Arĥimedeς Montegasppα Cacilhας, Musician, senior software engineer, autistic person, and autistic parent - not necessarily in 𝓭𝓲𝓼 𝓸𝓻𝓭𝓮𝓻
I was born Rodrigo M. Cacilhas at Petrópolis/RJ, Brazil, at 1975’s end, I got the nickname Archimedes when I was 10, for math sciences are usually easy to me – and for bullying too, since some fellow students wanted to make fun of the gold crown incident. Later, I changed the spelling to Arĥimedeς when I became esperantist (the final greek sigma has nothing to do with the Esperanto).
I’m autistic, high gifted and musician, I was learning music from an early age from my mother, who had been singer. I can play a lot of musical instruments – strings, fife, and some keyboard ones.
I studied Chemistry at UFRJ’s Chemistry Institute, but I didn’t graduate.
I’ve learned a lot of programming languages just for self-improvement, among them Scheme, MoonScript, Erlang, Prolog, Standard ML, OCaml, F♯, Smalltalk, Objective-C, Tcl/Tk.
I went to FAETERJ BTech college, completing the course with 9.5 achievement, and was removed by political persecution. Later I was reintegrated, and I graduated at the end of 2018.
I worked as hodman, tent loader, even storyteller, network administrator, IT consultant and software developer.
Due to my Apraxia of Speech, it’s easy to me learning new languages’ structure, but pronounciation and vocabulary are tough.
My great-grandfather was called Gasppar Montini at San Marino, but he changed his name to Monte Gasppa in Brazil, whence I take my ℳontegasppα, completing my public name. my great-grandmather’s name was Giulia Campimori, renamed to Julia Monte.
