Hello! My name is João Pedro Dias and I'm 22 years old. I'm attending the 5th year of MSc in Informatics and Computing Engineering at the Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto. Since I was a young boy, I was passionate about knowing how stuff works independently of the scientific field. Nowadays that passion remains with a strong technology component, but without leaving aside other areas like physics, astronomy and mathematics. So, basically, I've always wanted to be an engineer and later on, informatics looked seemed like a great choice. I like to consider myself a jack-of-all-trades with a greater interest in Back-end Web Development, Artificial Intelligence, Information Security and Internet of Things. Additionally, I'm very interested in team leading and coordination using agile methodologies. Over the years I had the opportunity to take part in a large amount of conferences and competitions (and even won some of them), worked as volunteer in event coordination and was in the executive committee of the IEEE Student Branch of Universidade do Porto for two years. Along side that I also accomplished two summer internships in the informatics area. Out of working hours, I love to photograph, digital design and learn what's out of the box. Greetings, João Pedro Dias
