Location: Fundão, PORTUGAL
I’m from Fundão, a little city in Portugal near the highest mountain range in Continental Portugal. I’m a 23 year old Computer Science student. I’ve been programming since I was about 14. I started playing with VB 6, then .Net came out. I guess that was what really got me into programming. Nowadays I also like playing with Python and F# and a few other languages, but C# is still my favorite. Besides college I love to get involved in some other projects. One of them got 3rd place in Microsoft's Imagine Cup 2012 in Sydney, Australia. My team and I developed a Kinect based shopping cart that follows a person around while shopping. This can be really useful for people with disability, because pushing their wheelchair and the shopping cart at the same time can be really difficult.
