I'm a software developer always eager to learn, and who adapts easily.

Having finished my degree in Informatics Engineering in 2009, I started working in the field in that same year. Until today I have had some different experiences, but I mostly worked with C# and Microsoft technologies, with some Java programming. I passed through desktop applications development, to backend server development, mobile development and I'm currently a web developer (some backend and some frontend so, fullstack). In these different companies I worked in smaller teams, bigger teams, alone and I even managed my own little team having some time doing project management. I consider myself someone who is always eager to learn, fast to adapt, and happy to share my experiences when needed.

    Master in Informatics and Computing Engineering

    Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto

    While learning Informatics and Computation Engineering at FEUP I found a full five years integrated cycle of education, training and apprenticeship. This integrated cycle matches the implementation of the 1st and 2nd cycles of the Bologna Process and immediately confered me the Master of Science academic degree. At the end of the first three years (1st cycle) I had acquireda solid base instruction comprising not only the essential scientific and engineering skills, but also a wideband fundamental knowledge in several domains of informatics, although not specialized. At the five years integrated cycle conclusion I had an advanced instruction in Informatics and Computation Engineering, comprising a broad range of interests.
