Hello! I'm Nuno, as you may have guessed, and I'm a Developer & SysAdmin. I have a BSc in Computer Science and Engineering, and am currently studying for an MSc, specializing in IT Systems and CyberSecurity, within the area of Computer Science and Engineering.



Skillset

What am I actually skilled at?

Programming
Languages

I have worked with quite a wide range of programming languages: C, C++, C#, Java, Javascript, PHP, Python, and less common languages like Lisp and Prolog.

Out of the above, I have worked the most in Python, C++ and PHP: have developed multiple projects (and lots of "scripts") in Python, worked on a large C++ project, and developed websites and APIs with PHP (with and without frameworks).

System
Administration-ish

I have years of experience maintaining servers running Debian, including webservers, databases, distributed filesystems, and a plethora of other services.

More recently, I've been into (and working on) containerisation through Docker, environment configuration through Ansible, and distributed storage through GlusterFS, and deployed all of a company's services using these technologies.
