I'm a person that is growing constantly with other people around, by brainstorming, bringing new ideas, failing and rising stronger with more knowledge.
Wodify Core, Arena, Rise, Live
Software products (desktop and mobile) with different proposes. Wodify Core is a software that runs on mainly CrossFit gyms, where it is possible to do everything to run a CrossFit business. Arena, Rise, and Live are products event-oriented, where Arena is used to run CrossFit competitions by registering results, etc... Rise is used to run healthy challenges, like food challenges and Live is used to run for instance conferences.
Enhanced and developed some features, refactored code, led people, suggested improvements, monitored errors, did deployments, and helped infrastructure.
Gestão de Templates
Software that has the main objective to produce templates to build reports and questionnaires.
Gave applicational feedback and unlocked roadblocks.

Project Lx Conventos aims to study, in a systematic and integrated manner, the impact of the dissolution of religious orders in the dynamics of urban transformation in nineteenth-century Lisbon. After the liberal revolution and the civil war, in the 19th century, the dissolution of religious orders led to the alienation, in Lisbon, of nearly 130 religious buildings which were then given profane occupations (mainly public services) or demolished and divided in plots, originating new urban realities. Project Lx Conventos thus aims to show that the extinction of the convents was decisive in the urban development of Lisbon, in the eighteen hundreds. The project stands on a large set of multimedia data which includes historical and contemporary cartography and geo-referenced photos, videos and 3D models, provided by the project's partners, Lisbon Municipality and the Portuguese National Archive, Torre do Tombo. Supported by these materials, the project's team is creating an online system that will implement a spatial and temporal navigation of these resources integrated into an interactive Map of Lisbon. Besides spatially locating and analyzing the data available for each of the religious buildings considered in the project, the tool integrates cutting-edge interaction technology for 1) Enabling a temporal voyage over the available traces of religious buildings; 2) Analyzing the evolution of religious buildings and their surroundings, through available data; 3) Using 3D representations of the buildings for accessing related data, through time. In this paper, the tools developed in the context of Lx Conventos are described, as well as the technologies supporting them. The current status of the system is presented and future developments are proposed.
Image matching algorithms are used in image search, classification, and retrieval but are also useful to show how urban structures evolve over time. Images have the power to illustrate and evoke past events and can be used to show the evolution of structures such as buildings and other elements present in the urban landscape.

The paper describes a process and a tool to provide a chronological journey through time, given a set of photographs from different time periods. The developed tool provides the ability to generate visualizations of a geographic location, given a set of related images, taken at different periods in time. It automatically processes comparisons of images and establishes relationships between them. It also offers a semi-automated method to define relationships between parts of images.
