About me

Filipe Duarte

Hi, Iโ€™m Filipe. Iโ€™m a Software Engineer, from Portugal, currently living in London, building stuff for Paddle. Hereโ€™s a few more bits about me.




๐Ÿ’ผ Currently a Senior Software Engineer at Paddle. Previously built UWP apps at UI Centric and Nodes. You can find more details in my resume page (or download it).

๐ŸŽ“ Obtained an MSc in Computer Science from the University of Aveiro, in Portugal. My masterโ€™s thesis project invovled developing means of interaction with large public displays, and the code is here.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป I enjoy building things. A did quite a bit of UWP development for a while and some of that is available in my Projects page. More recently I have spent some time learning new things and some experiments can be found on github.

๐Ÿ’Ž I am an avid reader and a regular at the movies. I also might have spent an hour too many in some videogames. A self-taught guitarist and a regular at rock gigs. Also theatre. I enjoy travelling and going to theme parks - cannot get enough of roller coasters. Average bodyboarder and passable skier. Love a good burger.

๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚โ€ I like keeping fit. I probably spend a lot more time than I should at my local crossfit box. I also frequently sign up to muddy obstacle course races.

๐ŸŒ Born in Canterbury but lived in Portugal most of my life. Moved to London for work in 2012 with the intention of trying other countries over time but Iโ€™m still here.
