Yes, I like to write programs.

In fact, it is hard to me to do research without coding anything. All my papers have required coding (or scripting) in different languages. Some old calculations in Fortran 77 and recent ones in Python. I have needed to code in LaTeX to write papers and in gnuplot to make plots. In any case, the list continues to grow.

I learn new languages by having goals, but these goals are research motivated. This means there are a lot of features that I miss because of that.

Nowadays, there are many website with resources and courses about popular programming languages. So, here it is a list:

Dark Matter Day

Today at 18.30 GMT is #darkmatterday. But, what is the event?

This day is a worldwide effort to arise public awareness about the research topics surrounding the search of Dark Matter.

I am part of lawphysics, and we organize a darkmatterday event. The event is going to be challenging because it is a videoconference between 3 universities in Latin America together with 6 physicists working on topics related to Dark Matter.

We will talk about it but specially we will talk about the latin american scientific effort in the area.  You can follow it directly in the lawphysics youtube channel. Enjoy

So, let’s see if I can keep writing…
