Everton Lucas

Everton Lucas​

Developer since 1999, I’ve worked on products that used Delphi, PHP, C #, Java, PL/SQL, Ruby on Rails and Python. Bachelor in Information Systems. I’m always looking for learning between developing software and agile methods for one reason: the themes and knowledge complement each other, and can not be treated separately! I believe that technological and human factors must go together in order to succeed in building a product. I’m doing my masters at Program in Technological Innovation of UNIFESP, and I want to help development teams to detect and remove impediments in software projects using Lean Software Development and Mining Software Repositories, through the research I will develop. I’ve been working at the Aeronautics Computing Center of Brazilian Air Force (CCA-SJ) in São José dos Campos. It is a FAB unit that builds flight systems and simulators. I have supported a development team to build the Center’s first flight simulator, as the Scrum Master, during the year of 2018.
