Hi👋🏻, my name is Ricardo Belinha and I'm a Software Specification Engineer at Nokia.
My story with computers 👩🏻💻 and coding goes way back into my childhood 🧒, when I had my first computer at 6 years old, allowing me to discover programming as a child and recognizing it as my passion since the first moment. Throughout high school, I chose to study in a professional course in Informatics Technician in Computer Systems Management and Programming 💻 and it was the spark ✨ I was missing ignited the instant I got a maximum grade in the Programming class; back then I was learning Visual Basic. I really fell more and more in love with writing code and since then, I cannot get enough.
I was given the opportunity to enter the European Computer Science course 🌍 that provided me with a double bachelor's degree from Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Coimbra in Portugal and West University of Timișoara in Romania.
I am currently doing a master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence and Distributed Computing at the West University of Timișoara, on the way to acquiring more knowledge in my field.
Software development 💻 calls to all my passions; it incorporates analytical and problem-solving skills and I am allowed to break the code to improve it (in a separate Git branch, of course). I love applying object-oriented programming principles and some design patterns to make my applications being easily understandable by any developer around the world. It is oddly satisfying. I think in a way I am kind of like those applications; I am capable of fulfilling the hardest tasks, but I still keep my simplicity when it comes to interacting.
Nokia allows me to grow both personally and professionally, and leave a mark in the world of programming. 🌐
Like what I do or I have helped you in the past? I'd be happy to receive a ☕ from you🤗
