About Me

Who Am I?

Hi, I'm Nicolas Yuste. I'm passionate of mobile platforms and mobile devices. I love making software people can touch with their fingers. I've been developing and leading teams who developed Mobile Applications for more than 10 years. I am currently living in León (Spain) and working remotely for the company I worked during the last 5 years: Groupon.

In addition to coding, I am very active, I like the outdoors, music, going to the cinema, flying my drone and playing soccer.

Ingeniero en Informática por la Universidad de León.

I finished my degree 2012. I learned everything I could and I met a lot of interesting people during this time. I always had to learn Mobile Development on my own because at that time, it was not common to teach iOS development in the Spanish universities yet.

Beca Erasmus para un año completo en Suecia.

I lived in Halmstad (Sweden) for one full academic year. It was a great experience where I could meet a lot of people and improve my English, something not so easy to do in Spain.

It was in 2010 when I needed the Diploma to be allowed to request my Erasmus scholarship to Sweden. My English has improved a lot more since then, specially after leaving 5 years in the United States.
