Experience
  • pydoodler (Development)
    https://github.com/jverce/pydoodler

    Graphical software developed in Python used to create and store simple color drawings. This is one of the many projects that I developed as a Computer Engineering student. The app is fully object-oriented. It was developed using the Pygame framework.

  • Test Bench Generator (Other amazing things)

    The product of this project is a Perl script that automates the generation of test benches for formal verification of digital designs. This achieved an improvement in efficiency that allowed the company to save approximately 1 year of testing. The company was able to achieve a great time-to-market with a bug-free design.
