I began as a PHP Full Stack Developer in the back-office ecosystem at Konfio.mx, the biggest fin-tech in Mexico. I developed, implemented, and maintained a robust codebase that helped the company get to Series A investment.

Content Designer & Developer · Codio.com · UK

I designed and developed 3 computer programming courses for the Codio.com cloud based IDE, including: Introduction to GIT, introduction to the Linux CLI and Bash, introduction to MySQL.

I achieved to communicate complex knowledge in an easy way, as the users were mainly elementary level students, resulting in new investment opportunities for the company.

I was part of the founding team of the educational program Laboratoria in Peru. I worked to empower vulnerable women with high potential to become proactive developers.

I built the course structure and methodologies now used in 2 Peru cities, Santiago de Chile, and Mexico City, achieving to empower a total of 400 students from which 75% get a development job and have a 3.0x increase in their income.

EBM ^3.1.0

The Easy Box Model is a npm package that allows very rapid and modular prototyping setting the foundations for what can become a bigger product.

It is modular by itself as it can fit in any web framework by assigning a source and destination path.

It also introduces a modular Sass and modular JS file structure that meets the MVC model directory organization of most web applications.

EBM Sections for Laravel

A PHP composer package for bootstraping web applications onboarding flows

I developed this package in order to accelerate the development of web forms. Laravel already provides an easy way to validate requests, but this package allows to integrate Blade templating language with pre-built form inputs and an easy way to configure each field to be saved on a specific model.

Customized Private Shopping Carts

I wanted to learn about image classification so I built this project divided into a Front & an Admin interface.

The Admin interface allows the admin user to upload product images that are later classified by clothing taxonomies and are later presented to the end-user allowing him to shuffle outfits and checkout easily through a private shopping cart.
