Who is Edgar Gonçalves?

This is the place to know a bit about me: Edgar Gonçalves. I am the fellow you can see in the picture below. I was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal.

I'm a Software Engineer, graduated in 2005 and currently working on my PhD project on Offline Work in Web Applications. I'm also a researcher in the Software Engineering Group at INESC-ID. I like fiddling with programming languages, specially if they have lots of parenthesis (read, LISP dialects!)

I spend my spare time having fun with my friends and girlfriend. I play guitar (not as often as I'd like to) and I enjoy many kinds of games, such as Munchkin, RPG campaigns (I've played The Shadow of Yesterday and Bushido) and most kinds of board games. I also enjoy hitting both the gym and the tennis court as regularly as I can.
