Hi! I’m Pedro.

I’m a 23-year-old engineer, 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. Currently I’m working on my Master Thesis.

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.

Don’t forget to check my list of recommended NOP (Not-Only-Papers).
