Hi 👋🏻, I'm Diego Carrasco, an entrepreneur-turned-developer living in Germany. I enjoy writing, learning, developing and creating stuff.

You can find me on LinkedIn, Xing, Medium sometimes on Twitter, Mastodon and on GitHub

If you want to know what I've been up to, just check the now page

You can follow my articles on Mastodon or in this Telegram Channel.

I studied business administration and marketing in Chile, got a Master Degree in Marketing, learned Data Science and Python programming in Coursera and I keep on learning new stuff.

I have experience as a founder and manager (including operations) in IT, Intellectual Property, Smart Labels, Education, Marketing and Business Consulting, Design and Brand development, Investment and Printing.

I am a Generalist when it comes to Startups, developing new projects and solving problems, and I am able to tackle problems and challenges in many areas.

I am a Specialist in Marketing and IT applied to business and I have knowledge in IT, business and marketing, which allows me to have a more holistic approach to challenges.

In 2019 I moved to Germany and started working as a developer (php and python) for MEHRKANAL, where we develop awesome systems with a great team. Our main product is the Marketing Suite, which enables descentralized companies with many dealers to manage their marketing efforts in a structured and controlled approach, as well as centralized companies in need of localized marketing, all supported with our related services. Since 2021 I am in charge of technically developing the digital area, automating digital marketing campaigns and improving our services regarding Google Ads and Facebook Ads, while being part of MKLabs (MEHRKANAL's Innovation Lab lead by Thomas Eimers).

I am always learning and I have found enough courses for a couple of years.

You can check my dev stack in, almost all running either in Docker containers with the code tracked in GitLab or GitHub or in miniconda environments.

I mainly use Python + Django for data projects (and personal projects) and PHP + Laminas for work. I love PyCharm Pro and PHPStorm running on my AsusPro running openSuse Tumbleweed, although I sometimes use VSCode.

Data Science

I love pandas, folium, matplotlib, seaborn, numpy, spacy, NTLK and sklearn.

I use Torus locally on my MacBook Pro (Docker + coockiecutter + Jupyter Notebooks) and IBM Cloud Data Platform when I need something more advanced. [2020] I now use custom docker-compose files for development and production I also use local and remote servers running Linux, and access them remotely for long processes using ssh + screen (and ohmyzsh starship).

Website Builder

I have experience building websites using Drupal, WordPress and Joomla, managing Linode’s, Hertzner's and Digital Ocean’s VPSs. I use an iPhone, iPad, and old Tochiba Laptop, MacBook Pro and a Ryzen 7 desktop computer, depending on the task, but can also use most flavors of Linux and Windows. I enjoy the (local and remote) administration of Debian-based servers for personal and professional projects.


I’m currently working on several book projects (these take time). You can read about the almost finished ones here.

I use Scrivener and Reedsy Ulysses and Markdown Asciidoc as tools for long-writing and Ulysses and WordPress Markdown, Asciidoc and ReST for this blog. LanguageTool helps me check if I can improve my text and acts as a proofreader (and works in several languages).
