Summary

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)
  • PHPList

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.

Objective

I am looking for new challenging oportunities, where I can apply my outstanding communication, training and organizational skills.

Interest

In my free time I like to see my daughter growing up, surfing/snowboarding and programming.
