Courses and training

One of the advantages of the  computer science and technologies world is that to continue growing and forming you just need a computer. Any of the courses that I give below are free and others pay, but they all have something in common: I learned something.

Academic training:

-Computer science engineering.

(2004-2011) In September 2004 I moved to Donostia-San Sebastián to study at the University of the Basque country (UPV/EHU).

Last year I decided to write the project as an Erasmus student in the University of Hungary (Eötvös Loránd University – ELTE).

The final project, written entirely in English, was a how-to guide to develop and creation of components, modules and plugins for the Joomla content management system and was titled “CMS and its development”. In December 2011 I presented it to the Hungarian court.

Web applications:

-Software Developer in Java technologies (285 hours)

Course for unemployed by Innova4B that deepened in J2EE:

*.-Agile development methodologies: SCRUM, TDD
*.-MVC Frameworks (Spring MVC + ROO, JSF, LIFERAY)
*.-Programming in J2EE environments
*.-Persistence (HIBERNATE, JPA) data
*.-Eclipse, Maven, Git, Tomcat, Bootstrap, JBoss
*.-Licensing models, business solutions and technologies of the future

-Developing HTML5, CSS and Javascript for WebApps, including mobile FirefoxOS (±40 hours)

It is the second course in the MiridiaX platform. Although in my day to day work with Javascript and the course was home to the development, it’s always review and learn some new concepts (such as create apps for FirefoxOS).

Desktop applications:

-Specialist in programming with Microsoft Visual C# 2010 (180 hours)

While looking for my second job he invested a few hours every evening in continue acquiring knowledge. I chose a course of Euroinnova to expand knowledge of C#. A way to continue learning to deal with the .NET framework

Mobile applications:

-MiriadaX (±120 hours) Android course

Through the platform MiriadaX, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia offered this course of introduction to the development of Android applications.

A good course to begin creating your own Android projects.

-Course of Android in Lanbide (40 hours)

In the period of job search, I signed this course Lanbide (INEM) of short duration but with a lot of practical work to initiate me into the world of mobile applications.

-Creation of applications for iPad, iPhone and Smartphones EJECANT (18 hours)

EJECANT (entrepreneurial youth of Cantabria school) was the organizer of this course. As varied profile of students made that course might not be very technical, but I am grateful for this course let me know Processing, a language and environment then I made that much.

Machine vision:

-Vision of the UC course (20 hours)

The University of Cantabria organizes a quite complete summer courses, and the company offered me to sign up for the vision.

Very focused on understanding the theoretical concepts in computer vision and some laboratory programmed in MATLAB, the course seemed a success.

-Seminar Advanced Falcon and cameras 3.0 (15 hours)

INFAIMON is a distributor of equipment for machine vision. They organized a seminar in which explained the improvements of the new version of Falcon (development platform for computer vision). They are propitious for networking and seminars to target market trends, such as cameras, USB 3.0.


-Linux III networks and servers (40 hours)

Through Lanbide (INEM) I made this technical course on Linux servers. Despite having followed some subjects on the subject at the University (Administration of networks or operating systems I and II) saw interesting further education in management networks in Linux. It was a good way to supplement all that theory learned in the race.

Attendance to conferences and congresses:

-8as free GIS Conference

Department SIGTE (remote sensing and geographic information systems service) of the Universitat de Girona organizes since eight years ago the so-called GIS days free. The purpose of these meetings is to bring together a number of professionals and industry experts to present news and studies related to GIS.

In this eighth Conference, I had the pleasure to present the application vintiOS as a novelty within the development of tools in mobility in the field of precision viticulture.

For the presentation I had 20 minutes in which talk about the technologies used for the project and listed the first steps into the world of precision viticulture. For the presentation I used the following documents.

Then, the workshop made a contest of mobile application development (OpenApps4Geo) which won the vintiOS development team (Akixe Otegi, Jon Ander Vázquez and me). We made a brief presentation and an explanatory video of the application.
