Quick Résumé

Jacobo Tarrío Barreiro
A generalist by training and vocation, I am a software engineer with experience in system administration. I’ve worked primarily on large scale web and server-side applications. My strength is in figuring out how things work: reverse engineering, debugging, and documentation.

Some publicly-visible software projects
Radio Receiver (since October 2013, published January 2014)
An application to listen to broadcast stereo FM radio from a Chrome browser or a ChromeBook computer using a $15 USB digital TV tuner.
It is a Chrome app that is completely written in JavaScript and can demodulate radio signals and play the audio in real time even in a 2012 Samsung Chromebook. Some new C++ code is being added now to experiment with NaCl.
CheepCheep (active development 2009-2010, now in maintenance)
A very lightweight Twitter client for Android, written in the days of Android 2.0 when the official client didn't yet exist and Android phones were slower than today. It is no longer in active development, but I occasionally fix issues as they appear.
