Just to give you a glance of my capabilities in HTML/CSS

I've designed two websites before entering my university (3 years ago, so they are quite outdated): - C++ Programming tutorials in Portuguese written by me (20!) - Webpage about genetics for a school project 

And one I developed some months ago, for a Conference in Plastic Surgery (requested by my sister and done in just 2 hours!):

These websites (with no exception) where developed on a text editor (Notepad++ or vim) with HTML and CSS (with no tables for layout).

They mostly show my skills in HTML/CSS, although I'm self-taught on web design/development. I've also recently started studying web usability, something that I know now, my websites lack quite a bit.

About Me

I'm João Portela, a 20 year old student from Portugal. I'm on the 3rd year (of 5) of a Integrated Master in Informatics and Computer Engineering at FEUP.

I like all areas of software development and engineering, with a special interest in usability and software architecture. The language I feel more comfortable with is C++ (it was my first programming language, back when I was 12), although I feel pretty fluent in Java, C, C# and web languages like HTML/CSS and Javascript. I also have working knowledge in PHP, Ruby (on Rails), Assembly, Python, SQL, Prolog and Scheme.

Beside from computers and the occasional geekiness, I love reading and watching films and tv series. I'm also a piano and music theory student (although I only begun playing the piano last year), in hopes of becoming a composer someday, and I can somewhat play the violin. I mostly play and listen to classical music, although I do appreciate rock and some heavy metal groups

Well, I think that's about it, I'll leave you with a list of some of my favorite stuff:
