Mon premier jour en France

Le premier déjeuner!

Le premier déjeuner!

Aujourd’hui, je vais commencer à écrire dans mon blog encore, je pense que c’est un bonne façon de practiquer le français, et aussi d’enregistrer certaines de mes expériences ici en France. J’espère que, après plus écrire, je vais avoir moins d’erreurs et de améliorer.

Eh bien, être ici, c’est incroyable. Parce que tout est très différent de celui de la Bolivie ou aux États-Unis. Par exemple, ici preque chaque maison est très belle et avec beaucoup de personnalité. Ma famille d’accueil est très bon. Ils sont: Une Dame, son mari et ses trois petits garçons.

Merci et à bientôt!

Image Projection: 3D Prototype

February 18, 2011 Posted by Alfredo. Category: Design. Tags: , , , ,

So I decided to keep my promise of posting on my blog, at least twice a week. So here it is, my Image Projection 3D Prototype, I am using this demo in a proposal for an ultra secret project (more on that later), I just wanted to share with you my latest update with it. I hope you forgive my lack of video editing knowledge, I just grabbed Adobe Premiere CS4 and hack it ’til this came out. So if anybody is curious, I used C++, QT and OpenGL libraries to create the footage, edited in Adobe Premiere CS4, and music courtesy of “The Bad Plus“, name of the song “Flim”. Thanks

New Resume: From Dull to Cool!

From Dull to Cool

That’s right, I worked all day yesterday upgrading my resume. I am currently looking for a job, so if you hear anybody in the look out  for a cool Spanish accented Web Designer, I am for hire.

I wanted to post about my experience working on my resume, because I thought it might help others who are in the same boat as I am.

I don’t want to pretend I am an expert writing resumes, but I think I did some major improvements from my old resume. Without further ado, here is the list of things I learned re-designing my resume (listed in no specific order). [continue reading]

New Portfolio: Belleidea 2.0

February 4, 2011 Posted by Alfredo. Category: Journal,WebDesign. Tags: , , , ,

A new beginning!

It was about time I post something new in my blog. I have a very important announcement to make, I’ve updated my website with a new very minimalistic design (any feedback appreciated). As impressive as it maybe be (nahh!), it’s not only the aesthetics  that have changed, but the back-end engine has been completely rebuilt as well.

I have created a very slick (and lite) gallery view to display my pictures, it took me almost 1 month to complete. The driving force behind this project was my incursion to photography. I’ve been wanting to have a photography portfolio for quite some time now, and I didn’t really have something I could call my own. Now I do, Flickr was/is great, but it’s not quite mine. Although, with the gallery engine, I can pull photosets and collections directly from Flickr, thanks to Ajax and a dash of  Flickr API magic dust (you gotta love APIs). [continue reading]

Day 30: Busted gun on the street

Pieces of a plastic gun left on the street.

As I was walking home today, I saw remains of a plastic gun lying on the floor. I just thought it would be cool to take a picture of it. Now, even though the one I ended up picking isn’t very clear about what the black pieces on the floor are, I really like the background and the atmosphere of the picture in general. No updates, I am almost cured; hopefully I will be 100% for Monday.
