Pablo Matamoros - Software Engineer at Nutanix

Pablo is originally from Costa Rica and is the oldest of 10 siblings! Pablo is currently pursuing his Master's degree in Machine Learning from Georgia Tech and went to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for his undergrad where he played with cool things like carbon nanotubes, graphene nano-ribbons and all sorts of crazy tools.
When he is not in front of a computer, he loves to grill, enjoy the outdoors and read.

He specializes in software craftsmanship, quality, and the tools and techniques that enable both.

When not at work, he plays electric bass in Durham-based band Console Command and can be found frequently behind a camera as a freelance photographer.
