A whole new website

Since the release of version 2.0 of the website in February 2009, we had not implemented such a comprehensive set of improvements. For this new version, we analyzed all the pages according to the feedback received during all this time and also according to the need of an update on the IT infrastructure.

The new ricardo-vargas.com brings several new features, with which we hope to make the user experience much better for current and future users that are interested in project management and related content.

Read more about the new features.
