Hi, I’m Eduardo, a web developer from Portugal with more than 13 years of professional experience. I’m an autodidact and I have created my first website back in 1999 and since that day I have been learning continuosly about web development.
My strenghts are creating object-oriented code, well-documented, with security and performance always in mind. The same applies with frontend with an emphasys on imagem optimization, minifying and compressing files.
A sample of some older projects that were replaced by newer versions or that are no longer active
Site dos Provérbios
This was the site that I used to create my own CMS. It was a good testbed for things like full text search, cache invalidation, queries to check for duplicate content and so on.
It had popular sayings and proverbs from Portugal, but nowadays no one cares about old sayings, only likes and Instagram followers so the number of visits were getting lower and lower so I just shut it down. A Facebook like a day doesn't matter anyway.
Before this site that you are currently browsing, I hosted a blog on this domain. It was the previous version before this mini-portfolio now online.
It was written in Portuguese, focused on web development subjects like compression, SSL, cPanel configurations, etc. There was a quarterly feature were I would share the statistics of multiple personal websites and gave the percentages of users with different browsers and operating systems.
A new law was passed to make it illegal for department stores to give free plastic bags to their costumers. The cost of a plastic bag was now 10 cents, but some greedy businesses started to charge for bags that weren't covered by this new law.
The idea was to name and shame such businesses but fortunately (unfortunately for the website) such practices quickly stopped after the backlash from the consumers.
The Portuguese also now adopted reusable bags so the website really didn't have a purpose anymore.
