Bigger, better but friendly as always! This is how I would describe the third edition of the Coding Portugal Tour. We were really excited about this one because there were some untested new things that we wanted to introduce.

This edition would add the beautiful city of Coimbra to the tour, we would have Porto as the first “community organized” Coding Portugal meetup, we would add a Blockchain Discussion Panel to the Faro event and we would have three talks in one event for the first time, in Lisbon.


Do you know how a developer goes in an adventure? He packs a week of clothes and a mac into a backpack, a trolley full of Coding Portugal giveaways, a rollup bag with the Coding Portugal logo, and embarks on an 8 days tour through the lovely country of Portugal to organize the most developer-friendly meetup ever. But this tour started to take shape way before that…

Origins

Three months ago, on March 2019, three adventure seekers, decided that they would start a meetup that would work as a hub to unite developers from all skill levels, where everyone would feel…

Preface

Yap! I made it! I’m a Web Developer working for a pretty cool German company in the sunny Algarve (Portugal). I get to play with awesome shiny new tech, in an environment flourishing with talent and creativity. When I need to relax I can go downstairs and play a match of tennis…


On the 21st of March, I was lucky enough to be representing Turbine Kreuzberg at Pixels Camp in Lisbon (Portugal) with a teammate called Patrícia Ribeiro. There we found an amazing venue filled with all sorts of cool thing to do. For a free event, Pixels Camp went straight to the top of our list of events to attend next year.

What’s the purpose of Pixels Camp?

The main purpose of Pixels Camp is the 48h hackathon. Developers from all over Europe stop their lives for 3 days, to work on a common project and feel the adrenaline of presenting it to over 1250 fellow programmers…

I have the privilege of working with the most amazing individuals, in a friendly working environment that embraces innovation and loves challenges. I get to grow my skills as a developer, as a team player, and as a person.

With some friends, we won two hackathons and we got to donate part of the prize to the local firefighter’s department. We are helping other students that are learning to code in local study groups. …

In this tutorial, I will guide you through the process of containerizing a React FrontEnd, a Node/Express API, and a MongoDB database using Docker containers in a very simple way.

I won’t go into much detail about how to work with any of the technologies. Instead, I will leave links, in case you want to learn more about any of them.

The objective is to give you a practical guide of how to containerize this simple Full-Stack App, to be used as a starting point, for you to build your own apps.

Why should you care about Docker?

Docker is simply one of the most important…
