I work as a product manager at Bitdefender building Android mobile apps. In a previous life I used to be a worldwide evangelist for Adobe. 7 years I travelled all over the world to present on the tools and services.
Some of these presentations where just talks about a specific technology or tool, others where 2 to 4 hour hands-ons I put together to train developers and customers. Did I mention that I am a professional trainer too?
I am not only a speaker. Some times I organize events. In 2012 I was the organizer and curator of Adobe WebUp series – 12 conferences in one year.
Here is a video from Create the Web event in Portugal, Lisbon 2012:
I’ve first started programming when I was in school – my first program was written in Logos and it was drawing the Hydrogen atom on the screen. It was love at the first sight; I’ve just felt that programming computers was opening up a whole new world. Erase that, a whole new galaxy where anything was possible.
Shortly after, I guess I moved up a little bit because I started writing programs that were solving equations and other mathematic problems using BASIC, a pen, and a piece of paper (during communism era it was hard to get your hands on a computer). One year later I managed to execute my programs on a HC-90 and it was a sad day because I learned firsthand what bugs are. Since those early days I’ve been working with all sort of web related technologies. I started to make money using computers while still being a student during the day and web designer during the night.
When I am not working or spending time with my beautiful wife and kids, I love to read/write and take photos of people and places. I also love playing tennis. It is some sort of long-term-project as I’ve never taken any lessons and yet play decent. BTW, Vamos Rafa!
