My name is Vinícius and I was born in 1988 in Niterói, Brazil. I always liked things related to technology, since I was a child, and my family supported and encouraged me to keep learning new things in this area and then creating my own projects.

I hold a Master of Science degree in Informatics (area: Information Systems) and a Bachelor degree in Computer Science, both obtained at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). My current research aims to develop methods to enhance usability in interactive systems.

I am founder of VBB Software Ltda, working since 2004 (when I was 15!) developing software for medical offices, small business and personal finances.

I currently work with Javascript, having experience developing web complex systems in Angular, NodeJS, Express and React, extending to the Ionic Framework. Besides, I also have experiences in C, C++, C#, Java, Visual Basic, PHP, Objective-C and Swift.

My experience with DBMS includes both SQL (Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL and Microsoft Access) and NoSQL (MongoDB) systems. I also have experience in cloud computing environments, including Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud.

I have a strong background in Agile Methods, including XP, Scrum (CSPO and CSM certificates) and Kanban, having published articles about experiences using them.

I also develop mobile apps and games just for fun :)
