Sergio Viudes Carbonell is a 31-year-old software developer from Elche, Spain. He develops apps and video games for the Web, iOS, and Android.
He has been playing video games since his childhood. He started playing with his brother's Spectrum when he was five years old. When he bought his first PC (well, his parents did), he was 14 years old and started learning computer programming, computer drawing, and music composing (using the famous FastTracker 2). When he finished high school, he studied Computer Science at the University of Alicante.
His interest in mobile devices started with his first smartphone 12 years ago (2002), when he bought the first Symbian device from Nokia, the Nokia 7650. He really liked the idea that he could develop software that can run everywhere. So, along with his studies and his job, he started creating simple mobile apps for his phone. He really enjoys developing apps for mobile devices, composing music, drawing, and of course, playing video games. So, he decided to put all his hobbies together and develop his first video game for his favorite mobile platform, Android.
So far, Sergio has released three games, several apps, and he continues developing apps and games not only for Android, but also for iOS and the Web.
Sergio was one of the reviewers for AndEngine for Android Game Development Cookbook, Jayme Schroeder and Brian Broyles, Packt Publishing and Mobile Game Design Essentials, Dr. Claudio Scolastici and David Nolte, Packt Publishing.
