About me

Óscar Toledo Gutiérrez
I'm a Mexican software developer, I like to write concise and interesting programs. Currently I work for Familia Toledo organization creating neat applications.
Born in 1978, I started programming at age 5 in BASIC, learnt assembly language by age 9 and afterwards the programming languages Pascal, C, C++, Java, Javascript, HTML, CSS and PHP.
As a hobby, I'm the author of bootOS, an x86 operating system in 512 bytes, and its companion bootBASIC interpreter in 512 bytes; I've developed the world's smallest chess programs in C, Java, Javascript and x86/6502 machine code. I've won five times the International Obfuscated C Code Contest, I came second place in the first JS1K contest and also in the MSXdev'10 contest. So far I'm the only Mexican that has won these contests.
I give talks about programming topics and the influence of software in the society, and I'm a game programming and design consultant. I have been a lecturer in Mexico at the ITESM, ESIME, UNAM, and Justo Sierra University.
In the free time of my free time I'm also a tweetstar with my microstories in @historiasmini.

Currently I live and work in Mexico City, Mexico.
