Introducing Our Team: Meet Carlos Ferreira
As we want you to know who is behind all the incredible projects we develop at Exaud, we have been introducing our team in the lasts years.
We think that it is important for you to know who are our developers and what are their favorite things and hobbies.
Today, we present you Carlos who is with Exaud since the beginning of this year. Find out more about him!
Tell us a bit about your journey and how do you become a developer.
Well, it all started in high school, when I decided to go to a computer technology course. Because of that decision, I started having programming classes at 15 years old. Until then, the only thing I used the computer for was to play video games (and sometimes I still do).
My academic degree is Masters in Networks and Systems Engineering from which I graduated in 2013. From all of the technologies and programming languages I worked with, I spent more time working with Java, developing, and maintaining Android apps.
It’s been almost a year since you join our team. How has it been for you?
It has been a great experience. I am learning new things almost every day and the company has a great work environment. Our team has a good know-how and we share knowledge almost every day.
I have been working with external sensors, computer vision and POS devices. I had the opportunity to work in very interesting projects.
What do you do in your time outside of Exaud?
In my free time, I like to test new Android libraries and architectures to try to keep me updated with the latest trends. Outside of programming, I don’t watch much TV. I spend most of the free time on youtube, playing guitar and more recently, playing piano.
If you had to eat only one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I love meat dishes. I wouldn’t mind eating spare ribs or barbecue chicken for the rest of my life. If I turn vegetarian I have no idea what I would eat.
What job would you be terrible at?
Well, I would probably be a terrible florist. I would have to memorize the names of the flowers and to do flower arrangements that would sell…
If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning a medal for?
I think I might have a good chance at winning a medal in a “spot the flaw” challenge. I detect very easily if something is aesthetically wrong or if something doesn’t work as it should. I can spot flaws in anything, it can be an Android app, a drawing, a website or just poorly written text.
