It’s been roughly a week since we held the first edition of the Future.Works Tech Conference. In 2020, this was the first time that we decided to create an event focused on specific technologies. It was a new experience for us but we believe it went quite well.

The two programming languages that were the focus of the conference are Java & JavaScript.

We managed to get a cool lineup of speakers for both days with a broad range of topics and insights about these two. Let’s take a look at what we’ve learned?

1st Day — Java

On December 9, we started the…


It has been a couple of weeks since we hosted a group of incredible and happy people as you can see above. The Goal? Provide you with all the necessary information for you to take control of your career from the start. We believe we did our part, but are you taking that control with the advice we gave? Let’s recap that advice once again and highlight the tips you need to use now.

Day 1:

“I was always very good at knowing what I didn’t want to do, I wasn’t so good at figuring out what I wanted to do.” …


Can you believe that more than 60% of the year is completed? I know that for some of us it seems like 2020 is taking a long time to pass, but at the same time, I feel like it’s going really fast. Do any of you feel the same? Anyway, watching the Champions League matches happening right now, even with all this is one of the easiest ways for me to manage my stress. And yes, I do miss playing football with friends!

But enough with the ramble, what happened this week?


Damn, it’s hot outside. Summer is definitely here, and the Out-of-Office emails are back again. Is it only me that deep inside hates to receive out of office emails? Thanks a lot for the information, but I’m currently trying to do my work by emailing you and you straight away say to my face that you’re on holiday? I don’t feel like that’s appropriate at all. But let’s stop the OoO emails rant and get straight to Tech:

First and foremost, in our last…


Next week I’ll be on holiday, so even though Fridays are always the best day of the week, today is even better. In a couple of hours, I’ll be starting my first full-week break since the pandemic started. We’ve been (and we’re still actually going) through the craziest period in history since I was born. Since 1992, I remember a couple of big moments in history like 9/11 or Portugal winning the European Cup in 2016, but nothing quite like living through a pandemic. …


Today, one of my grandparents is 88 years old. That made me think that he’s seen the world in a lot of different decades. That means he was 7 when the II World War started, that we went through the Portuguese Revolution with 42 years in 1974, to end up seeing a global pandemic with his 87 years. That’s a crazy life and I wonder if I ever make it to his age, what stories will I have to tell. …


The warm and sunny Portuguese summer is shining and has just arrived. While most of the year has been a complete roller coaster, some things don’t seem to change and the happiness I feel when the months of July and August arrive is one of them. On a week that brought a Facebook being the target of a boycott, here are other interesting developments that we read on the news:

Some things will never be the same and the importance we give to sanitation and hygiene is one of them. We…


We’re on the 20th edition of Landing.Tech and that marks the end of the 1st Semester of 2020. No one could have predicted what this year has brought so far, and if this is a sign of the things to come, we are in for a hell of a year. But I guess that it if we were finishing the year now, that would be the case anyway, so let’s just move on for what got our attention this week:

In 2019, Google rolled out a way…


Summer is starting, the sun is shining and we see some of the previous pandemic “normality” coming back. At least a little bit, and we have to be thankful for that. Now I wonder what are the changes the pandemic brought that will stay in the long run and I bet some of you are also interested in that. But let’s get over with the rambling and go straight to what you came here for:

By now you know this already, but Twitter started rolling audio tweets on iOS. The goal according…


June is just around the corner and my favorite season of the year as well: Summer. Being a regular presence in Portuguese and international Summer music festivals, I know for sure that I’m going to miss it. That’s one of the many things that will change in the upcoming times and we’ll need to live with it. We’re all together in the new normal. But let’s stop rambling and let’s check some news that I read this week:

The facial recognition startup FaceFirst has been promoting its idea of…
