From 2003 to 2012, I had followed the evolution of C# very closely. Along with database development and T-SQL, I have developed and deployed software on Desktop and Web Servers in many different business areas.
When back-end, front-end and devops engineers were all the same thing.
Priorities for my career are: Work on products that make a positive difference to the world. Have autonomy and freedom to influence UX. Surround myself with smart and motivated individuals.
I built my first app, a game of cards called Truco, in my first year of highschool.
That year, I decided to drop the regular school and take a Data Processing diploma from a professional school, which at the time was an alternative to the regular curriculum that students like me would mostly opt to take.
Before I could graduate, I had to switch schools again. I was “asked to leave” by the principal, for hacking. I exploited a series of security issues in the school’s network system and gained access to servers that exposed all students login and password.
Don’t you think I should have received an award instead?
After that, I went to study Computer Science for 4 years and received a bachelor’s degree from PUC-SP and the champion title in Truco.
I worked for many years as a developer for IR, a ticket seller company that grew exponentially and allowed me to work off-shore (remotely).
In 2006, I went to Canada as an ESL student. I got my first work-visa in 2008 from a program the government no longer maintains for IT professionals. Eventually I got a permanent-visa and became a Canadian citizen in 2014.
