Software developer, coffee lover & family man.

Hi there, this is Amiralles. I'm a .NET developer from Buenos Aires, Argentina . I been writing commercial software for more than a decade by now. I'm specialized in .NET but also enjoy to play with Ruby on Rails and Node JS.

What I been doing

Over the last couple of years I have been working at FPA Software building systems for enterprises and financial industry. From desktop apps, to web based solutions and mobile, I been working on almost any kind of project on the .NET stack.

I’m currently working on a proprietary language that runs on top of the CLR and gives you access to any library written in .NET. We are aiming to build a piece of software that allows you to experience the awesomeness of a feature rich platform while keeping the simplicity of a small DSL.

I usually attend to one or two mayor conferences a year and a lot of user groups meetings near Buenos Aires.

In addition to my daytime job, I did a couple of free-lance projects for small and mid-sized businesses.

I like to spend my spare time playing with my son "the little" Gael, learning new stuff, traveling around and playing the guitar (badly).

Oh yes, I being busy rebuilding this website too. Hope you like it! ;)

How to create MS Word documents from Office templates using C#

The OpenXML SDK allows you to do pretty much anything you want with office files such as Excel, Word, etc… While many people like this library, I found it complex, unintuitive and poorly documented, not to mention the awful xml format that uses under the hood to represent the documents, styles, etc.
