Explore what makes me unique and the guy who gets your project done.
I learned to work in a small team with mega awesome (no exaggeration, there) designers and developers, researching on company projects.
I contributed new features and enhancements to the website, including Facebook & Twitter integration.
Being a previous contributor, I joined the ParaguayEduca's, born by OLPC's efforts, IT team to help maintaining legacy systems which at that time had an impact on about 10.000 users.
At the age of 17 I joined the OLPC project and Sugarlabs, which arrived in Paraguay with the goal
of helping the country the develop by donating laptops to every child, as a volunteer.
My main contributions and interests were fixing and debugging issues in Sugar, the learning environment specially designed for children who could not read yet, and writing applications, so called "activities", for it.
Hand-in-hand with other people I helped children age 8-12 to learn how to program with the Python programming language.
Heck, I enjoyed that!
I dedicated my summer vacations to enhance existing Open Source code, being mentored by great people; the whole event being sponsored by Google.
I learned how to coordinate with people in projects with hundreds and thousands of contributors with Git and issue trackers, like Bugzilla, and E-Mail.
Most importantly I delivered code/patches to enhance legacy code being used by thousands of users daily.
My main contributions went to:
A number guessing game for Android phones.
Ruboto website re-design
Ruboto is a tool chain to developer Android applications with the Ruby programming language.
Ideone Ruby API library
Ruby API bindings gem for the Ideone.com API.
