Who are you? What's your story?
My name is Paulo Gomes, I am from Portugal and moved to the UK with my wife in 2016 to join Appnovation crew.
I am an tech and web enthusiast since the 90's (so not too old and not too young), I graduated in Computers and Management in 2002, after that worked in many places and companies, as freelancer, trainer and teacher, software engineer, system tester, system integrator, system administrator, developer and web architect. That was an amazing journey and I’m happy I can remember every place and colleague like yesterday.
What's your role at Appnovation?
I am working as a Drupal Senior Developer, mostly involved in D8 projects with team lead responsibilities.
What's the greatest lesson you've learned in your professional career (or even personal life) that you would like to share with others?
I believe that we learn something new everyday, however the greatest lesson we can have is still to come.
What do you do outside of work?
I try to enjoy a bit of everything, mostly traveling, listening to music, watching a good movie, cooking or read something interesting.
Where do you hope to take your career at this point/what's next for you in your professional career?
My ambition is to be able to provide more value in the initial phase of a project, so probably working more on the architecture side of things.
*BONUS* What are some fun/random facts about you that many may not know?
I am a big fan of Apple design and products for a very long time (since the first iMac G3), however I used an “hackintosh” for few years, and only moved to an iPhone some months ago.
