My love for the Web began in 2006 when I was 15 years old when I finished a web design course. I bought some books about PHP and CSS and I decided to create a website for my chemistry teacher to help students on their studies. The website was a huge success and got thousands of users. As a result, I was in love with the idea that I could create an application that was helping so many people in Brazil and improve people’s lives. Although the website is out-of-date nowadays, it is still well visited and my professor still gets compliments on every single conference that she attends. I was determined to keep up with my studies on web development and study Computer Science in university.

In the academic world, I obtained a deep understanding of computers. I got prepared to deal with any technology of today or of tomorrow and even come up with a new one. I was no more a repeater, but a thinker. In 2013, I was awarded a scholarship to study at the University of Toronto and I was able to do an internship as a web developer with the IBM team of the Big Data University. I have had experience in several projects creating compilers, webbots, web crawlers and websites. My most recent work is TopProfessors.com, which was my graduation final project that I presented to an examination board composed of professors. I was invited to talk about this project on the CBC Radio and the monograph I wrote about it can be found at robertojunior.net/monograph.turally passionate.

What I Do ?

I have been working as a web developer since. I have a love of clean code, elegant styling, and I have lots of experience in the production modern and complex systems. I am a hardworking person, organized, determined, persistent and passionate. I believe those are the necessary ingredients to complete any project successfully. As a proof of my dedication and effort, I got my bachelor degree with Honours Summa Cum Laude for my excellent academic performance. I was first in class and chosen by coordinators, students, and professors to deliver the final graduation address.

    Designed and developed an online control panel for our security software SeVen that is a defense tool written in C++ for mitigating Application-Layer DDoS attacks. Developed robots to simulate users navigating on a website in order to test our security software efficiency and efficacy. Each robot receives a task and has to accomplish it successfully while a website's server is being attacked. Robots can give up on the task like normal users would do for many reasons like excessive number of reloads or long responses time.
