Who am I?

Hi, my name is Amaury. I'm a B.Sc. in Computer Science and a M.Sc. candidate at Federal University of Campina Grande. My research focuses on the analysis of software development projects metrics. My goal is to assist the managers on the decision making process. I'm also a Software Engineer at Embedded Systems and Pervasive Computing Lab, developing Android applications for Sony Mobile Communications.

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). If you want, you can download my resume.

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.
