About the Speaker

Who you are?! is like this every bio starts. Who am i? One Person always trying to be better in all areas of his life. No, i am not an "anthropologist", but like one i try to use my know how to do, to help in innovation, evolution and right apply of technology. Yes i am just that a technology student and professional.

Along the way off my degree in engenharia Informática e de computadores (or Software and computer engineer) in ISEL i was a software developer freelancer (i keep some activity as self employee to chalenge myself).

After the degree i spend some time studying Artificial intelligence writing papers about the theme and improving my final degree work ( a multi-agent plataform developed in .NET according to FIPA rules).

At the same time i start working in a digital agency as a webdevelopment, thinking how web world can bring more to my skills, and what my core developer skills can help improve development in the web.

Some years later i embrace the software architect job in projects to big companies based in hard to get frameworks as Sharepoint, SiteCore and hard business logic .net solutions. At the present i am CTO at Innovagency , where i proceed with my commitment to bring technology to life.

Other Works

As self-employee i do a lot of software architect and big systems development especially to USA and UK, i had help in some startup and independent projects in Portugal.

Technical training had been something i had spent some time in the last years, and had been grateful until now seen my students become better than me and better then themselves. I am spending sometime in a ticketing for cloud project that i hope to be ready at next summer. I have also some client consumer apps in the market.

I have rediscover the pleasure to give technology workshops to interested professionals and i become an active Technical trainer since 2010, at present i am mentor and one of the teachers of a responsive web design Course.

I had the opportunity to speak in some events about technologies and computer science and i had been a choice for some of the most relevant Microsoft Portugal events in the past 4 years, to know more about the events where i had spoken and to follow my agenda go to my linked in or personal blog.
