About me

I am Antonio Sánchez Pineda, final year student in Computer Science and IoT developer.

As a student I liked always be involved in projects where I could learn and contribute knowledge in all of them. The most amazing projects I've developed has been in the last year, thanks to have met people like Rafael Maranon-Abreu and Carlos Ralli-Ucendo who have helped me and given me different challenges.

One of my first projects was the development of a system based on Arduino for the detection of leaks in irrigation system. Next, I started my Talentum Startups scholarship in Telefónica.
The purpose of Talentum Startups is to provide students the opportunity to work in startups. In my case, for a period of 6 months I was working with GovFaces and Nubbler. These startups are totally different each other, both in business and technology.

Thanks to this experience I started to participate in more projects. During those 6 months, I won the Best IoT Application Award in Campus Party London 2013, then I won third prize in Smart Cities Santander Hackathon in October 2013 and finally, I was one of the 20 finalists for FiWare 800k Challenge held in Brazil.

The project FiGlass is currently qualified for the final challenge Smart Society to be held in Madrid after this summer.

I am currently involved in two different projects, Like-Art and FiGlass. In addition, I am also doing projects with Google Glass and Pebble smart watch for Zerintia Technologies, a company based in Madrid.

I would like to develop my professional career in California, is an environment where you can meet amazing and very well-formed people. A place with a unique culture and ecosystem to promote innovation.

Finally, I would say about me that I love to travel, is my main hobby. I love discovering new places I have not been before, meet people from other cultures and enjoy the cuisine of other countries.

QuickParking

Finalist in Fi-Ware 800k challenge, Brazil 2014

QuickParking is born from a very common problem in cities today: managing public parking. Searching for empty parking spaces is a tedious task that takes a lot of time, resulting in decreased productivity for businesses and increased pollution in our cities. The application allows the citizen to quickly search and find a vacant spot.
