We care about quality content. We never wanted to be a big publishing house: Our team is small, but it’s a truly wonderful team of people who really care about what they do.

Passionate and dedicated. Honest and respectful. Professional but informal. Quirky and personal. Through our articles, digital books, job openings, conferences and membership, we are committed to nourishing productivity, improving design and development skills and finessing the work-life balance. Getting better, together, by learning from each other — that’s the spirit that has been our mantra for all these years.:) My name is Daniel Parente, Entrepreneur, CEO of Hydra Interactive Entertainment, founder of Bootstart (crowdfunding and acceleration of creative companies), co-founder of Albatech (Technology for quality of life), former director of the area of technology and entertainment of ESNE that included the degrees and masters of: Video Game Design and Development; Animation Film; Cloud Computing and Ubiquitous Computing Engineering, MBA in Digital Content and Video Game Business Management, Master in Bigdata and Analytics Development, Master in Gamification and Master in Video Game Design and Development PlaystationFirst from ESNE/Universidad Camilo José Cela/Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Creator and director of the Madrid Game Conference and Madrid Animation Conference, Blogger and Writer.
