Ana Sofia Reis

hardly described in few words!

I'm passionate about life, love and travelling. I'm as geek as a computer engineer can be, but not the kind that lives in a basement coding or playing games all the time, I actually love being around other people... and sunlight! (Oh and don't get me wrong, I'm also a bit of a game geek! Heh!)

As regards work, I'm doing web development as a freelancer, mainly using HTML, CSS, PHP and WordPress (hacking and creating themes, plugins, shortcodes... you name it, I've done it!).

Please get in touch through Twitter or send me an email to anasofiagfr@gmail.com

See you soon! :D

Freelance

Freelance, Coimbra

I've been working on projects for several clients as a freelancer.

Most of them consist of front-end development on WordPress websites, using mainly CSS, HTML and PHP. I usually have to hack themes so that they fit the clients requests and also to hack plugins, create shortcodes and new templates.

I also work a lot with the Advanced Custom Fields plugin, which allows me to create pretty neat stuff on the frond-end.

Other plugins I have experience with are WPML and WooCommerce.

Co-founder / Community Manager

Connect Coimbra, Coimbra

Connect Coimbra is much more than just a coworking space, it's a community, it's a place to exchange ideas, to do some networking, to enjoy your work and to be productive, it's also a place to have fun, watch footbal games, have a dinner (including dessert competitions) and much, much more!

I happen to be one of the two people who embarked on this incredible journey of creating Connect Coimbra.
Working here means giving as well as receiving, I make sure our sense of community stays strong and the community gives me in return a sense of belonging, job connections and opportunities and sometimes even good friends.
