Improving developer experience on Windows

Posted by – September 2, 2017

Today I spent sometime doing coding on Windows, but after some hours a question came up: “Should I do everything on GUI only?”

Of course not! With help of chocolatey, there’s a lot of apps that can be installed to make coding on terminal much more easier, I found few of them and I would like to share with you now:


The most portable terminal emulator for Windows, very clean interface, it allows split windows, has tab navigation support and alias for several commands like ls, clear and other commands that you type on Mac or Linux and eventually type on Windows by mistake :D

You can install it via

choco install cmder


Its a very modern console text editor, it has syntax highlight support for up to 90 languages! It also has support for very common keystrokes like Ctrl + S to save, Ctrl + C to copy, and Ctrl + Q to exit the editor.

choco install micro

There’s a lot of other alternatives for terminal emulator like ConsoleZ and ConEmu, same for text editors, like nano, but I stronly suggest take a look on these two, they are very modern, clean and easy to use.


Professional improvements with MOOCs

Posted by – December 27, 2015

Learn new technologies by its own is cheap, useful and helps a lot towards professional success, but I believe it isn’t enough, there few other things that you can do to increase your chances of growth.

In the latest year I started a journey across several tools for online learning, so far EDX and Coursera has been proven the best solutions found for this purpose.

The main goal on the next year is continue using this tools and learn more about some areas like management using these solutions and as soon as I can go over some University programs like the ones provided my Berkleley and its IDPs.

Google Chrome and Web Experience

Posted by – September 3, 2008

Today I downloaded the first public version of Google Chrome, a brand new browser from Google, at first moment Google Chrome looks really good, with a very clean user interface, google usability and a organized interface, I could use GMail and iGoogle without any problems, Chrome can render several other websites and gracefully pass acid2 test,but only passed 79 of 100 of acid3 tests, is it a WebKit limitation? :D

The only html element that did’t worked as expected was the form input file, I cound’t see the text box of this input element anywhere on the page, only a label that is rendered after the button used to open the dialog window to select the file to upload.

For my JSF applications Chrome worked like a charm, I couldn’t find anything wrong, the autocomplete feature that uses scriptaculous worked without any problems.
