I’m Pains, yes that’s my last name and I build software stuff. Oh, I also sometimes blog about the stuff I build. I’ve been coding for way too long now so a day without code is just not a good day. How can it be?
I live in the USA, was born in Brazil and miss living in Australia. Confusing? Yes.
I code anything, really. But there is nothing better than designing an enterprise scale architecture and see the many pieces working nicely together and evolving. I’ve designed multi-billion dollar software systems and that was fun but I lost nearly all my hair in the process.
What else do I do, you ask? I go home and code some more. However, I got some completely unrelated passions. For instance, I am:
- Kung Fu instructor. I studied under Grand Master Lopes in Kung Fu Taisan.
- Snowboarder. Turn up the music and hit the slopes.
- Volleyball player. I really wanted to play professional, but apparently you need to be really good and ridiculous tall for that…
