My name is Manuel Aristarán, and I'm a software engineer with more than 20 years of industry experience. I also play instruments, and sometimes I make videos that I post to Instagram and YouTube. My open source projects are hosted in my GitHub profile. Ocasionally I drop by Stack Overflow to answer questions about Tabula, a PDF scraper which I created in 2013 and continue to maintain. I got my master's degree at the MIT Media Laboratory. If you're still curious about me, take a look at my LinkedIn profile. If you need to contact me, email me at
