  • 🇪🇸 Cosas que (quizás) me hubiese gustado oír al acabar la carrera
    June 8, 2012

    Graduation speech for the students of graduating in 2012 in Computer Engineering in my university, Santiago de Compostela. After graduating in 2007 and having started a company since then, I got the chance to participate in the graduation ceremomy with a speech.

    Maybe the best thing is that I thought that the “inspirational quote” that I used to close the speech was from Steve Jobs - as I had seen attributed in Wikiquote. But it turned to be a joke added to the page - where the quote itself is from a Digimon son 🤷 (Butter-Fly, in particular).
