  • Cronus Emulator (Development)

    I have worked for a few years (2007-2012) on a Brazilian Ragnarok Online emulator which is written in C. It was voluntary work and the emulator was a Brazilain fork from eAthena, an international emulator.

    I worked there as an English-Portuguese translator at first. Then I started developing the emulator's scripts with a custom scripting language. Simultaneously, I started studying C by myself and with help of the C community. Finally, I started working as a developer, working on the emulator's core, making improvements, adding new features, and fixing bugs.

    After a couple of years, I started coordinating the development team and helping to manage the community.

  • WAsteroids (Development)

    A simple Asteroids implementation in C.

  • VotaFacil (Development)

    An election system made in 2011. It simulates the Brazilian voting machine, with functionalities like:
    1. Add candidates.
    2. Add voters.
    3. Start an election (keep track of the current year to select the kind of election).
    4. Get the election status.
    5. Keep track of past elections (stores data on a simple text file).

  • Snake AI (Development)

    A simple AI to play the Snake Game, made in Python. The game implements a neural network that uses genetic algorithms to play the game.

  • Linear System Solver (Development)

    A simple program to solve linear system equations written in Rust in 2016. It used Rust v1.12.0.

  • Osciloscope Draw System (Development)

    As a final project for the VLSI IC Projects class, our class had to implement an oscilloscope on an FPGA. The students were divided into groups and each group had to implement one piece of the oscilloscope.

    My group had the mission of implementing the drawing component. We were responsible for receiving the input pixels, lines, rectangles, or area coordinates and to show on an LCD display the corresponding geometric figure.

    The project was implemented on SystemVerilog on an ALTERA DE0-Nano FPGA.

  • Remote Temperature and Luminosity Control (Development)

    In 2012, I developed a temperature and luminosity control system for embedded systems.

    A user, using a remote control, would set the desired temperature and luminosity threshold. The in-place system would then activate the lights or cooling systems when the luminosity or temperature would fall below or above the set thresholds. The remote communication feature was made using RFID and the project was implemented in C and Assembly.

  • PCI Compliant Infrastructure (Other amazing things)

    I worked on this from April to August 2017. I designed and implemented a PCI-compliant infrastructure that was plugged into an existing API to abide compliance specifications. I worked with Go, Node.js, and Shell Scripting (programming technologies). I also developed with TerraForm, Packer, Ansible, and Docker for the infrastructure tech.
