An award-winning eLearning platform for future Latino and Hispanic game developers, designers, and digital artists with more than 900 students and multiple instructors. Born out of my own frustrations by the lack of education alternatives in Colombia and Latin America.
As a solo entrepreneur, my role has expanded to not just design and development, but also producing, directing, marketing, and much more. Here is a list of the biggest accomplishments:
Web Platform Development
UI and UX design on Figma, resulting in a smooth and mobile-responsive experience
DevOps using professional tools and platforms like Amazon Web Services and Kinsta, creating a platform that can sustain hundreds of users at the same time
I also designed, recorded and edited a Unity game programming and design course with 11+ hours of content. Subjects included OOP programming with C#, 2D development with Tile rules and other Unity 2D tools, Unity events, basic AI , audio and UI.
Community Building & Direction
Winner of a $25k Epic Games MegaGrant funding at the end of 2021 to continue educating people in Latam
Directed, Produced, and Edited a total 8 online courses with 7 different instructors culminating in more than 115+ hours of content on the site
Supported multiple initiatives around Latam with Scholarships like the Women Game Jam, LatinxInGaming, and more
Run multiple online events with Hispanic guest speakers from companies like Electronic Art, ThatGameCompany and Unity
The following is the 11-second intro that plays at the beginning of most of our online lectures. Directed by my very good friend Nilsson Cajamarca, Animation MFA at SCAD. Very proud of how it turned out!
