I’m Jackson (@jacksongomesbr), a Computer Science professor at Centro Universitário Luterano de Palmas, in the beautiful, pleasent city of Palmas, Brazil.
I teach CS topics, mainly algorithms and programming (front-end, back-end), computer graphics and image processing, compilers, formal methods, HCI and UX, math for CS. I’m also a researcher on data analysis and knowledge discovery.
I’ve been using Github for the past 4, 5 years to publish starting projects and educational content, but right now starting to use Github Classroom. My interest in Github Classroom is the ability to introduce my students the concepts of software development and source code management, includind integrations with other services for tasks like automating test and deploy.
I’ve embraced open science and open knowledge and, besides open source software projects, I love to write books and educational contents delivered freely, now using Markdown and Pandoc.
I hope to be able to learn and contribute here.
