I am the creator of the Elixir programming language, developed as part of my work as the Director of R&D at Plataformatec, and an active member of the Open Source community.
I am also part of the Rails Core Team since early 2010 and author of “Crafting Rails Applications”, a book that covers the internals of Rails beyond the basics. I have also received the Ruby Hero Award as a recognition for my work on other Open Source projects.
I graduated in Engineering at Escola Politécnica de São Paulo (Brazil) and have a Machine Learning master’s degree from Politecnico di Torino, in Italy.
I am frequently travelling around the globe speaking at conferences and doing consultancy work. Check out Plataformatec website if you’d like to work together: http://plataformatec.com/
