About

My name is Carlos Eduardo Gonçalves, born March 22, 1989 in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal. I'm a graduated M.Sc. Computer and Telematics Engineer from University of Aveiro. My current interests are on FOSS, Cloud Computing, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), and Software-defined Networking (SDN).

I have been involved in a several FOSS projects over the years — some have ended, others just started. For instance, I'm a openSUSE Member since the beginning of its existence contributing mostly on packaging, translations to Portuguese, and bug reporting; also involved in Smolt with the GUI interface, minor bug fixing, and KSmolt (KDE notifier to easily send users' profile to Smolt servers). Recently I started contributing to the PySide project with Qt bindings and packaging for the most worldwide used RPM Linux distributions — openSUSE, Fedora, and Mandriva.

I'm an associate member of Grupo Linux da Universidade de Aveiro (GLUA) since 2007, and of Oeste Digital Network (ODN) since 2006. During my graduation I was invited to join Instituto de Telecomunicacoes as a research in the Heterogeneous Networking Group (HNG) now known as Advanced Telecommunications and Networks Group (ATNoG), group of which I presently still am involved in working on projects in the area of Cloud Computing and SDN/NFV. As a researcher my activities include developing new solutions on Open Source technology platforms such as OpenStack, OpenDaylight and CloudFoundry.
