Final Degree Project

This project is related to the publication, "Software for the measurement of hydrodynamic parameters in a 2D wave channel using high-resolution video cameras". The developed tool captures wave height in a laboratory in real-time using a webcam (image processing).

This project was developed using C++, Qt and Qwt for the GUI, OpenCV as the image processing and image capture library, tinyxml, and other math libraries.
The tool runs on Linux platform

This project will be an educational 3D pre-historic virtualization of areas in Argentina where you can move around, retrieve information regarding animals, plants, and more.
This project is being developed using open-source tools and libraries and will be multi-platform and free-to-play. Ideally, this project will be used by museums and universities.
Technologies involved include:
* C++, Boost, STL.
* CMake
* git
* Test Driven Development

Director of Engineering Program, Hubert Burda Media Holding KG (Participant)

The program will have a duration of 12 months. It begins with a two-month bootcamp (onboarding university) in Munich where selected candidates will receive intensive preparation (both theoretical and practical) in order to succeed in five different two-month rotation assignments.

Each assignment will consist of leading a specific technical project with a team from one of the companies in the Burda Digital Group. Possible assignments may be with the companies Cliqz, XING, Chip, BurdaDirect, and Tomorrow Focus AG/HolidayCheck.
