Pedro Alves


I’m Pedro. Ever since I’ve had access to computers, I’ve been passionate about tinkering with them and changing them to do more than they were designed for.

I made my first game when I was 13. It’s terrible, I didn’t really know what I was doing, and you can’t even play it anymore, but it got me started with programming, leading my hacker spirit into way too many side projects for me to count.

These days, I’m in my final year of a Master’s in Computer Engineering at University of Minho, where I’m doing my thesis on fluid simulation! I’ve also gotten deeply involved with Nix, and created NixVim, my most successful project by far (over 400 stars!)
