I am a software engineer living in London, United Kingdom.
I seek excellence in everything I do. I share my passion for programming, ideas and practices, attention to detail, and self improvement with those around me. I treat programming like a craft, code cleanly, and continue to better myself all the time. Crafting a great product or service starts with a deep understanding of the business and the context around it.
I am constantly looking for better ways to develop software. I believe that continuous learning is a core skill everyone should have. I love developing software but I can not just be a programmer anymore. I am currently working on expanding my skill set to include product and user experiences, design, and other areas. To improve my craft, I need to understand the whole.
I explore new ideas rather than follow the established assumptions. I believe that every goal is achievable.
I love open source and I’m continually learning and working in personal projects. Check out my GitHub account to see what I have been hacking on lately.
I publish articles from time to time, you can see the complete articles archive.
I’m @ArturoHerrero at Twitter.
I wrote a book about Markdown with Packt Publishing: Instant Markdown.
Occasionally, I speak at conferences. See my talks page.
Reading is one of my passions. I keep a list of the books I read.
