easynube

Full-stack developer, Instructor, Marketer, Cofounder, 2013

easynube is a technology e-learning platform.

As cofounder and technical partner my responsibilities were to build the MVP.

The platform served as a prototype for a more ambitious goal, which was building a white-label platform for companies and enterprises to create their own learning systems.

The courses were focused on video lessons, which featured a note-taking tool as well as a resources section. It also had a social feed where a user could follow other users and be notified about their activity.

The beta was used by +6000 students.

LingoJump

Full-stack developer, Cofounder, 2012

LingoJump is a language e-learning platform.

As cofounder and technical partner my responsibilities were product design and MVP development.

The platform was addressed to serious learners who wanted to reach proficiency (contrary to most other platforms, which focus mainly on beginners).

The focus was on real reading materials specifically created by the team. Then, we developed a set of exercises and learning tools to help the student extract all the information from it.

GMATAnalytics

Full-stack developer, Founder, 2010

A preparation tool to improve the performance on the GMAT test.

After my experience taking the test I realized one of the keys to get a good score is to focus on your weak areas. In order to do this a log becomes critical and so I decided to develop this application.

There were 3 main features: 1) simultaneous data-entry during practice time -saved a lot of time not having to enter the data after the fact-, 2) an archive with all the questions and answerse -able to filter by all sorts of attributes-, 3) an analytics section that provided insights on what study areas were worth the focus.

Despite I started developing 10 years prior to the release of GMATAnalytics, this was my first SaaS app. I developed my own PHP and Javascript frameworks (XmlHttpRequest days) and so it was a huge undertaking at the time.
