Inpsyde developer Emili Castells

“I’m 43 years old and currently, I’m living in Reus. That’s a little warm town near to Barcelona, Spain. In my free-time, I like drawing, watching movies and reading books. Here you can find for example, a video of one of my works in Photoshop:

Moreover, I love WordPress and it’s community and therefore try to attend as many WordCamps as possible. It’s a great possibility to discover new cities and tour the country. I always try to contribute to the community, for example to create new plugins, review themes or give talks.”

How I came to Inpsyde

“Before working at Inpsyde, I worked as a freelance developer for digital agencies in Spain. I’ve been drawing since I was a child, therefore, I studied graphic design first. When I started my career in 1999, I learned Flash and used it for many years in conjunction with HTML. ActionScript 3 captivated my interest in programming and since then, I started learning all about object oriented programming, PHP and JavaScript. Most recently, I focused more on WordPress development. I saw the vacancy in BackWPup’s admin message. Before applying, I visited the Inpsyde website, checked BackWPup’s code and its GitHub page to see how they code other plugins. My conclusion: They love WordPress and they produce top notch code! So I thought, I want to work there!” 🙂

What I’m doing at Inpsyde

“At the moment, I’m contributing to the MultilingualPress plugin. I’m doing support, fixing issues and improving the plugin. All my code is being reviewed so that it fits to the high quality standards of MultilingualPress. That’s quite cool, because it highly improves your developing skills and it ensures that you produce code being aligned to the plugin’s code base. Moreover, I’m learning a lot about development topics like testing, debugging and modern PHP development, just to name a few.

Working remotely at Inpsyde is great because it enables you to organize your working time flexibly. And it gives you the possibility to travel the whole world while working. At the end, all you need is good WiFi and a laptop computer. Well, Inpsyde is a place I want to be.”
