About Me

Juan Martín García

I studied graphic design in the University of Buenos Aires, but I was always curious about programming languages.I’ve been experimenting with websites since I was 15 years old. I’m also a teacher at my ex-university, and over the last few years I’ve started sharing what I self-learned through courses and conferences.
