I made my first software when I was 12-years old, but I started working as a freelancer developer about nine years ago.
Back in the day, I was a big fan of chats, so I decided to create my own chat platform when I was 12-years old. It wasn’t an impressive system, but I made it work. I got a book from my brother-in-law that was called the Bible of Delphi, which was huge, and that’s how I learned how to code.
The power of creation. You can create things to help other people. That’s what amazes me about coding.
I do mostly client work. Coding for client systems and trying to work with Slatwall Development.
MLM software marketing multi-level where there is a lot of calculations, dealing with money, I spent months and months building this at my previous job.
I have a lot of RSS feed that I am signed up to and I read everyday . My favorite one is Ycombinator and I access it three to four times a day. I like it because it’s a community where people post and comment. They also have the best articles on anything that is trending right now, so any new technology will be there.
Read a lot. If you have questions about anything, ask Google. Also make sure to be a part of a community or group online.
Usually coding. But when I’m not coding, I just hangout with my wife and friends.
Sour Patch Kids, watermelon flavored.
Growing up they used to call me Miguelzinho, which means little Miguel, since my father is also Miguel. In the office Emily calls me Brazilian Bonfire, and it’s catching on (no pun intended).
Are there any other jobs out there? I can’t imagine my life not being a developer.
Cirque Du Soleil.
Fire and Ice in Boston.
My work at a fast food, specifically Burger King. My English was poor and I had to work at the drive-thru.
Intellij Idea. It’s my favorite because it’s robust and has everything that I need.
I HATE CATS.
