Hi! I'm Taxo Rubio

I'm a computer scientist from Granada, Spain.

I work developing software mainly in C99 and Modern C++ (>=11). I'm an advocate for free software and decentralised internet. In my free time, I like to take long walks; play board and video games, mostly classics and RuneScape, my comfy MMO; and write my own programs.

Computer science and other studies

I completed my Computer Science degree in 2023 at the University of Granada, Spain. Before that, I also completed a Media Studies degree in 2018 at the University of Málaga, also in Spain.

My Computer Science bachelor's thesis consisted on the implementation of gcl, an C++ library that explores the metaprogramming techniques used to develop a standard library like the STL. The project ~groctel/ugr contains repositories for many of the subjects I took during the degree. As I had a lower understanding of many computer science topics then than now, some of the projects have stopped working for numerous reasons; I'm working on making them usable again and will upload the results soon(TM).
