About

Alejandro Piñeiro Iglesias talking, I was born at Vigo, but I lived at Coruña for several years, since I was almost 5 years old.

I always liked computer science, first because videogames (do you remember the Atari2600?) . Technically my first programming language was LOGO, but I don’t remember it at all. My first real programming language was Pascal, moving to C really quickly, all during high school. Later  I coursed computer science at FIC, and I became a Computer Science Engineer.

Currently I’m worker and partner of Igalia, working on different GNOME-related projects, mostly with the Accessibilit Team. My first public work was the ATK implementation for Clutter. This is the base of the accessibility support for GNOME Shell. Some years ago I became co-maintainer of ATK itself.

About hobbies, I play the bass guitar, being part of a band created with some of my faculty friends, called SiVE. In the past I was also member of the Coruña Municipal Music School jazz band, (example2011, example2010) and the indie pop-rock band Los Wattsons. With them I recorded the EP “Toma 1″ and the LP “Escandalo en Bohemia”.
