Collaboration is the key message with Luis. A leader in the open source community, Luis loves to bring people together to do extraordinary things. As an advocate of Behavior Driven Development, he believes that business and technology should work closely together in order to identify real value.
Luis is the maintainer of the One-Click Ruby Installer, for which he won ‘The Ruby Hero’ award in 2010. And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, he’s also one of five engineers in the Americas—from North to South—who have access and commit permission to the Ruby source code.
Before joining AREA 17, Luis ran a technical consulting company specializing in software and hardware solutions for the video broadcasting industry. The high demands of that industry coupled with the need for non-stop service developed his “acquired taste” for sustainable systems.
Luis is a native of Tucumán, Argentina and studied Computer Science at the University of Tucumán. He splits his time between Tucumán and Paris with the occasional sejour in New York City.
