Welcome to my corner of the internet! My name is João Ventura and I'm a computer engineer and web developer from Portugal. Currently, I'm an adjunct CS teacher in the Polytechnique Institute of Setúbal, where I've been teaching the Operating Systems and Model-Driven Development courses.

Career-wise, I started freelancing in 2003, and in 2009, after teaching computer science classes since 2006 I was granted a Ph.D scholarship. In 2010 I created Skyplux, a web application and in 2014 I started Flatangle, a web startup. After working as a backend Django developer in a financial startup, I worked breafly again as freelancer until 2016.

I have a PhD in Computer Science from Universidade Nova de Lisboa, where I have published work on Text-Mining - Natural Language Processing. I am also an amateur trombone player and a paraglider pilot with a personal record of 123 km in a cross-country unpowered flight.
