About

Hi, I'm Eduardo, I live in Miami Florida with my wife and my son. I'm an engineer by nature, I have been writing code for the last 15 years and working on the web using mostly Microsoft products.

Now I’m working in InteractionsIQ building Chatbots from existing IVRs for companies. 

I don’t have a very active online social media life (and I refuse to have one), but you can find me on LinkedIn. I started this blog to share tekes about programming, technology, computers, hobbies, bots, and other stuffs in a more durable, linkable, and reachable way.

Background

I got introduced to programming with BASIC in the mid 90s but didn’t know what I was doing. I got it with Pascal in 2000 and did a little of Delphi. My first website was in ASP around 1999-2000. I ran it in Personal Web Server on Windows 98, and used Access as database, I build it in FrontPage, it was local, nobody ever saw it, it was supposed to auction horses. Then I got forged in C++ right after and have been using C# and ASP.NET from 2003 to date.

I studied computer software engineer. I’m also an engineer by nature: I was born in a farm, working and breaking fixing things. My first successful project: a chess playing website for the University students community that we build on 2003 during my first year along with an awesome team, (will link to their blogs as they create them).

Worked 5 years for a Spokane based company. For two years I teach Programming 1 (How to Program, OOP, Java) to first year students. On 2009 I created my own software shop Xoftwee and worked with a couple of other very good developers, small team, great things. Later on 2011 created Vararent with my wife. Early 2014 I joined Careerscore to help them build the product and worked there for 2.5 years. 2016 I started InteractionsIQ. I try to be active and help in other projects as well.

and what’s a “teke”?

Good question. It’s a combination of the Spanish idiom “teque”’, which is a popular word to describe in an informal way someone giving a long (sometimes boring) speech, something like:

via GIPHY

but I used a 'K' to mimic 'tech'. So, think of a teke like a “teque or blahblahblah with an angle of technology or programming”. So, this is my teke.
