About João!

I'm a game developer who happens to know how to program. I am a game jam nut and I also volunteer at A Ludoteca, organizing the monthly Game Dev meetings in Lisbon.

Currently I am a Unity 3D Developer at Virtuleap, working on Enhance, a VR brain training app.

I have a master's degree in Computer Engineering.

I have a passion for games: developing, playing and collecting.

Creativity is the biggest gift I can give others and that others can give me.

I love to travel and meet new people and places (30 countries so far)!

MY WORK EXPERIENCE

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

Since 2016, I've been part of A Ludoteca. A Ludoteca is a volunteer based organization, serving as activists and evangelists for the portuguese games' ecosystem. Our mission statement and goal is to bring together and nurture the game's development industry in Portugal.

Our main activities include:

  • Actively organizing meetups, game jams and other game development focused events.
  • Invest on education, by working with schools and communities to give rise to more and better games, share resources and create a meaningful heritage.
  • Partner with other organizations in the field to create an information sharing network, enhance each other’s capabilities and discover new initiatives.
  • Centralize all available information about what exists in Portugal: studios, developers, games, contacts, statistics, etc.
