Pablo loves motorcycles, especially Kawasaki, and even more if they were built back in the 90’s (ZXR power), but he's getting used to smoking Aprilia's too.

Daniel Peñalba
Daniel Peñalba
Senior Engineer

A long-term contributor to the project, Daniel was the first employee to join Codice. He owns the record in number of check-ins to the Plastic repository. He’s worked on every single area of Plastic, but will probably tell you he doesn’t remember it. :-P

He’s an expert on GUIs and plugins (Visual Studio, Eclipse, and so on).

He’s also the guy leading the WebUI development. Dani is a professional guitar player and likes scuba diving, too.

Rubén de Alba
Rubén de Alba
Senior Engineer

A hard-core Plastic hacker, Rubén knows everything about the server, the replication system, database backends, importers, and well … EVERYTHING!

He leads the core changes for Plastic SCM and knows a lot about Git, Mercurial, Subversion, and Perforce. Ask him tough questions and he’ll answer you, piece of cake.

Rubén got his degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Salamanca.

Rubén loves swimming, biking, learning to play electric guitar and hanging out with friends.

Manuel Lucio
Manuel Lucio
Support Master & Ambassador

Manu is in charge of the Customer Support area. He deals with complex setups, policies and working methodologies on a daily basis.

He's the one behind the light fast answers everyone using Plastic SCM is used to, and it is really a daunting task.

Prior to taking full responsibility of support, he worked as software engineer. He has been in charge of load testing for quite some time, so if you want to know how well Plastic compares to SVN or P4 under a really heavy load, he’s your guy. Manu is a Mac user (pretending to be hardcore, isn’t really :-P). He took lead on several parts of the 4.0 code, including dealing with huge repositories.

When not hooked to his iPhone, skate-boarding or learning Korean, he likes to play with Arduino GPS devices, mountain biking and playing tennis.

Borja is one of our most experienced engineers. He knows the entire system in detail, from the GUI to the most obscure command to the server functionality. He’s the go-to guy when you need info about Plastic, but he’s always very, very busy.
