I founded Codeminer 42 in October 2011. A Fledgling consulting company focused on small teams with great developers to server Ruby on Rails, Mobile and new technologies and new startups. With a little more than a year in operations we achieved to deliver almost 30 different projects, expanded our team to around 40 collaborators, moved to a new HQ building in São Paulo, opened new branches in Porto Alegre, Fortaleza and Natal.
I worked at GoNow Consulting as Rails and Mobile Team Manager, helped put Gonow in the Brazilian IT Market radar.
I worked as Project and Product Manager at Locaweb, the largest hosting company in Latin America.
I worked as an offshore outsourced programmer and held the position of Brazil Rails Practice Manager for Surgeworks LLC.
I later revised Dave Thomas’ and Andy Hunt’s book “Agile Web Development with Rails”, which was translated in Brazilian Portuguese by Artmed Publishing.
Helped establish the Ruby on Rails community starting at the beginning of 2006 (before Ruby on Rails was fashionable). I blog regularly and I also produced screencasts and translated relevant articles from English to Portuguese.
I developed and gave an online Ruby on Rails class in 2007 for the Brazilian company e-Genial Online Training courses.
I organized one of the first small RoR conferences in São Paulo, Reject Conf 2007.
I joined Brazilian Rails activist Carlos Brando to create the Ruby on Rails Podcast Brasil, which we terminated after episode #39 due to the lack of free time to continue this voluntary endeavor.
I created and led the organization of “Rails Summit Latin America”, in 2008 and 2009. The 2-day conferences had more than 20 important international presenters in the RoR community. More than 550 developers participated in each of the two conferences. I made the connections and invited well recognized presenters, including: Chad Fowler, Obie Fernandez, Glenn Vanderburg, Gregg Pollack.
I have written articles for printed magazines such as TI Digital and Revista W in Brazil.
I am columnist for the Gestão 2.0 weblog as part of the Info Online Blog series. Info Magazine is the most well known IT magazine in Brazil (something like “ComputerWorld” magazine).
In 2008, Ruby on Rails was awarded Technology of the Year by Info Magazine. I played a key role in creating the interest in Ruby on Rails in Brazil that led to this award.
In 2009 I was awarded for my achievements in the Agile and Ruby on Rails communities as Personality of the Year by Info Magazine.
