Welcome to my website. 

This is my little corner of the internet, and of course I try to keep it nice and quiet. I have some of my work display here, but since my hosting is limited, I try to keep it as lean as posible. Enjoy your visit!

Now a little bit about me

If you scroll until here, it’s because you want to know a little bit more about me, Javier Diaz (J.D.). So here is a bit of my story.

I come from a little Spanish town called Avila, famous for its magnificent medieval wall and many catholic churches. Although Avila is a wonderful place to grow up in, once I graduated the high school, I felt that my future was somewhere else, where I can pursue a career in science. The obvious choice was to move to the capital, where I was accepted at the Complutense University of Madrid and after a few years obtained a degree in Chemical Science, with focus on Material Science.

On the last year, I joined the course of Computational Chemistry, where I met my first programming language, MATLAB. I got fascinated by the amount of liberty a mathematical oriented programming language offered to develop your ideas and projects. This first contact make me start looking at computer programming with new eyes but when I finish my degree, I started looking for a job related to it.

Nevertheless all my plans where crashed by the economical crisis on Spain. To improve my English and earn enough money to continue my growth as a scientist and developer, I decided to emigrate to Norway and I started working in a hotel near Tromsø. Soon after moving there I met my girlfriend, a born traveller, who imbued me with the travel bug.

A year later, we decide to give a chance to become remote workers. We moved to Trondheim and we started to focus on building our brand, Inspired By Travel. And while I studied web development, JavaScript,  video and photography edition, my girlfriend focus on SEO, social networking and copy writing.

Then an opportunity for an internship arrived. I join the team of developers at Indeon (wpserved.com) where I apply all my up-to-date knowledge on JavaScript, and learn new technologies, like Node.js, Vue.js and Google Firebase.

And now, I am ready to move to the next step, and be a developer. Been able to work wherever and whenever. That's the dream and that's what this page is here for, to prove my skills.
