Who am I?

Hi, my name is Amaury and I'm a Software Engineer at Google UK and M.Sc. in Computer Science, degree obtained at Federal University of Campina Grande. I'm from Campina Grande, PB, Brazil, but I currently live in London, UK.

About Me

about

I'm a software engineer who likes to solve problems by proposing smart and efficient solutions. That's why I'm very interested in algorithms in general. I feel more comfortable using the agile methodology as the process of software development. I like to prevent rework.

Since 2008, I'm a Python and Java programmer. Over the years, I had some jobs and worked in several projects, so I had the opportunity to learn new languages (e.g. JavaScript, Ruby, HTML and C) and techologies (e.g. Android, Node.js, Django, Rails, Git and others).

I've been a linux user for several years and enjoy contributing to Open Source whenever I can. I'm also a proud member/co-founder of CGHackspace, a Hackerspace located at Campina Grande, PB, Brazil. There we do some great stuff by ourselves. Of course, if you want, you're welcome to contribute.
