Hi! I’m Pedro.

I’m a 22-year-old engineer, AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate, interested in distributed systems, architecting scalable systems, developing micro-services and serverless applications and keen on web development. I enjoy working in teams and manage processes.

I’m in my last year of my Master in Informatics and Computing Engineering at FEUP, Porto, Portugal. Although, currently, I live in Madrid as an exchange student at UPM.

I’ve started working on my Master Thesis and I’m also working remotely, in part-time, as a full-stack developer at Bitmaker, where I did a summer internship in 2017.

Last summer, 2018, I did an internship at AWS (Amazon Web Services), in Madrid, as a Solution Architect.

I sometimes post stuff on Medium, and I also keep track of the books I read.

You can always drop me a line at me@pedrocosta.eu
