Mentor Profile

" The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now... "

Originally an Industrial Engineer, I worked for over 15 years on Top Pharmaceuticals and Medical Device companies like Pfizer, Amgen, TEVA, Boston Scientific, Medtronic and Baxter. So it was time for a change and decided I wanted to pursuit my other passion of building Software. With that vision in mind, I completed a second BS in Information Technology/Software Engineering and now working towards a Master of Science in Software Engineering at the San Jose State University. On the software side, on 2009 I started coding as a hobby and in 2013 I founded Code Piazza as the company I was working for, closed operations in Puerto Rico. Some of my iOS work can be found in the Apple App Store (SerBees, Show Shoe, Zapatos and Gun Stage) and some of my Web applications can be found at my GitHub account under carlo379.
