A quick look at my portfolio should help to understand what moves and motivates me:
> Related & Influential Books: could help to guess my way of thinking
> Some stuff I have created: a few IT projects, blogs, websites...
> Extra courses, workshops and conferences: could help to understand the path I'm following
Related & Influential Books
- The 4-Hour Workweek, by Timothy Ferriss
- The Lean Startup, by Eric Ries
- Running Lean, by Ash Maurya. If you are interested, I wrote an introductory article for IT Engineers here (Spanish).
Some stuff I have created
Long term projects:
- Some of the first virtual reality prototypes to learn languages are my Google Play account. The heart of HeroMask, the first product of EducaInventions is based in those prototypes.
- Grails (Groovy on Rails) apartment renting web application for the University of Cádiz.
Short term projects:
- Visual DSL for people without IT background able to generate Arcade video games to learn languages and othe purposes. The idea of EducaInventions at the beginning was very similar to this DSL we did for a course of the University of Cadiz. However, it has pivot a LOT!
- Firefox extension Google España: simple (but useful!) extension to keep using Google Spain if we are outside Spain. I used it a lot when I was living in China (together with a VPN).
Websites and blogs:
- www.carloshelder.es/blog: you can find articles about entrepreneurship, computer stuff, my everyday adventures in China... (Some articles in English and some in Spanish)
- www.pablopsicologo.es: website I did for the business of my father. If the website of EducaInventions had to be very spectacular, the website of my father had to be simple and serious. I'm proud of the little marketing research we did to carefully choose the text of the website.
- www.radioqk.org: they asked me to redisign their website to look as an old radio because this is the oldest independent radio station of Spain. The design task of modifing a WordPress theme of such as crazy WordPress full of conflictive plugins was a beautiful challenge for me, so I decided to include in my portfolio :)
- www.carloshelder.es/mitica: finally, I uploaded this website I did when I was a kid for being remembered (about our soccer team!). It is still fun :)
Before focusing all my energy in our social Startup, I have been volunteer of a few communities:
