My (real) name is Rafael Alvarez. I was born July 8, 1975 in Caracas, Venezuela.
I got a degree in Computer Engineering at Universidad Simón Bolívar (Caracas, Venezuela) with minors in Computer Language Theory (Focus on Virtual Machines and static optimizations like Partial Evaluation), Artificial Intelligence (focus on Planning and rule-based systems) and Benchmarking (focus on Web-based Applications)
According to the Jung-Myers-Briggs test, I'm a INTJ person. It describes me pretty well, so perhaps they're not that wrong.
I have been always passionate about programming: I see it more as a craft than as a science.
Over the years, I have taken several online tests for fun, you can see the results here
