Orestes Carracedo

Hello. I'm a co-founder, software engineer, speaker, mentor and community lead. Here's what am I doing now.

(This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.)


I moved back to Barcelona a in the beginning of 2020. I'm in quarantine, like the rest of Spain, to help slow down the spread of SARS-CoV-2. At least it's sunny (:


In these past few months we have been building data visualization tools to monitor the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and and to be responsible in our lock-down policies. We have collaborated with the White House in different public initiatives in this area as part of my job as a co-founder and full-time software engineer on Navigo, a security company.


I'm helping on the GDG Spain meta-community. We are helping new GDG chapters get started, and organising events across different chapters

I'm part of the GDG Spain Podcast team. We record monthly episodes on technology, education and communities. We have also been producing multiple weekly talks where we live stream technical sessions on the GDG Spain YouTube Channel

I help on the infrastructure team at GDG Tech sessions. We're organising and producing online webinars and workshops for (and with the help of) the European GDG community

I'm part of the organiser team at GDG Vigo.


I'm mentoring students on Google Summer of Code, under the Liquid Galaxy Project.


I'm writing Open Source software that's published on my GitHub.


I'm also streaming as I code Open Source projects on my Twitch channel.


I've been listening to a lot of music lately. Domi & JD Beck are currently blowing my mind.
