In my free time I like to see my daughter growing up, surfing/snowboarding and programming.
I am looking for new challenging oportunities, where I can apply my outstanding communication, training and organizational skills.
I am an open-source enthusiast and trainer.
I use Linux since 1999/2000, first Mandrake, then Mandriva and in 2005 switched to Ubuntu and I stayed there until today. As a natural result of this, I evolved from being just a desktop user, to contributor and trainer as main activity.
Along with my training experience (+1500h/year) I implement open source solutions like:
- Ubuntu (Desktop and server)
- LibreOffice (Linux and Windows)
- CMS (Worpress, Drupal, Joomla)
- LMS (Moodle, Dokeos)
In my free time
I write small articles for my site/blog www.carrondo.net and some other portuguese IT websites and I am part of the team that is writing a book "Portuguese IT and LibreOffice Open Manual" for schools and training centers.
