Javier Arturo Rodriguez
Hello, I’m Javier and I build stuff. I am an Electronics Engineer turned systems administrator turned software architect but I’m a coder at my core. I teach whenever I can and learn a lot from my students along the way. I am really happy to be here because have worked with other DisCOnauts at the P2P Foundation and Guerrilla Translation and they are all generous, smart, hardworking people with big hearts.
What is your favorite magical, fictitious or mythological creature?
The Aluxo’ob, sprites of the forest in Mayan folklore, who guarded nature and played tricks in unsuspecting -or unrespectful- people.
Where would you time-travel, if it were possible?
15th century Florence, for sure!
What is your favorite smell and why?
Freshly-baked bread! My grandmother was a baker, so that brings back childhood memories.
If you could travel to any other planet (real or fictional), where would you go and why?
I hear Windhaven is beautiful this time of year.
Did you have an imaginary friend as a child?
What do you mean “as a child”?
