Google I/O 2015

Yesterday started the Google I/O 2015 with the latest news and services from Google. I’m a big fan of Google and a early adopter of all their services, because they are just like good design, incredibly cool and functional (actually the design itself is something I believe they could improve, even with the recent material design). The conference was mostly based in Android M, Google Pay, The [...]

Baia dos Anjos Website

Another Salworks website coming out. The first version of Baia dos Anjos was a website I’ve done almost 8 years ago and it was time for a refresh. The bar and concept have also changed and improved with the years and this time the website focus on the three important elements: the events, music and social media. The new events will be announced in the front-page with poster information and the [...]

Future Mood Wallpaper

To celebrate Adobe Photoshop 25th anniversary, I’m reposting an old wallpaper made more than 10 years ago. “Future Mood” is a mystic and simple wallpaper that allows a easy and clean icon titles in the desktop, a wallpaper still made with the old Photoshop 6.0. After all this years, a higher resolution version is in order, unfortunately I believe this will only happen in the next [...]

Windows 10 Technical Preview

Foi há dois dias que a Microsoft apresentou o seu novo sistema operativo Windows 10 e uma série de dispositivos e tecnologias associadas. Foi certamente uma lufada de ar fresco para a empresa e embora atrasados, pela primeira vez em muitos anos julgo que a Microsoft está novamente no caminho de apresentar algo de interessante a nível de software mas também de tecnologia, como é o caso do Microsoft [...]

Coding Work Interruptions

«Interruptions are to developers what kryptonite is to Superman—they kill productivity and there’s a significant recovery period». It happens all the time while I work, and sometimes can be extremely annoying and time wasting. Why developers hate being interrupted” is an excellent article by Derek Johnson that talks about the developers work process and the constant interruptions they’re [...]

Interstellar

Design, música, cinema, fotografia e vídeo. Todos os anos são milhares de trabalhos em várias vertentes artísticas que servem para inspirar, motivar ou simplesmente maravilhar. Em 2014 tive o privilégio de assistir no cinema ao Interstellar, que presentemente defino como o exponente máximo de qualidade cinematográfica. A história, a componente científica, o grafismo e claro, a banda sonora. [...]

Para além do «facelifting» visual, o novo painel de administração é mais leve e rápido de carregar e será responsive. Entendo que um website começa no seu back-office e é importante que esta mesma [...]

Paranoias Music Weekend

Just to announce that the old weekend music playlist that I posted here have moved to Paranoias in the weekly playlist “Paranoias Music Weekend“. Since Paranoias has much higher traffic levels it made all sense to share my musical likes there. It’s a rather extensive selection of tastes that ranges from chill-out to electronic and from 80’s remixes until today. For those with [...]
