About

Hi there! I’m Elio, a developer working at Automattic on the Jetpack plugin for WordPress.

My serious journey on the Internet started on 2007, when I started using WordPress, the content management system that runs 33% of the web. On 2008, I started a design blog (that I closed a few years ago) called I Love Colors, that gained a lot of recognition due to its design. I wrote on Smashing Magazine, won contests, gave away icons and other stuff in Tutorial9, got interviewed in Noupe, wrote for a WP book and a bunch of other things.

I’ve been involved with WordPress for more than a decade, and during that time, I’ve:

  • contributed to WP core a few times, edited docs for Codex
  • published/contributed to plugins on WordPress.org
  • co-founded wpargentina.org, the WordPress community in Argentina
  • ran a WordPress meetup in my city
  • spoke in seven WordCamps in four countries
  • had the honor to be an MC at the WordCamp US 2017!

Right now I’m focused on working on Jetpack. Being at Automattic is an amazing experience, with interesting projects every day, amazing people and a great environment to work. Automattic is always hiring so you should consider working with us! And if you like the top level domain .blog? You can get yours too!

Whenever I’m not coding, I love traveling, hiking, and generally spend spend time in the countryside. My current hobby is photography, and you can see some of the photos I made here and also follow me on Instagram or subscribe to the YouTube channel I’m starting.
