Introducing Our Team – Meet Vinicius Ribeiro
Meet Vinicius, our new Junior Software Developer!
Vinicius came all the way from the other side of the Atlantic ocean to complete his studies in Computer Science. He walks us through his academic path and shares his other interests other than Software Development.
Tell us a bit about yourself and why you became a developer.
I am from Brazil but I moved to Portugal in order to complete my bachelor in Computer Science at Aveiro’s University.
I grew up surrounded by computers but never wanted to work with them, at least, not until I had some programming classes in my previous academic course. Also, I have a keen interest in game development and my goal is to work in this industry eventually.
You’re fresh out of uni! Which academic project was the most challenging and which one was the most fun to bring to life?
The most challenging project was Pêlo. A web application to manage beauty salons. It’s main goal was to test and assure quality. I assumed the role of DevOps and it was pretty challenging. We had to build test scenarios, continuous integration/deploy pipelines, etc.
The artificial intelligence project was the funniest one! We developed a bot to play a classic Bomberman game, running from enemies, searching for power ups and the level exit.
When you’re not coding what do you do for fun?
Usually, I spend my free time with my girlfriend and/or friends, watching a movie, drinking or playing some computer games. I also like to play guitar!
If you could live in a fictional universe, which one would you pick?
The Witcher universe for sure.
If money and time weren’t an issue, where would you travel to and why?
Asia. To eat!
Would you rather give up tv series or video games?
TV Series! Video games are life!
