Martin Gontovnikas is a software engineer living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He’s an IT enthusiast who started programming at the age of 12, when he decided that this was going to be his life. Martin is passionate about technology and he always keeps up to date with everything regarding IT.

He started as a .NET programmer and converted into Java early on as he saw that most of the open source and the greatest technology contributions were in this area. He continued working on this while trying JavaScript, Ruby, and Scala later on. After learning about Rails, he started to look for a framework that could be as good and productive for the JVM, as it is written from scratch and more robust. That’s when he discovered Play! 1 and Play! 2. He started working with these two with Java as well as Scala, and hasn’t looked back since.
