I'm from the region of Porto, Portugal. The beautiful city of Vila Nova de Gaia. This is the second reboot of my website :-)

I started my career as a full-time programmer in early 2000s. At that time, I joined the IT lab of a factory. In the following 4 years, i learned SAP ABAP, Java/PHP web programming, MySQL, Postgresql. Started utilizing Linux for personal and professional reasons. Life was good! I have much to thank the IT director (and mentor) from which i learned a lot!
