Welcome to Alberto Peña!

Last week eden were delighted to receive Alberto Peña as our newest intern. Alberto is a Java programmer from Spain, who has taken a leap of faith by coming to intern at eden, setting aside the comforts of a job, girlfriend, culture and language in order to experience something new. For this, i admire and respect Alberto very much.

 @plagelao server github repository is http://github.com/plag... on Twitpic In the first week we set a deliberately impossible challenge for Alberto: to implement rfc2616 – the HTTP server/client protocol. We stipulated that it must be developed with BDD using Cucumber and Rspec. On Friday Alberto gave a presentation of the first week’s work: a demonstration of the successful GET request. Alberto walked us through the code explaining how it works, and talked about the challenges and decisions faced during the week.

Alberto has been blogging every day, and it’s really interesting to read about life at eden seen through somebody else’s eyes. I encourage you to follow Alberto’s blog: El Programador Feliz. It’s mostly in Spanish, but if you’re not completely comfortable reading Spanish, Google Chrome should automatically offer to translate it for you.

Alberto is not being paid during this internship at eden, but there is a pledgie page in case you wish to make a donation (which goes directly to Alberto) – Help an aspiring craftsman on his journey.

Welcome, Alberto! It is a real pleasure to have you with us!

  3. Hi Aimee,

    As a friend of Alberto I HAVE TO SAY thank you to all the edenites for your warm hosting and for being such a “real utopia” for us. We are very happy for our friend and hope that someday (not too far) we can also work in a place at least 10% as safe, productive and enjoyable as Eden is.

    Thank you,

    • Hey Jose! That’s not a problem! We always like to have visitors, and it’s great to have Alberto with us.
