About Me

agustin-villalbaWho I am?

I am Agustin Villalba Casás, web developer. I graduated as Bachelor in Computer Systems at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in 2007 and since then I have participated (both in my regular jobs and as freelance) in the development of web sites in the whole process of its growth, from creative ideas to implementation and setting up.

Although my beginnings in programming were with JAVA, my experience as a web development is based on the latest web technologies as PHP, CSS 3, SASS, HTML5, jQuery, Composer, PHPUnit, Vagrant, Git, databases and content management systems. I am very interested in the latest trends and advances in the development industry, in order to provide quality websites with the latest developments.

As proof of this, you can visit my blog (http://phpsblog.wordpress.com), where I like to deal with issues related to web programming, both server side and user interfaces, trying to document those problems that I have found in the course of my career and to be able to share my solutions with who may need them…

What I do?


I am currently a software and web development engineer at the headquarters of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (www.embl.de) in Heidelberg, Germany, where I carry out various projects both in the Laboratory’s main website and for various research groups working there. I also carry out some maintenance and optimization of systems on which the websites are based.

A little bit of my experience

Previously, during 2 years, I was the development manager of Digital Art & Designers, where we carried out, among other projects, the development of all types of sport support software for FIFA, as well as the necessary technical support in the tournaments that the mentioned institution organizes around the world. This forced me to be at the forefront in the design, development and security on the web.
