Software developer, coffee lover & family man.
Hi there, this is Amiralles. I'm a .NET developer based on Buenos Aires. 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 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.
Currently I’m developing a proprietary language that allows lightning-fast translation of business requirements into executable code. This language runs on top of the CLR and provides access to any library written in C# or VB, unleashing the full power of the .NET platform while keeping the simplicity and productivity of a small DSL. I cannot disclose any details here, but our customers are amazed with the feature set that this language brought to our products.
I usually attend to one or two mayor conferences a year, such as BUILD or PDC, and being someone who has met Anders Hejlsberg, Scott Guthrie and Scott Hanselman, among many other talented people, I can say it totally worth the effort.
In addition to my date time job, I did a couple of free-lance projects for small/mid-sized businesses which you can see here.
In my spare time I love to learn new stuff, travel around and play with my son "the little" Gael.
Oh yes, I being busy rebuilding this website too. Hope you like it! ;)

In this post I’ll try to answer some questions about the web browser control and provide some workarounds for known issues involved in the printing process. I'm assuming that you have some experience with the web browser control and basic knowledge of COM and hosting APIs. So I’m not going to cover...
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.
