Added Qualifications

Scaling Scrum Fundamentals (4593)


Understanding that the technology-information world becomes more complex each and every day is essential for a Software engineer. And to fully understand this complexity, education is required.  With that in mind, I studied the MSc. Programme in Information Technology  (Software Systems major) at Tampere University of Technology (TUT) after completing my BSc in Software Engineering systems at the Insituto Tecnológico de Monterrey (ITESM)

My goal is to be a high qualify IT professional. In order to pursuit this I have always combined my studies with real IT projects and jobs. I have experience using different platforms, systems and programming languages. I have been developing windows base application using Microsoft .Net framework for more than 5 years. I have worked with agile development (scrum) in the roles of a developer team member and for the last years as certified scrum master.

Specialties: HMI development, Software engineering, agile development, SCRUM, Microsoft .Net Framework.
