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.
What am I actually skilled at?
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).
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.
A short tour through my life
Studying in Instituto Superior Técnico, IST for short, in Lisbon
After over three years in operation, I no longer had the time required to keep it operational, and so all customers were phased out and operations were officially ceased.
Finished with aggregate grade of 17, equivalent to the top 1.04%
Summer internship at Celfocus, a Vodafone Portugal and Novabase joint venture, researching and developing a prototype for automated environment deployment.
Specializing in IT Systems and Cybersecurity.
September 2018 - July 2019
I was part of the faculty for Operating Systems in the 1st semester, and part of the faculty for Cloud Computing and Virtualization as well as Highly Dependable Systems in the 2nd semester.
Some open-source projects I've worked on
A hosting bot for the Warcraft III multiplayer game, developed over the years by a community of enthusiasts. Fork with the goal of adding features to support an upcoming project that seeks to revitalize the dying community.Check it out
2-player pong, with ridiculous powerups and modifiers: developed for a one week programming competition against other students. Ended up in 2nd place.Check it out
A file-sharing platform, using end-to-end encryption. Supports folders, sharing, and works with little-to-no user awareness of the underlying functionality. Developed for a security course.Check it out
A file synchronization program, with a server and a client, which automatically synchronizes a given folder placing the most up-to-date files on both server and client. Developed for a networking course.Check it out
