Introducing Our Team – Meet Rui Cardoso
Get ready to meet Rui Cardoso. It’s almost impossible to keep a straight face around this Junior Software Developer who always has a joke up his sleeve. Rui shares a little bit about himself: hobbies, college years, favourite movies and how moody he gets when he loses a challenge!
Tell us a bit about yourself and why you became a developer.
I’m a very regular guy, but I like to think of myself as being someone sympathetic, smart and funny. I’m also very calm, except when I’m losing some type of challenge . Since I was 12 years, old I developed a passion for everything that has a chip as a component, mostly because I spent most of my time in front of a computer. Also, I loved math, and still love, so this was the perfect industry for me.
What was the greatest challenge you faced during your college years?
This one is easy: the stress I felt every time we had an exam or a delivery of a project. It can be quite overwhelming, but I always managed to get things done! So, that’s a motive to be proud of!
When you’re not coding what do you do for fun?
I always loved any type of sports, so exercising is my main hobby. I also like to just lay in bed, watching time go by, relaxing and hanging out with my friends. My favourite thing to do with my friends is bowling!
If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, which movie would you pick?
This one is hard, there are so many great movies, but I have to say Avengers: Endgame.
If you could professionally play any instrument, what would it be?
Piano. There’s not an explanation to it, it’s just what I would want to master.
If you could befriend any fictional character, who would be your new bestie?
Chandler Bing (From ‘Friends’). He’s such a funny character, and I really identify with his sarcasm.
