Fred was my right hand at Hotel Ninjas Product & Engineering.
Not only is he a skilled technical person, but he is also the best agile
advocate I've ever met. Thanks to Fred we managed to run two development
teams at an ever increasing productivity with very little waste.
The teams were motivated and happy thanks to how Fred engineered
our working process and environment.
Frederico is an agile driven professional.
His passion toward his work is shown in everyday moments.
Being contagious to everyone around him, Frederico never forgets that
he's surrounded by people at their most elementary state, as humans.
Domingos Bruges, Engineering Director at Mobbit
I have enjoyed the years of working together with Frederico
and admired his wide knowledge of UI design and UX.
He takes initiative and responsibility in an exemplary way,
getting well along with people around.
Frederico has excellent communication skills, and he can boost also the
people around to strive for the highest quality.
Frederico was my first truly agile mentor (...) He knows how to empower the people under his supervision. I also learned a lot from his technical skills, his will to learn new things constantly and his passion for presentations and conferences. After working with him I just can say that I am a better developer, architect and engineer that I was before. I wish there were more people like him.
Miguel Garcia Puyol, Software Engineer at ChangeYourFlight
Working with Frederico was a great and enriching experience. He successfully applied during teaching the knowledge and skills related to the agile project management. Enthusiastic students and highly valued classes was a constant during his period as lecturer in Agile Methodologies at La Salle Barcelona. Dedicated and trustful, you can always count on Frederico.
