ABOUT ME
I'm a developer and SysAdmin at Subvisual (https://subvisual.co) where I do all from server and DNS configuration to pretty Front-end animations. I'm more interested in Back-end programming, and have a strong background on computer performance, which is something I take very seriously. I've given a few talks at local meetups such as the one founded by my company: Braga.rb (http://www.meetup.com/bragarb/) I'm one of the organizers of RubyConf Portugal (http://rubyconf.pt and http://2014.rubyconf.pt). I also gave some classes at local unversities, as our company was requested to teach a Web Development course, and am now involved in the ongoing Creators School, an 8 week programming course (http://creatorsschool.com/) I'm mainly a Ruby developer at the moment, although I also work with Javascript (both on the front-end and back-end), C#, git, Linux

Miguel was very good at explaining things in Ruby and Sinatra. I've never made an app using a Sinatra backend, so Miguel's help was key. I got farther with him in 2 hours than I could have on my own all day.
