Overview

My name is Álvaro and Custom Solvers 2.0 is just my nickname at work (I also use varocarbas). During over the last 7 years, I have been full-time working as a programmer and numerical modeller on a wide variety of projects. Note that I am a Spaniard (currently living in Spain), but have been professionally using English for quite a long time already (more than 9 years).

Service Description

I have a solid background in mathematics, physics and (mechanical and energy-related) engineering. While programming, I specialise in creating data-intensive efficient algorithms completely from scratch. Most of my experience is focused on (Windows) desktop-based implementations, but I have also participated in quite a few web-based projects.

Type of projects in which I am mostly interested:
- Custom desktop- and web-based applications accounting for a wide variety of needs. Speciality: from-scratch development of efficient algorithms to deal with data-intensive situations.
- Numerical modelling and mathematical/data analysis.
- Improvement of existing codes, with a major focus on efficiency.

Minimum deliverables:
- Source codes, detailed instructions and full IP rights.
- Life-long warranty for any bug or error deriving from my negligence.

Note that the “2.0” bit in my nickname indicates that this is the second attempt to build my own company (i.e., me alone systematically over-working to compensate the complete absence of support and resources). Thanks to my not-so-good past experiences, I have got very clear ideas on quite a few fronts (summary: http://customsolvers.com/en/pages/attitude_2.0/).
