Spoke about mental health
Failed At Something
I failed at finishing the blog series I was preparing. Burnout hit me, hard and I had to take a long break. Feels bad but at the same time, one's mental health should always be a priority!

Failed At Something


Introduction to Python

I went through the selection process to participate in the "Maria vai com as Devs" program 100% free in order to promote technical quality for insertion in the technology market, focused on the Python programming language. But I was in a very difficult time and I couldn't complete the course program :(

Started working towards my masters degree
Failed At Something
Applied my pre-project to the Master Degree Program in Design at Udesc - Universidade do Estado de Santa Catarina (Florianópolis/SC) for the Interfaces and Communication Interactions research line. I went to the first stage with the article and did not pass the cutting stage of the second stage, for the cutting vacancies. I still intend to study isolated subjects, as it was my own initiative to look for a master's course and it is the area in which I ended up working in recent years.

Article theme [in portuguese] "The importance of usability in interface design"

Participated in a Competition
Failed At Something
I participated in the competition between teams as soon as I joined the company, where we took tests, interacted with colleagues and learned about each other. I also created our team's identity. We weren't the winners, but it was a lot of fun.
Failed At Something
Folded Adfabriq. The global financial crisis was not kind, and I could not save or pivot the business (ask me about it).
Wrote a technical article

AWS App Runner First Impressions Blog
One of the harder and more interesting types of writing, detailing your thoughts on new technology (less than 24 hours post-release). Given my hope that it'll eventually supplant many Elastic Beanstalk deployments with substantially more powerful features, I bestowed it with the nickname Magic Beanstalk 🌱

Also ate a slice of humble pie, when the VP of Compute Services at AWS read my article and noted something I'd gotten wrong regarding Amazon Copilot (😨!). Gratefully accepted the feedback, and issued a correction. We learn more every day
