Mateu Aguiló Bosch
Developer at Lullabot
Mateu started his professional engineering career in 2005 as a speech recognition developer after finishing his degree in telecommunications engineering in Barcelona and doing his Master’s thesis at UC Berkeley. He was hired by the university in Barcelona to do full-time research about acoustic pattern recognition and language detection, but felt frustrated that he could not communicate with family and friends about what he was doing, and constrained chasing fractional improvements in speech recognition efficiency so he switched to web development where the fruits of his labor were more evident.
Mateu started with Drupal in 2009 as a freelancer and then worked at a Spanish company where he gained experience working on large NGO sites. Maintainer of the RESTful, JSON API, Simple OAuth, Facebook Autopost, Environment Indicator modules, Mateu tries to share as much as he can with the community, in IRC, and through his work with the Spanish Drupal community. Mateu is also co-leader of the API-First initiative.
