Follows Resume & Skills of Pedro Ferreira <mahound>.


I'm currently finishing an Informatics Engineering and Computing degree at FEUP, in Portugal. I've always been passionate about creating things, and understanding how everything works. So, I learned my first programming concepts at a young age, and, a beautiful day, I decided that I would prefer computer science to a possible future as an astrophysicist. The advent of Internet was essential to me, as I had access to documentation that I couldn't find on any other place except expensive books (which i could not afford).
My passion was always that of making informatics and computer science useful to people working on "classical" sciences: mathematics, physics, astronomy, biology...
When I entered university, i met AI, a mix of computer science , information theory, statistics, logics, biology and physics. I soon became interested on the matter, and, in 2005/2006, I took part in the development of an universal robotic platform for robotic competitions, from scratch, at FEUP/LIACC, more specifically on the C++ AI software.
After the end of the project, I've collaborated on a "real" project on social networks and instant messaging, based on Flash/AMF and Java webservices.
In 2004/2005, I've been awarded a scolarship, by FEUP, for the grades obtained during the previous year.
I've been also collaborating with the Noble Ape project, an open source simulation of artificial life, for more than a year, now.
I'm experienced in both Windows and Unix environments. I'm a  collaborator in multiple open source projects, and I believe in user<->developer communication as the future of software development.
I love learning new stuff. Right now, I'm slowly trying to learn classical guitar and latin.
