Since I was a child I had passion about IT and how computers work. After finishing secondary school I decide to take IT specific courses before going to university instead of the traditional high school in order to gain experience within the sector. Now I am studying a degree in telematics engineering (Networks and Internet Technologies) in La Salle BCN since networking is what passions me more about IT.
