Open Academy and KDE

December 26, 2013

It has been a while that I don’t write here but I thought this subject was worth it 🙂 Open source is a huge part of Facebook engineering. Whether we’re building new data infrastructure tools like Corona and Presto to manage our warehouses on Hadoop, releasing a new mobile build tool like Buck, or improving PHP runtime with HHVM, open source projects […]


Big changes!

May 8, 2012

After 5 wonderful years working with passionate and skilled people I am now moving to São Paulo to work at Facebook’s office for Latin America. My official role will be Partner Engineer. This doesn’t mean that I will go away from KDE, neither from Qt. It just means that I will contribute more on my […]


Back to life!

November 21, 2011

I am back from my honeymoon and I’m starting to organize my life again! Meanwhile, we finally released a game that I’m really proud that is called “Incredible Circus”. It’s the kind of game that is really addictive :). In three weeks we achieved 200k downloads on Nokia Store and today is available for the […]


It has been a while

September 14, 2011

It has been a while since my last post and a lot happened in the meantime. Just to point a few (in no special order): 11th February for Nokia; Tokamak; GSoC; Qt Contributor Summit; Qt Open Governance announced; Desktop Summit; Release of N9; Google acquired Motorola; Plasma Active; Netflix in Brazil; Use of Tiny Tiny RSS […]


kdeplasma-addons is on git too

February 1, 2011

Today we finally converted kdeplasma-addons to git 🙂 The rules itself were written some time ago and we waited for the conversion of kdelibs and kdebase. Thanks to eean I found a last minute problem on the rules and today we fixed that! You can find kdeplasma-addons on and you can easily clone the […]


Small update for ‘share’ dataengine

January 8, 2011

Following the awesome work done by our sysadmins, I implemented a backend for the share data engine that supports the use of KDE’s official pastebin service: . This way people using trunk will already have this support upstream and people using earlier versions (which includes 4.6 !) can also use the script provided by […]


The bad side of “The Cloud”

December 15, 2010

Since some time ago I started to worry that some “vital” information for me was on the “The Cloud” and that most of the service providers didn’t provide a way to retrieve my stuff or a support line. I started to worry also about privacy for the first time in my life: what if companies […]


KDE Mobile Sprint and MeeGo

November 21, 2010

Yep, I didn’t blog about MeeGo Conference yet. But come on, a lot happened during the last few days 😛 I barely had time to sleep really well (those that know me can tell histories about my sleep-walking and sleep-talking hehe). However, just to keep everybody updated before I do a full post or read […]


Sharing articles using Akregator

October 22, 2010

A month ago I integrated into Akregator the “share” feature that uses Plasma’s microblog service to help you to share news with your friends using the microblog services ( and twitter). The good thing about using is that all your data belong to you 😉 and you can easily replicate your posts to twitter […]


I am part of the game!

August 29, 2010

There are several ways of being part of the KDE game: you can develop, translate, be an artist, help users, take care of our infrastructure, organize developer sprints. A lot of ways right? But some people just lack the time to join the game in any of the areas that I just listed but still […]
