My first computer was the old TK-85 (a Brazilian ZX-81 clone). I’ve learned BASIC at the age of 13. I enjoyed it so much that I ended up graduating in Computer Science at UFPE. My first job was not usual. I was hired to develop embedded software and device drivers using Assembly and C. From there, I have migrated to other platforms and languages. Since 2017 I have been working in Nubank, using microservices architecture and Clojure. Besides the work at Nubank, I’m also one of the Podebug podcast hosts and write for this blog. My name is Luiz Borba.
