Due to my Academic background on Mathematics, Computer Science, and lately on Communication Sciences, always been a big enthusiast about everything related with Multimedia and Internet.
For more than 2 decades aside my work as a freelance multimedia developer, always have been there trying to transmit my knowledge to the future generations, as a teacher on some professional schools, as a consultant and trainer in IT companies or Digital Agencies, as a speaker on national and international events, as an attendee on events all around the world, as a trainer on universities lecturing workshops.
Being a Multimedia developer, I worked with the major Digital Agencies in Portugal, which forces me to be always watchful to the new technological innovations and aware of the new tools on the market.
Since the beginning I always have use Macromedia, and in consequence Adobe Tools to develop all kinds of Digital and Multimedia solutions for the Web, like, Dreamweaver, Flash, Flex, Fireworks, EDGE Tools, among others.
To be recognized and show my dedication to continual skills growth, I test myself and oblige myself to be an Adobe Certified Expert on these tools.
Consequently one of my passions is trying to transmit my humble knowledge to students, so as I said before I’m in the last decades also been an independent Adobe certified Instructor, teaching around 1000 hours/year, with excellent results as you can see on my Linkedin Profile.

I met João a few years ago, as one of his students and I consider him to be a very passionat and talented trainer. On a more personal note, João is definitely an upbeat person, always happy to help and share knowledge with those around him. Be sure of positive outcome when working with João.

I knew João Gonçalves when he was a trainer in an course of 450 hours led through a period of four months. He is an expert in the construction of Web Pages. He has a visible passion for his work. His enthusiasm is constagious. While he teaches, he is creative, inventive and joyful. I can make a rather simple consideration: My vision about computers and my interest in the world of Internet has changed since I knew João. After you end up working with him, he remains a reliable adviser, someone you can always reach in search of a meaningful opinion.
