Lead Software Engineer
What Drives Him
Miguel loves to understand how things work and is keen on solving everyday problems. He developed his software skills as a practical way to accomplish that. He values team work and he is always trying to learn more.
Back Story and Achievements
Miguel found his passion for programming quite late in his academic path, during the final thesis internship. It was the simplicity of Ruby on Rails that delighted him. He ditched the electrical wires and decided to be a programmer.
He already worked with a variety of technologies, both frontend and backend. What he loves the most is doing frontend development as well as architecting new systems.
Now he is focused on extending his frontend knowledge and experimenting new concepts, like progressive web apps.
Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering, major in Telecommunications, Electronics and Computers at Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto
Semester abroad in Rio de Janeiro State University, Brazil
He loves to read, to travel and to play the piano.
When a difficult bug arises, he laces up his running shoes and goes out for a run. It is out there that most of his thoughts and ideas take place, either during a small jog or a marathon.
