Rui PiresHi, my name is Rui Pires.

I am a Portuguese software developer based on a small volcanic island called Terceira, located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, in the Azores.

I’m currently working for Coriant, but also do some freelancing and personal projects on the side.

You can see these projects in the portfolio page, or if you want to work with me, have a look at the services page.

If you are curious, you can look at my LinkedIn profile, follow me on Twitter or on Google+.

I started programming in 1998,  and have been fascinated with it ever since.

I’m interested in modern C++ development, and have a particularly soft spot for indie game development. Indie Game development fascinates me because it requires a wide array of knowledge in different areas of computing (graphics, network, AI, UI, scripting, physics, etc), not to mention how satisfying it is to create something that is just fun to enjoy.
