    Network Administrator/Programmer/Audio Engineer

    Brazil - Last active: 18 hours ago - Tests: 4

    I'm a network manager and programmer with experience in several different scenarios, and also an audio engineer. As a network manager I've worked with several different servers and services, from low-end to high-end. Although I'm not specialized in any server or service in specific, my experience is mostly in dealing with small to mid-size companies with a large number of services. I can also provide consulting for basic network security, mostly related to social engineering. As a programmer I'm specialized in C++, but I'm also skilled in several different programming languages, such as C, Java, Python, Matlab, Shell, Asterisk, VHDL and Assembly. I also have experience with the libraries Allegro and OpenGL and in programming simple AIs (Artificial Intelligence). This indirectly means I'm also a game programmer, despite I don't have a vast experience in this field in specific. As a programmer I have a more performance-oriented focus and I prefer a low-level programming approuch. I also comment the code extensively. I also possess business planning knowledge, proved by my test score, so I'll be a valuable addition to any work that has a closer bond to business scenarios. I don't work in strictely business planning jobs though. I also have a vast knowledge and experience in sound engineering, so I'm be able to work with sound editing, mixing, basic post-processing and restoration. However in overall I do not work with sound system and technology creations, designs and implementations. I may ocasionaly do in few exceptions though, so this can be discussed further. I also work with english-brazilian portuguese translations. This also includes technical translation depending of the subject and/or purpose, despite I do not have certification for governmental purposes (i.e. diploma/transcripts translation for immigration purposes). Please get into contact for further information regarding technical translation if needed. I can also work with creation of video subtitles, karaoke included, as long the text is provided and the expected output is in Advanced SubStation Alpha format (.ass file format). I can make very simple effects or implement a previously programmed effect if requested, however I cannot render the video with the subtitles (hardsubbing).
