I am a second-generation programmer (my father is a programmer).
If my memory helps me, I am a programmer since I was 9 years old (maybe earlier).
I have over 20 years programming as a professional (since 1997).
I have a Degree in CS, and I'm thinking of starting a doctorate (Ph.D) in CS.
In recent years I have been involved in the Bitcoin and Blockchain world. I am the lead developer and main contributor of one of the most important Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash implementations.
