Hi, my name is João Simões, and I'm a Computer and Software Engineer working at Accenture.

João Simões's Bio:

Hi, my name is João Simões, and I'm Computer Science and Computer Engineer.

 

Currently working as a technology consultant, João Simões is responsible for planning and designing the architecture of large scale applications which, due to clients business requirements, normally fall into web services (REST or SOAP) or websites, but desktop and mobile applications are also common.

 

João Simões loves technology (probably too much for his own sake) which, in conjunction with the experience gains through such a wide range of projects, allows him to gain extensive knowledge in some of the most commonly used programming languages, being great examples Java, C#, Javascript, SQL, C/C++ or Objective-C. While using all this languages, he also gained expertise in frameworks like ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET Web API, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Presentation Foundations, Entity Framework, jQuery, Spring Framework, jBPM, Liferay and more.

 

When it comes to persisting information, João Simões knows SQL databases extremely well, specially MySQL, SQL Server and Oracle, while having some knowledge about NoSQL databases, like MongoDB.

 

Technology aside, he tries his best to stay updated with the latest news about science, especially when it comes to physics, and economics.

 

He is also the owner of www.joaosimoes.net - a blog he recently started!
