Hello my name is Ricardo, I was born in a small town called Trofa in Porto. It is impossible to forget my first computer that my parents gave me when I was 11 years old, I was amazed about the variety of tasks it could perform, even though at the time I would not imagine how fast the technology would evolve and reach the state where it is today. I am passionate for what I do, I like to be always learning and evolving. I like to think that what I do is improving someone’s life, that’s one of my main motivations. My real passion if backend development, most recently I have been working as a Spring Boot micro-services developer. I have interests besides working, I love to play/watch sports, I consider myself a solar energy enthusiast and I am building my own mini solar powered plant. I love playing with hardware too, I made a project with raspberry pi and Android that send a notification to my cell phone every time I receive mail, and by mail I mean physical letters! Maybe my next technology to learn will be React Native, since it makes easier to develop multi-platform mobile applications.
