Meet the team



Eduardo Piairo


Principal Engineer @ Devoteam that enjoys build pipelines, deliver software, and create communities.

Always ready to learn the path to production using source control, continuous integration and continuous delivery for applications, databases and infrastructure. The deployment pipeline is his favorite technical and cultural tool. AnythingOps approach enthusiast.


Miguel Alho


Full-time, 13-years-in-the-making, software engineer with a DevOps and Craftsmanship mindset. Previously, I worked mainly as a dev freelancer, but also as a consultant, school teacher, media producer and project manager.

I'm a very big fan of TDD as a development practice, very fond of microservices, of automating as much as possible in the dev, build and deploy pipeline, but also in finding ways to augment individual and team learning experiences.


Miguel David


Site Reliability Engineer at Harvest.

I deal mostly with AWS and GCP clouds, as well as automation tools like Ansible and Terraform, and the Kubernetes ecosystem. But really tend to focus on the best tool for the goal of the project I'm working with.


Ricardo Castro


Lead Site Reliability Engineer at Anova, working daily to build high performance, reliable and scalable systems.

A strong believer in culture and teamwork. Open source passionate, technical blogger and speaker, taekwondo amateur, and metal lover.

Rita Sousa

Infrastructure Engineer at Farfetch. I spent three years researching about Internet of Things, Machine Learning and Resource Management at CISTER Currently, I'm interested in learning more about DevOps and eager about new challenges mainly in automation and reliability.



Cesar Rodrigues


Software Engineer @ Mindera and more recently a learning father.

From time to time I enjoy to solve problems. On the other times I enjoy riding my bikes. If I had any other times I would enjoy being a professional cooker.


André Carmo


Senior Software Engineer for CI/CD, Pipelines and Automation @ Talkdesk, with a background on Test Automation tools and Infrastructure. I believe that tools are nothing without processes. But I also believe that "culture eats strategy for breakfast", which means that the way people interact and communicate helps to overcome any problem in software development. I'm always trying to build an interactive culture with the help of new testing tools and pipelines that work together with processes to make everyone happy and more productive in their jobs!

In my free time I'm a runner and a traveller.
