My name is Pedro Lamas, I’m a Portuguese developer specialized in Microsoft Technologies, and this is my english blog for Windows and Windows Phone Development.
Back in the year 2000 I started working for a Portuguese company called LiveSolutions, mainly on a ASP.net powered ERP solution.
About 8 years later, I decided it was time to move and after a few smaller work experiences, I finally landed at DevScope (probably the most specialized company for Microsoft Technologies you can find in Portugal), working as a Senior Software Engineer.
In April 2014 with the acquisition of Nokia Devices and Services division by Microsoft, I became a Microsoft employee, still as a Senior Engineer on MixRadio.
By the end of 2014, I decided to move to London where I started working for Sky on the Sky Go Silverlight plugins and apps.
In September 2015 I wanted to start something new and exciting, so I took the leap to create my own company, Ample Roads, and go contracting, starting to work in Windows 10 development for Microsoft in their Reading HQ.
