Three sides of the same coin

My name is Alberto Nieto, I am an experienced full stack developer that loves coding websites in PHP.

I have completed studies in Computer Science and Philosophy, and I am currently finishing a Master in Political Science.

On my free time, I am involved in several sociopolitical iniciatives.

I'm Alberto, student, programmer and activist

Academia

I studied Philosophy at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. I am finishing an MSc on Politics and Democracy at the National Distance Education University. My research interests focus on political philosophy and on the analysis of ideology and discourse in liquid modern societies.

Programming

I graduated as Senior Technician in Networks & Computer Systems Management at Open Institute of Catalonia. I work as a web developer for a creative leadership school in Amsterdam. The technologies I work with are PHP object-oriented, MySQL, JavaScript-jQuery and HTML5-CSS3.

Activism

I am co-founder and coordinator of the Expat Solidarity Network in the Netherlands, elected member of the Spanish Residents Council in the Netherlands, member of the Validating Council at DiEM25 and socio-political analyst on Latin American social transformation initiatives at XminY.

Educate yourselves because we'll need all your intelligence.

Stir yourselves because we'll need all your enthusiasm.

Organize yourselves because we'll need all your strength.

Skills

These are the three pillars on which my technical skills are supported.

Programming

I've been programming in PHP for over 4 years (Laravel, Wordpress, Moodle). I have solid knowledge in MySQL. My favorite version control system is Git, although I've also worked with SVN.

I'm a fan of the Agile methodology.
