Speaker Info

If you would like me to speak at your event, seminar or conference, you may shoot me an email to jose@bgm.dev. Make sure to include as many details about the event as possible! I also love collaborating with workshops and other kinds of experiences related to software development and technology, so feel free to write to me about those as well!


I'm José Benavente, the software developer behind the “BGM” pseudonym. I'm a recent graduate of Execution Engineering in Computing and Informatics, and a very passionate teacher. I work on a series of voluntary initiatives which range from building and leading technical communities, to low level software development contributing to a video game called Re-Volt, from 1999. I'm currently also a part-time teacher at the University of the Bío-Bío.

I love translating software, reading technical books, calligraphy, fountain pens, and racing games!
