Hi there!

My name is Filipe, I'm and I have over a decade of experience with Python and Django/Pyramid frameworks.

Python was my very first professional language. Of course I've programmed in other ones before it - good old Delphi and Turbo Pascal, why not? =P

I started programming for real when I was 19 - doing some freelances. In the meantime I got a taste for agile methodologies - becoming team technical leader (acting kinda like a Scrum Master) and even Scrum Master itself.

Currently I'm working from Toptal using a vast range of technologies - from API development to Data Science and Machine Learning.

At this moment I'm aiming to work remotely.

Ah! BTW I'm really excited to have some opportunity to work with the following technologies:

  • TensorFlow
  • Blockchain
  • React.JS
I have a bunch of academic knowledge about all of them but (unfortunately) I still had no opportunity to effectively work with them.
