Experiensed software developer
Long ago, my father imparted a dual directive: pursue a profession that offers financial stability, and then, find one you genuinely enjoy. Thus, in 1999, my foray into software development commenced – a path initially paved by the allure of monetary gain. However, this initial motivation led me astray, resulting in a series of misguided decisions. I found myself entangled in projects devoid of personal resonance, grappling with technologies that failed to ignite my passion. Consequently, by 2010, I found myself drained and disillusioned, prompting my departure from the field. In the aftermath, I sought solace in alternative pursuits, dabbling in artistry and carpentry. Yet, amidst these diversions, a yearning for the intricacies of technology persisted. While these endeavors provided fulfillment on a personal level, they ultimately proved to be mere pastimes, unable to satisfy my professional aspirations. In 2019, fueled by a desire to reignite my career, I embarked on a transformative journey through a bootcamp, refocusing my expertise on the dynamic realm of web development. Since then, I've rediscovered the joy inherent in software engineering, embracing each challenge with renewed vigor. Though my journey has been marked by twists and turns, I stand now with a wealth of experience, albeit humbly acknowledging that I am not yet an expert in this ever-evolving field. Originally hailing from Brazil, I now reside in Portugal with my wife, drawn by the promise of a different way of life and the opportunity to forge deeper connections with our relatives. Our time here has been nothing short of fulfilling, as we eagerly embrace the myriad experiences and opportunities afforded by this new chapter.

Ruby developer since early 2000s
Great at refactoring, audit and developing of legacy apps as well as building apps from scratch with modern Ruby and Rails. Focused primarily on back-end, having an understanding of front-end as well. A fan of DRY, DSLs, Rails Engines and Active Record. Not a big fan of SPA, micro-services as well as extensive front-end development or DevOps chores. Can bring your decade old outdated MVP back to life step by step without rewriting it from scratch or hiring a new team. Normally you have two choices: 1) a legacy team considering their creation to be great as it is or 2) a new one telling you that the app should be thrown in the trash and replaced with a brand new one using their hyping shiny tools. Able to learn your legacy app in days — without a documentation or help of former developers if abandoned. Can learn your favorite frameworks on my own and jump in fast. Can use a lot of secondary languages for audit or bug-fixing on an occasional basis.
