Professional background

For the last few years, I have been working as an employee in my main country, Portugal.

During this period, and with a Barchelor in Computer Science and Computer Engineering from , I have taken part in the planning, implementation and maintenance of extremely demanding applications. Most of these applications have been Web focused and developed using a wide range of frameworks and tools, both from the proprietary and open source fields.

Working for a company with such a wide range of clients and from such distinct business areas has given me the ability to best understand the current needs of the private and public sectors, a skill that has been proven invaluable in more than one occasions, specially to determine the best approach to the client challenges.
