About Me

Hey there 👋 I’m Inês and I’m based in Porto, Portugal 🇵🇹

I did a bachelor's degree in Informatic Engineering at the university of Coimbra (the best city in the world to spend your university years, I can spend hours talking about all the cool traditions).

Then, I moved to Porto to take my master degree in Biomedical Engineering, since the healthcare field always motivated me.

My master’s thesis was about a telemedicine system that used sensors to track sleep. I did this work in the Albertov Research Center in Prague, where I lived for 6 months.

Doing this Erasmus program, unlocked my will for adventure and travelling.

Although I love traveling, I like the feeling of coming back 'home', and right now that place is Porto for me.

Right now, I'm working as a software engineer at Mainmatter.

In this company I discovered the frontend world and I'm enjoying it a lot, I'm working mainly with React. However, I like to explore other frameworks and this is how this website was born using Ember 🐹

I love finding nice cafes to stay working. This place is 'Ler Devagar' in Lisbon.

The other motivation for creating my place on the web comes from my enjoyment of documenting my experiences. I've had a blog before, back in 2013 on Blogspot. Also, since I was a kid I would always keep diaries.

This place will be for me to share my learning path in the world of tech as a software engineer and my travel journeys. 👩‍💻 🌍

Welcome 🤗
