Hello World, I'm Nelson Neves from Protugal, a C++ Software Developer, Electronic Hobbyist, Microcontroller Geek, Linux Embedded Hardware Fan, a proud Geek/Maker and a 3D Printer Lover.
I'm currently doing C++ Software Development for the win32 platform, but am a long time Linux lover and addicted to new technology software/hardware, with a strong tendency to web technology. Consider myself as an open-source-minded kind of guy, really enjoy a nice geek talk! Also have an Academic background on electronics/microcontrollers which helps me to discover my hardware geek side! In my free times I tend to make some research/prototyping on microcontrollers and Linux Embedded hardware, getting the 2 worlds together and mixing some web technology in the middle to make it more interesting (inspired in some of 'the internet of things' ideas). Here are some of my accomplishments:
Win32 C++ Client Management application "Client Prospect Marketing" developed for "Marriott Hotels" Sales Management Team in UK, supporting Oracle 10g, Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and Borland Interbase Database Engines. Client Prospect Marketing
Development of a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) module for Profile Management integration with other applications using Win32 C++ Dynamic-link library module.
Electronic Communications Interface for Emails, SMS and Fax services:
"ClubCare" suite software for Modules Management/Customization designed for the "Aberdeen Marina Club" in Hong Kong.
Development of Custom Reports using internal Engine/Viewer solution based on List&Labels.
Development of a Preferences Questionnaire Win32 C++ Dynamic-link library module for a Survey functionality.
Development of the Real Estate back-end search engine with PHP/MySQL and integration with a back-office Real Estate Management Software. Real Estate Search Engine
Prototyping ideas with MBED ARM Cortex-M3 NXP LPC1768 http://mbed.org/users/botdream/programs/
Starting to explore open source solutions for the NXP microcontrollers (compile source code in Linux using cross-toolchain)
Testing R2C2 3d printer controller board based on NXP ARM microcontroller for a CNC project: R2C2 3D Printer OpenSource/OpenHardware Controller Board
Here is my collection of Linux Embedded boards: (Linksys NSLU2, Bifferboard, Guruplug, RaspberryPi, Olinuxino Micro, BeagleBoneBlack, TP-Link WR703N, Carambola2) Linux Embedded Boards Collection
NSLU2 NAS interface upgraded with Linux Debian firmware: NSLU2 Upgrade History
Some of my Bifferboard wiki contribuitions:
WebInterface for the R2C2 3d Printer board using a RaspberryPI+Node.js: R2C2_WebInterface
Remote control appliances via WebInterface by using a RaspberryPi + Node.js + GPIO Relay control board Raspberrypi_GPIO
Remote control appliances via Google Talk Bot (XMPP) by using a RaspberryPi + Node.js + GPIO Relay control board RaspberrypiGPIOnjsbot
