"dream team" Developers
at the Creative Tech Lab
Creative Tech Lab (CTL) is an initiative launched by the Inter-American Development Bank powered by Banj seeking developers, who will form teams with creatives in sectors such as music, fashion, crafts, promotion and marketing , graphic design and visual arts to create innovative prototypes. This is an opportunity to use new technologies like Blockchain, Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, and Data Science to improve their sources of income and seize new market opportunities.
I'm a software developer working in the blockchain, web and mobile realm. I love building technology that creates better opportunity for people who are making the world a better place
I am a God-fearing person with a passion for science and development believe it or not "Science is man's method to God's madness". I take pleasure in working on solutions to almost anything! There is always room to grow, to be happy, to love. I like to let people be themselves, diversity encourages creativity.
Hi, my name is Kyeal Lawrence. I am an Information Technology Expert with knowledge of seven Programming Languages. As a developer, I often ask myself, "what is coding but the act of creating something from mere ideas?" To me, that is where the real satisfaction of being a developer comes from, making "dreams" come true. People like Steve Jobs understood the value of coding, as he believed it taught people how to think. Even more importantly, he believed everyone should learn how to code, not only to understand more technical aspects of life but to instruct and enhance critical ability, which is multifunctional in any aspect of life. I am a valuable resource to any team or institution because I possess an extensive background in technology, and I am well-informed on the industry. Moreover, I possess cross-disciplinary skills, such as open-mindedness, organizational skills & collaborative expertise that are unmatched. These qualities allow me to navigate any situation with a calm, professional demeanor that has been instrumental in my growth as a young tech wizard. I look forward to the personal and developmental growth that I can gain from this venture, but more importantly, I am thrilled to demonstrate my skills and innovation, which I believe will positively impact this journey
My name is David "Da Face" Hamilton and in real life I am both a Creative and a Developer. As a developer I am approaching sixteen years experience professionally in tech and fourteen years as an artist and songwriter in the music industry. I am also the CEO of a recording studio called Future Crab Studios which has recorded music and completed productions for artists such as Crazy, Nailah Blackman, Mr Renzo and many others. In 2015 I won a Special Prize at the Prime Minister's awards for a music streaming app that I created called We Music. I am passionate about music and still avidly write and perform music and I hope my experience can benefit the Creative Tech Lab positively in moving towards a highly developed, tech-embracing, music industry of the future.

I am originally from Jean Rabel. Shortly after my birth my parents have moved to Gonaïves where I spent my first 20 years. There I went to "Ecole Nouvelle" and to the High School "Collège Immaculée Conception (CIC)". After I have been graduated from High School in 2011, I have moved to Santo Domingo DR where I get a bacehlor's degree in Computer Science from "Universidad Católica Santo Domingo" from 2012 to 2016. During my bachelor's degree, I got the opportunity to work remotely for a Car Insurance company located in the US called Drelief LLC (http://drelief.com/). After graduation I also partnered with a lottery company in Haiti called Fils La Lotto Center which I developed an Android application for so I could bring their manually system to the new technology. During this time I also developed a webiste called emarkall.com and an Android application. Two years after my bachelor's degree, I get approved for a master degree in Computer Science in the US at Maharishi International University. for now I am done with the Master and I am taking a Specialisation in Management before I get graduated for both. Meanwhile I am also working fulltime For Cititbank through a staffing company called Axelon Services Corporation since September 2019.
I am a full stack developer from south Trinidad, (Princes Town environs), currently using Python, Django, React and PostgreSQL as my development stack. Presently, however I've been preoccupied learning different frontend frameworks, preparing myself for any possible job opportunities. I have a passion for mathematics and a love for problem solving, its this passion that's slowly but surely driving me towards data science to be more specific machine learning, but I remain focus on web development at least until I get a job to pay for my certifications. An attempt at providing an online carnival experience has definitely peaked my interest, not just because of the networking opportunities that comes along with a huge undertaking like this, but I also see this as an opportunity to stop overthinking about fundamentals or worrying about checking all the boxes and just fully submerge myself into a project where machine learning and all the fun computer science stuff will be more or less prevalent. I live by the motto "It's only hard because you haven't been trying". It's a phrase I experience everyday.
I am an ICT and Digital Economy Strategist possessing close to twenty-five (25) years' local, regional and international experience spanning work in the public and private sectors where he has been integrally involved in the design and implementation of several globally recognized award-winning initiatives such as SurePay, ttconnect and TTBizLink, and Star.tt. I am currently the Vice Chair of the Joint Computer & Communications Society (JCCS) of the IEEE Trinidad & Tobago Section and was appointed to the inaugural Board of Directors of the recently established FinTech Association of Trinidad and Tobago (FinTechTT) in September 2020 after having served on the Interim Management Committee since February 2020.
I am also a software developer with experience in both web based and mobile applications. I have developed applications using the Linux/Apache/PHP/MySQL stack as well as Python and Flask. My most recent experience is with the development and implementation of Cloud based infrastructures such as Amazon Web Services where I hold certifications as an AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate and AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner.
