My name is Maxi, I am a software engineer and teacher from Argentina.
I am a family man. I like sports, and I am obsessed with Fermi’s Paradox.
My latest Top Story was about GitHub Copilot.
There’s a lot of fuss about bad programming habits, and Copilot is amplifying them (like every other AI with the wrong dataset).
I write very short articles almost daily. From the eureka moment in the shower to publication, I spend about 3 or 4 hours.
I write about boring things like programming. I cannot compete against fancy tutorials on trendy new rubbish frameworks.

I want to write a compilation or book.
I like smelling gas oil. Everybody does, but I am honest and willing to confess it.
Cycling and playing soccer.
More clean code fundamentals and software design tips.
