Programming & Web

I’ve been working with the web since the late 90s, living through the rise and fall of tendencies, technologies and bubbles.

I started working at the front end, dealing with design, user interface, Photoshop, Flash (oh the useless, annoying web intros!), HTML, CSS and slowly developed an interest on back-end. So I learned PHP, then Linux system administration, Python and Ruby. I make an active effort to test every single new web application that seems interesting.

Ruby on Rails is basically what I do right now. It pays the bills and it’s fun to work with (specially in comparison to Java and PHP). I also do some Python for myself - mostly in things not web-related - and play with virtual machines running several different Linux distributions.

About:

Hi, I'm Fabio. Nice to meet you too. I'm a Brazilian (from Rio) living in Toronto and loving it.

Now you'll say "how could you leave such a beautiful tropical paradise" and so on, but believe me: while Brazil is nice to visit, you wouldn't want to live there for long.

What else? I make music. I'm also a programmer. I cook a bit too. I have several other sites and profiles elsewhere. Finally, you can ask me anything and I'll answer (maybe).

You can also follow me on Twitter, if you want.
