You are most Welcome here 🙇🏻♂️
I’m Paulo Alberto Simões, yes Paulo + Alberto, and I also love to use my “second” name because it’s my dad’s name, whom I have as an example, and I try to make him proud beside God. Just for help, Simões is a Portuguese surname and uses tilde. Yeah.. it is difficult to pronounce, but don’t worry – Paul, Pablo, Paolo, Simons, all is fine for me; what matters is to be kind.
Empowering developers worldwide to deliver better software faster, scalable in the Cloud has been my focus for the last years. Also, my passion for software engineering focuses on Cloud and Java technologies. My experience is mainly in transactional and high-performance applications and integration in telco, e-commerce, finances industries.
In Oracle for 15 years, I had the opportunity to navigate in different positions, but my last 6 months, I met my dream job; I moved to Developer Evangelist, dedicating my time to help developers and data specialists to give a deep dive into microservices and event-driven architectures, event mesh approach and converged Oracle Database to simplify the construction of scalable and resilient solutions.
I love mentoring, teaching, speaking at conferences, and working with communities, especially around Java, where I perform as a JUG leader Java at Rio / SouJava Rio and speaker. Also, I was a proud founder of Official Hyperledger Foundation Brazilian Chapter, and CNCF Community leader and speaker.
I’m a proud son of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, where I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and was lucky enough to learn and help build a parallel operating system in C++, which forged my career as a software craftsman. Since that incredible moment, it’s been around 25 years dedicated to helping to build solutions in different sectors, with different architectures and approaches. But the most crucial thing in this professional life was the opportunity to meet very diverse, incredible, and brilliant people from practically all corners of the world 🌎.
I was born and live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 🇧🇷 but I also have the honor of being a Citizen of Portugal 🇵🇹. And my personal time is reserved for my beloved wife and my princess and my puppy, a very funny golden retriever. And, my hobbies are playing with my princess 👸🏻, traveling ✈️, and reading my books 📚.
God bless you all 🙏🏻.
