Projects

Here is a list of Open Source projects I've been working on privately

  • Spain's petrol stations' prices

    An intent to make official spanish petrol stations' price data more usable, and showcase its usage with a simple webapp.

  • regadata - open data for regatta

    I'm fond of sailing. In 2012 while following the Vendée Globe, I got frustrated by the official rankings only available in closed Excel format. So I decided to open up those data and make them available in an accesible and responsive webapp.

  • sportandbar.es

    I founded and ran the Spanish version of allomatch.com, a site which links TV sports programs with an extensive directory of bars.

  • sportgossip

    This is a personal project which pretends to extend Twitters' lists functionality. It is a database of official athletes' twitter accounts grouped in several manageable categories.

  • php-redmine-api

    A simple PHP Redmine API client, Object Oriented.
