Welcome to my site.

My name is Juan A. Rubio and I’m an independent Software Contractor specialising in Telephony, Mobile and Embedded software development, and Multimedia frameworks and APIs. With a strong interest in Linux as a platform and Open Source technologies in general.

I live in the UK with my wife and my three children and I work as a Software Consultant through my company, Aratelia Limited. In the past I have also worked for telecom houses like Vodafone, Ericsson, Lucent Technologies, Symbian, Nokia or ip.access Ltd.

These days my most important hobby are my kids but when I’ve got some time to spare, I like to to spend some of it with my Yamaha S90ES. Lately I’m putting some time on an open source project called Tizonia, a cloud music player for the Linux console and an Open Source implementation of the OpenMAX IL 1.2 provisional specification by The Khronos Group.
