I love solving real problems via programming and being useful to other people. I read slowly, think slowly, and learning to think rigorously and be meticulous. I love food and enjoy cooking after work. I spend spare time contributing to Open Source. Meet people at community events, enjoy attending and speaking at meetups and conferences.
My main interests include spending time researching what food to eat, programming things that helps people or automates my life, reading things on the internet, traveling, cooking, listening to music and podcasts, Japan and its culture, connecting people at conference events, constantly thinking about how to be more kind, warm, supportive when working with others, and trying to appreciate each meals and things every day.
My favorite, but not mastered yet, programming languages are Lisp-Family programming languages: Scheme and Common Lisp. My favorite food is (Omakase) Sushi. My favorite city is Kyoto, Japan. My favorite websites are Twitter and Wikipedia.
I was an Electronics engineer and amateur translator. I grew up in Taiwan. I went to universities in Taipei, Taiwan and Leuven, Belgium to study Electronics Engineering.

It is a name I created. It looks like Spanish or Filipino, but the first name is given by a friend from Zaragoza. My real last name Huang, pronounced similar to Juan in Spanish. My friend and I became close, so they called me Juanito. Fatas is inherited from another close friend at that time. I use this name for too long, it became my identity on the internet. He/him/his.
I am on Editorial team helping maintain Ruby Programming Language official website by triaging issues, shipping news translations, and site deployment.
