Nicolás A. Ortega,
Software Developer

I am a long time GNU/Linux user, mostly using Debian GNU/Linux. Although I've used other distros before I've found Debian to be most comfortable.

In programming I tend to enjoy working at a low-level, for that reason I tend to work in C or C++ and play around with x86_64 assembly code every now and then. I've also been getting more interested in low-level security and development, such as development in the Linux Kernel and drivers as well as reverse engineering binaries using the GNU Debugger. I also have a ringzer0team.com profile where you can see the flags I've managed to find. This interest has lead me to learn libraries such as OpenMP in order to improve the efficiency of my programs and take advantage of the full processing power of the computers I use.

I am fluent/native in both English and Spanish having lived in the US and Spain. However, I am not satisfied with only two. Currently I am learning Japanese (日本語), but I plan to learn more after having a decent amount of fluency in Japanese. そして、日本語を自由に話してスペイン語か英語を練習したいなら、Contactページから僕のE-Mailにメッセージを送ってください。

Although I am mostly interested in programming and technology in general, and I am very political in these areas (in terms of privacy, Free Software, net neutrality, etc.), I also have very strong political beliefs outside of technology. However, as I have seen the condition of the politics of our nations rapidly decay I have lost much interest to get involved, but I still maintain my strong opinions.
