Introduction to Sonatype Nexus

Sometime ago, I faced a challenge while managing a software project. Because the client where I was working had many developer team providers, the projects were in several technologies and, let’s face it, working with teams that don’t have any structure and organisation is a pain in the butt.

So, I start wondering around the Internet for an infrastructure where I could have all “projects” artefacts, regardless of the technologies used. I found a few of them by my choice fall into Nexus Repository OSS[1] version 3.x.

Why my choice? Well for three main reasons:



Gerir a Qualidade do Código

language: Portuguese

Vamos dar uma martelada? Quem nunca ouviu esta expressão enquanto trabalhava numa aplicação, quer seja no seu desenvolvimento, quer seja na sua manutenção. Este tipo de prática não abona em nada as nossas aplicações e com o tempo acaba por ser um procedimento, uma feature da aplicação que não nos conseguimos livrar.

Este simples exemplo, é apenas um num enorme lote de más práticas que são realizados ao longo dos tempos em muitos projetos. Como fica a nossa aplicação, a sua performance, o seu grau de manutenção, de legibilidade? Podemos dizer que a aplicação tem qualidade?

Quando falamos de qualidade, do que nos estamos a referir? O que é a Qualidade? O que é a Qualidade de uma aplicação? Como podemos medir? Como a podemos gerir?

A estas, e outras questões que possam surgir, é o tema deste artigo.

New Year, New Life, Same dedication


It’s been for quite some time since my last post. Much has happen since late 2014.

In the last 18 months:

  • Founded the ISCTE ACM Student Chapter
  • Became Vice Chair of the Chapter
  • Became Chairman of the Chapter
  • Finish all my masters courses
  • Start my thesis
  • Organised  and co-organised almost 50 technological events
  • Hosted everyone of them
  • Became Event Liaison at Comunidade Netponto
  • Change job twice
  • Received over 30 job proposals
  • Developed a social project
  • Finish two job project, currently surviving in third
  • Speaker at two conference sessions
  • Meet great people
  • Had lots of fun

Now at the beginning of 2016 my goals are more challenging, more bold and daring.

This year my top priority is finish my thesis. It’s a great project, something that I had in mind for some years and with the support of my family, friends and my college thesis supervisor, I took a change and gave the step forward. But in my thesis diary you should know what all is about.

Although my thesis is priority 1, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, I also have some activities scheduled. I’ll be speaker of one or two conferences sessions, I’ll write one or two scientific papers, I’ll propose a RFC, I’ll co-organise few technological events.

After all this, what i’ll do? Well, relaxe is out of the equation 🙂

meet you soon!
