmarks and Anobii to track the books I'm reading.

follow me! @xurxosanz

Media

I'm not at all an skilled photographer. But I post on flickr almost everyday photographs about what happens around me so my shots reflect where I am, and what I'm doing. Since last year I almost everyday post a photograph at 8:36pm, an idea I got from Buster Benson. Finally after some time without scrobbling, I'm using again LastFM to track what I'm listening and some tunes I enjoy.

My last favorites at LastFM

Apart from that, I'm sparely uploading short videos on Youtube, mostly screencasts that help me explain something to someone.
