About / Sobre


My name is João Felipe Nicolaci Pimentel and I am a computer science grad student at Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF).

I am currently working on noWorkflow. noWorkflow is a project that aims at allowing scientists to benefit from provenance data analysis of Python scripts even when they do not use a workflow system.

I am starting this blog to improve my writing both in English and Portuguese and to share interesting findings.

Please, feel free to criticize anything on this blog and contact me:

Resolvi fazer esse blog para melhorar minha escrita tanto em Inglês quanto em Português e para compartilhar descobertas interessantes.

    Hey there exceptional blog! Does running a blog like this require a lot of work?
    I’ve very little knowledge of coding but I was hoping
    to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway,
    should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off subject however I simply wanted
    to ask. Kudos!

      Thank you! It does require some work, but the amount of work depends on the post.
      I wrote my first post in less than 4 hours (including all the research).
      The second post was harder: I spotted the differences when I was working on PyPosAST (https://github.com/JoaoFelipe/pyposast), which required some work itself. In addition, it took some time to prepare the AST diff and to find the references that motivated the differences.

      As I’m new to blogging, I don’t have any tips yet. =/
      Feel free to share your blog when you start it! Good luck!
