The guy you see to the left. Electrical/electronics engineering student mostly doing embedded development. Linux user since '05.

You might want to check what I am up to on my blog (in Portuguese mostly), my Twitter or my GitHub, or my skills are available on LinkedIn. Alternatively, if you want to see what I'm listening to, check my last.fm or Spotify profiles.

If you have any doubt/problem about my questions/answers, comment on them.

I will always try to comment why did I downvote, and will remove those downvotes if questions/answers are subsequently improved.
