About

Bruno Maia

Software/Web Engineer

My name's Bruno Maia, and I graduated from the Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto (FEUP) in Informatics and Computing (master).
I'm a creative, autodidact, hard-working, meticulous and adaptable, bag of meat and bones, focused on FullStack Web engineering, Distributed Systems and UX.
Though, I'm also interested in computer graphics, web and print design, and video games.

I've always thought of engineering as something similar to Legos. We have all the small pieces, all we have to do is put them together and form bigger and better ones. These, in time, become tomorrow's new small pieces and the cycle goes on and on.
It's no wonder that I chose this line of work, where innovation is at the tip of everyone's fingertips. You don't have to get expensive gear, you don't have to buy prime resources, you don't have to know it all, you just need to want to learn and innovate.
