Ola! 👋

Picture of myself.

My name is André, pronounced as /anˈdɾe/. I’m a software developer who lives in Lugo, Galiza, Spain.

Work & Interests

I contribute to WordPress’s block editor as part of Automattic‘s Five for the Future division.

From 2011 to 2016, I created Geographical Information Systems at iCarto, where I was also a business lead and a partner. Previously, I worked at IGALIA (open-source consultancy, 2008-2010) and CartoLab (university research lab, 2007-2008 and 2010).

I co-founded the non-profits Makers Lugo (open hardware, 2013), Red Odiseus (WordPress network, 2010), and GHANDALF (free software, 2009). I also volunteered at ESF Galicia (international cooperation). In pre-pandemic times, I co-organized the WordPress Lugo meetup.

I’ve been published a dozen posts a year here for a while, and I don’t expect that frequency to change much.
