Roberto Álvarez Ceballos

Hello, my name is Roberto Álvarez Ceballos. Since I was a kid I've been always passionate about computers. I got my degree in Computer Engineering in the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and since then I haven't stopped working on the things I really enjoy.

I'm a passionate Android developer, but what I really enjoy is solving problems through software development. I'm always looking for new challenges where I can prove and improve my skills as wells as discover and learn new technologies.
