Francisco Soto Ramblings about code, life and stuff.

About the author

Me!

My full name is Francisco Antonio Muñoz Soto, although I normally go by bobby or ebobby (long and weird story). I am years old. I am a software developer currently living in San Francisco, but I come from Hermosillo, Sonora., a very hot city (record is 48.5C, 119.3F) on the northwest side of Mexico.

I write software for fun and I make a living out of it, I love solving problems, trying new technologies and getting involved in technology/development communities. I also love reading, playing and listening to music, watching movies, playing video games and meeting people.

Currently I work as an engineer at Expensify where our goal is to make expenses reports that don't suck.

Previously I worked as an Engineering Manager at INgrooves, another San Francisco based company focused on media distribution and marketing services, where I did system, database and web programming on their end-to-end digital asset management platform.

I started playing with computers and programming when I was 15, I taught myself QuickBasic on a 386 in the interest of writing games and graphics demos, as I progressed I learned other programming languages including x86 assembler, I still keep the code for a game programming library I wrote called CosmoX. I've moved since then onto other languages and programming paradigms, like system, database, web, desktop, mobile and scientific programming.

You can find me on the following websites:

  • Stack Overflow - where I find answers to my questions and help by answering others.
  • GitHub - I share my code, where you can read it and improve it.
  • Twitter - Occasional status update and insight.
  • LinkedIn - my online professional profile.

The site is currently hosted on GitHub using the Pages feature, which gives me the advantage of having the site on a git repository, not having to use a database (making portability pretty easy), customize the layout and the appearance of the site and use my text editor of choice.
