Tell us a little about your background
I’m from a village located very close to Jaén, a city in the south of Spain and I’ve spent my whole life here; I hold a degree in Computer Sciences by the university of Jaén, I hold a PhD degree in Computer Sciences by the university of Jaén and I’ve worked for some years at the university of Jaén.
I’ve never worked on anything related to animals, but it’s something that has always interested and fascinated me. I’m quite pragmatic, and I’m not a vegetarian, I don’t belong to any organization for animal defense or anything like that, but I feel that in many cases animals live in dire conditions and I believe that humans are obligated to compensate them, but letting each one do it in the way he can best do it.
Under that belief I began to develop some time ago a platform from which I want to offer services for the care of animals. During these last months I’ve been interested more and more in DLT, and right now I dedicate all my time to this technology. DLT combines everything I like about computer science, distributed systems, cryptography, algorithms, networks, …, so it’s something I enjoy and what I feel comfortable.
I still feel that I’ve a lot to learn, but in the end, my interest is to apply DLTs to animal care and use them for issues such as veterinary health records, breed certificates or drug supply chain.
When and how was your first approach to IOTA?
I’ve developed for some years OSGi components for Eclipse RCP and RAP applications, so I’ve a general knowledge about Eclipse technologies. That’s why when I started with IoT technologies my decision on what technology stack to use was immediate, the Eclipse IoT stack. Eclipse IoT organizes each year a challenge to promote their tools and I thought it was a great opportunity to gain experience in the area;
