My name is Edgar Sánchez Hurtado, and I like to think about myself as a passionate web programmer (others call me a bit obssessed so I guess I'm in the right direction 😅 )
If you see my formal education you might be surprised about that I have a biology degree. So, where all this passion came from? Why the change? Well, after graduating, I decided that I was going to study Bioinformatics. I've liked tech my whole life, and bringing together the 2 worlds seemed a great idea. Hence, I started learning programming on my own.
Just a couple of months later I had developed a taste for programming. This made me sign for a vocational training in Web Development. The plan was to learn as much as I could about programming before taking a Bioinformatics Master Degree. During the 2 years, this formation took, I joined a couple of online developer communities and complement my formation with MOOCS. I was totally hooked
At the end of the vocational training, I did an Internship at a Bioinformatics department in a research center. At first, my job there was going to be data processing stuff with the other scientists, get a grasp of the field before applying to the master degree. However, I quickly missed the web development workflow. All that processing and data analysis was just not for me. So I dropped the idea of becoming a bioinformatician and embrace my new discovered passion, web programming.
And that's it, after graduating from my Vocational Training I started to apply for web dev jobs until I was hired from Madison MK at Valladolid. My professional career had started.
