I have a Technician degree in Informatics by the IFRN (2012-2015).

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this kind of course, it is a four-year course given in parallel with high school. Its main difference from typical high school is its focus technical training.

The informatics course covers topics such as:

  • computer operation;
  • electro-electronic notions;
  • computer maintenance;
  • software development;
  • databases;
  • computer networks;
  • (networked) operating systems;
  • web technologies.

During the course I worked two and a half years as lead software developer in a local FOSS center: CCSL-IFRN.

There we created Project Samana├║, a IoT and satellite weather station that received several academic awards:

  • 3rd place in engineering at FEBRACE 11;
  • 1st place at the IFRN technological display;
  • AMS Certificate of Outstanding Achievement;
  • bronze medal in engineering at the I-Sweeep.

Me (carrying a satellite dish) and some of the team.

The project was also one of the few in the country (and the only one not developed in a university) to receive funding from the AEB.

In the senior year I also worked a few months in the international OpenWorm project as a frontend developer in their Geppetto team.

I can work on:

I don't believe! JavaScript development, in both frontend and backend
for real?! lua development
no way! graphics programming
show me the code website design & development
oh, really? OpenGL and WebGL development
