About

Some Things About Me

I'm Anderson Grüdtner Martins, Software Developer, passionate for Jesus and classical piano.

My first contact with software development was around 2002, when I was invited to develop a desktop system for a church using Delphi 6. Learned fast how to build algorithms and soon decided invest on that career.

I began my studies in Analysis and Development of Systems in 2003, when I faced the challenge of develop by myself an unusual kind of software for my course, an algorithm interpreter. After extensive resources and analyses I was able to design and develop a tool to improve the software development learning process. The tool should interpret a custom structured language, allow to parse, execute, show the result in a terminal, debug and translate algorithms in structured Portuguese language to Pascal. The tool was fully implemented, and I really enjoyed working on that project. My greatest accomplishment came in 2006, when my tool was used as a support tool for algorithm classes in two state universities: UNIPAR - Universidade Paranaense and in UEM - Universidade Estadual de Maringá.

Around 2008, I faced another challenge, design and develop a web tool that should allow the user to draw 3D projects for glass industries, and use them to automatic calculate measures and budgets only providing the width and height for the project. The tool was successfully implemented using Flash, Actions Script 3 and the Sandy 3D Engine.

Focused in web development since 2006, I can say that my professional career is divided in two parts: before and after Joomla. It was introduced me by a cousin and friend, who opened my eyes for a new business opportunity: extensions development. So, ever since, I have worked creating and maintaining Joomla components, modules, plugins and in a spare time, as a JUX member, I could contribute with the Joomla 3 project.

Working on many projects I had the opportunity to develop my skills in different areas, since linux servers installation and management, to systems analyses and development, databases, web services, API development and iOS apps, what allows me to have a deep comprehension of every new projects I work and its structures.

My Strongest Qualities?

  • Versatility
  • Creativity
  • Curiosity

I can easily adapt myself to unfamiliar languages, frameworks or technologies. I love to learn!
