Hey there, I'm the guy behind the
BGM pseudonym. I see you've found my about me page,
so I guess this is where I tell you a bit more about myself! I like classic-styled websites,
so I hope you enjoy reading!
Like you've probably read around my site, I'm a software developer! I'm Chilean, 22 years old, and I've been programming since I was like 16-17 maybe? Can't quite remember honestly.
I'm the kind of developer who actually reads the manuals, one who likes to get a complete understanding of the tools he's using, and also the kind that truly enjoys the stuff he does. I pick my tools wisely, and I stick to them for as long as possible! There are no better frameworks or applications than the ones you don't have to replace (at least not often haha).
I voluntarily help translate and proofread a few languages for the popular game Minecraft, purely as a hobby since 2017. I’ve played the game for many, many years, and I guess you could call Minecraft itself one of my hobbies too. If you're Chilean and you've played Minecraft in Spanish before, guess where "Marraqueta" came from!
Then you've got Re-Volt, the game from my childhood I somehow ended up working on... yeah. You must be starting to see a pattern here. Whenever I like something, I tend to get really involved. I could go on, but I think you've got the idea.
In 2023, I was accepted by GitHub to become a GitHub Campus Expert for my University. In short, GitHub Campus Experts are local leaders at their campus from all over the world who promote software development, open source initiatives and technology by organising activities, events, workshops, seminars, etc.
I, alongside many of my very talented classmates, administrate and manage our very own community at campus: Open Source UBB. We organise events on various topics related to software development open to all of our campus, regardless of major. You may find some pictures below!
