Hello! Bonjour! Olá! Hola! Ciao!

I'm Luís and I'm currently working for comOn Group.

I have experience working on the IT industry with a great emphasis on Drupal and Linux, normally as a Full Stack Drupal Developer and DevOps, and also as a Project Manager and Architect, Trainer and Mentor. I'm no longer interested in pure Development roles, regardless of the technology.

In the programming field, I enjoy working with modern tools and methodologies such as Docker, Puppet, Git and Agile, using them in most of my projects.

Likewise, as a sysadmin I also employ powerful tools, like Webmin, Git and shell scripting, frequently combining secure LAMP stacks with High Performance setups - this guarantees that all applications I setup are capable, well performing and stable.

My biggest clients have been Emakina and FEDICT in Brussels, Vodafone Portugal, Ogilvy, Museu Coleção Berardo and Agenda Cultural de Lisboa, in Lisbon, and I've worked and lived in Lisbon and Brussels.

I've been a key person in the Portuguese Drupal community, where I play a management role for both the community and the assorted sites, tools and social network presence. I like going to DrupalCons ;) Recently, I'm also involved with the Docker Lisbon community.

Outside Drupal, I'm active on other projects and in the FLOSS community in general.

As an hobby, I've made a presence in the Event Planning industry, mainly working as a Coordinator at Different Day where I oversaw events and a community mostly composed by youth.

I like reading and studying history and technology and enjoy walking, cycling and being at open spaces when there's good weather - which we have a lot in Portugal - and especially nature, which I hold in respect and always try to protect. Whenever I can, I also play some role in activist groups and communities that stand by some ideals, such as freedom, FLOSS, democracy, peace and sustainability.
