Lisbon is the warm and sunny capital city of Portugal, and the largest city in the country. Rich in culture and architecture, it is one of the oldest European cities, which over time was known by many names such as Luxbona, Lixbuna or Ulixbone (names which gave way to the commonly used LX shorthand). Along it's seven hills, while walking along the cobbled streets known as Calçada Portuguesa, you will find amazing food, amazing architectural relics and various museums. And don't forget to stroll along the Tagus river, the narrow streets of Alfama, vist the nightlife of Bairro Alto, the classic and elegant stores of Chiado or the gardens of Belém. And while you're at it, do not forget to try some Pastéis de Belém!

I’ve been programing since I was a little kid; my professional career started with doing contract web development work while I was in college. In 2011 I was working on a project that really needed node.js. But as all developers working on that project were using windows we were unable to use it, so I started porting it to windows as a side project. Soon after I was hired by Rackspace to dedicate all my time to node.js and finish the job. That was how I became one of the first node core contributors. Nowadays I am working at Cloud9 IDE in Amsterdam, who generously let me work on making node more awesome.
