• About the speaker
Carlos Quiñones is a man in his mid 30s that thinks an awful lot about video games. Back in the early 2010s, he co-founded a video game studio called Secret Library with a few of his friends and went on to create a handful of iOS games with a focus on simplicity and approachability. He’s also held totally real and legit jobs at Turner Broadcasting, The Weather Channel and is currently a Senior iOS Developer at Possible Mobile.
