My name is Steves. Well, no. That’s not my real name, it’s a short for a part of my name.
I’m an IT professional, I’m a creator. I’m also creative, goes well with what I do, don’t you think? Apart from that I love digital art, 3D, abstract, photography and music. Partying is cool too, but I don’t do that much. I blame the work, I’m short for excuses on that one.
On a more serious note, here’s a brief description of me (professional wise)
I’ve started programming when I was 12 (age at which I started writing my first scripts in Linux, along with simple C/C++ applications). Since then my interest in software development kept growing. On the following years I self-taught PHP, mySQL, ASP, C# along with some app-specific scripting languages. On my graduation year I was part of a team of .NET developers working on the development of new features and components for a MMORPG game. I consider myself a very curious and knowledge-seeking person, I am always looking for challenges and new things to learn and I learn them quick.
As a professional software developer I follow the agile methodology (which got introduced to me through the OutSystems technology).
I like to keep clients close to the development process as I believe that communication is key to deliver good software applications. On top of that, since graphics design (web, 3d, abstract, etc) is one of my favorite hobbies, I try to ally that with software development to make professional looking GUI applications and websites.
At this point in time, I am particularly interested in Natural User Interfaces and Mobile development.
