About me

My name is Marcio Frayze David and I am the author of the project segunda.tech. You can read the articles I wrote in english here.

I have been developing software for over a decade and have been working as a systems analyst at the Brazilian Federal Data Processing Service (SERPRO) since 2009, where I help several teams to implement solutions for clients such as the Brazilian Internal Revenue Service (Receita Federal) and the National Traffic Secretariat (SENATRAN).

One of the projects I helped develop was the Digital Transit Wallet (CDT) App.

Although I spend most of my time developing softwares for the backend, I also develop frontends and mobile apps (for iOS and Android).


Technologies

Java

This programming language has been present for most of my career and I keep studying it and perfecting my skills.

JavaScript

Main language I use to develop frontends together with with vue.js, hyperapp and react.

Flutter / Kotlin / Swift

I had the opportunity to participate in the development of some mobile applications using various technologies, the main one being the framework Flutter.

Clojure

I really like this language and I’m the creator of the course Clojure: Introduction to Functional Programming.

Ruby

In the past I have used this language a lot and even created a web framework with it.

Elm

Although I haven’t used it in any major project, this is my favorite programming language and I really admire its community.

Elixir

I’m still new to this language, but I’m currently studying it through the book Programming Phoenix.

Haskell

I’m new to this language, but I admire the ideas and conceptions behind it. Studying it has helped me better understand the functional paradigm and have helped me become a better programmer in general.

Docker / Kubernetes

I work with DevOps practices, which requires a certain knowledge in this technologies, but it’s a subject I’m still on an intermediate level.


Interests

I listed just a few of the various technologies I studied throughout my career, but I’ve always prioritized the concepts above all else. So, I pay special attention to the studies of paradigms and good programming practices.
For many years my focus was on object-oriented programming, but in recent years I have also begun to study a lot about the functional paradigm.
In addition, I am interested in extreme programming (XP) and software architecture.


Studies

I keep up to date through several different sources, including taking online courses on platforms such as Alura, PluralSight, Coursera and egghead.io, but my favorite source still remains the books. That’s why I created a podcast to talk only about the books that influenced my career. I am also one of the founders of p de Podcast (p is for Podcast), a podcast (in brazilian portuguese) where we talk about Software Architecture and good programming practices.
