I was born in 1987 and I live in Oporto, Portugal. I hold a Degree (2010) and Masters (2015) in Computer Science Engineering at the School of Engineering, Polytechnic Institute of Oporto (ISEP), focusing in Large-Scale Middleware Architectures.
Now, I have almost 10 years experience in IT solutions, 3 years as a Junior Researcher and 7 years in retail solutions, both from my experience at Xhockware and Xarevision. I worked on several projects, personal and professionally, such as Mobile Checkout (YouBeep), Mobile Payments (mPOS, Multibanco, MBWay, Referências MB), Mobile Scanning (Cordova Plugin for QRCode and Barcode scanning), WebServices Development (PHP, Express, HapiJS), REST APIs (PHP Slim Framework, NodeJS Express, HapiJS), Database Management (PostgreSQL), Digital Signage, Home Automation (SEWI Project), Geofencing (Geolocation Quiz - under development), etc.
Currently I'm leading the development of the YouBeep Project, being responsible for the management, coordination and implementation of several Web projects inside the company. YouBeep is a mobile shopping and checkout solution that reduces checkout time, while enhancing the overall customer shopping experience. Ideal for retailers looking to improve customer satisfaction while also reducing operational costs.
At 2015, I joined Xhockware a Full Stack developer on the YouBeep Project, powered by Xhockware SA. For the first two years on the company, I was involved in several parts of the development process, such as database management (PostgreSQL), webservices (PHP, Rest APIs) development and Web development (mobile hybrid applications and webpages).
Since 2017, I assumed the Head of Mobile position, giving me the opportunity to suggest and challenge the development team to change things a lit bit :) After some time, I proposed VueJS and Framework7 Frameworks as the core Frameworks for most of Web development projects, starting at YouBeep mobile application, and we DID IT! Yeahhh :) VueJS is now the core Framework for almost all the Web projects the company is working on. I love to work with different teams in different projects, involving other topics as well.
My main interests are in the field of Web development, Mobile development (hybrid applications), Middleware-based Architectures (XMPP, RabbitMQ, ZeroMQ), Open-source contributions (Framework7 Framework, Cordova Plugins, etc).
