About

Hi I’m Manuel 👋🏻

I’m a freelance Project Manager and (occasional) Swift Developer from Lisbon, Portugal. If I’m not in front of a computer I’m probably reading (pardon the cliché but it’s true) or moving out and about. You can find my poor adepts of taking good photos on my instagram page or just interact on twitter.

Some ask if my name shouldn’t be Gomez. The short answer is that I’m Portuguese and that’s how my name is spelled here. The long answer can be found on Wikipedia (where all good answers live). There you can find that:

It derived from the given name Gomes, which derived from the Visigothic word guma, meaning “man”

… as well as that I’m not (yet) in the Notable people list.

 

About this Site

This is a place for me to write about stuff that I find interesting or something that I think it good for you to know. I currently support comments, although everyone tells me that I should disable them. I’ll monitor and remove anything that I feel is not appropriate, so please be respectful.

And if you didn’t notice by now, I’m not a native English speaker. I’ll do my best to make things interesting, but pardon anything that feels off.

My views are my own and all the stuff I write about is based purely on my interests at the time, but I only recommend stuff that I’ve used, done or read.

I use affiliate links for Amazon and iTunes products, meaning that I’m just telling them you come from this site. It’s a good way for you to support me without having to do anything.

 

Technical Details

For those of you that like to know these things, I’m currently using WordPress hosted on dominios.pt. I moved from bluehost.com mainly due to cost since dominios.pt has a cheeper option and I can have support in Portuguese.

I manage all my domains on hover.com.

 

Past Projects

I try to keep my LinkedIn page updated with all I’m up to, but I also do some side projects when I find the time here and there.

 

AnyRead

I’ve worked in a Mobile RSS Reader called AnyRead until the end of 2017.
