My name is Hugo Lopes Tavares, and I am a Software Developer interested in Programming Languages, Testing-Driven Development, Web, Distributed Systems, System Administration, DevOps, Software Quality, and Agile Methods.
I also worked in the televenovelas team for a year at Globo.com (with Python + Django) before joining the Video team; we’ve built the admin and end-user web platform.
I started my career at NSI working for the Brazilian Government (using Python + Zope + Plone). I worked there for more than 2 years and learned a lot of what I know about software development. I dropped my bachelor degree in 2010 and started working for Globo.com.
I enjoy open source and have (co)authored and contributed to lots of projects:
References of my work in books and papers
Back in 2010, I and some NSI colleagues wrote a short paper about Behavior-Driven Development (A tool stack for implementing Behaviour-Driven Development in Python Language), and that showed some examples of how to do BDD in Python using tools we developed. That paper was later cited in the references of A Study of the Characteristics of Behaviour Driven Development, published by IEEE Computer Society.
