I'm Diogo Torres Correia from Portugal!
I love programming, as well as running, taking photos and learning new things!
Feel free to get in touch or take a look at my past work below.
My top projects
Triton is a Spigot plugin for Minecraft that enables a Minecraft server to send messages in the player's language.
This was my first premium plugin on Spigot and I've put a lot of work and effort into it!
Craftathon is a weekend-long charity event that managed to raise $7,599 for Child's Play Charity in two events (2017 and 2018). I was mainly involved in creating and testing the donation and ticket system.
Portugal Ultra Triathlon
Portugal Ultra Triathlon is a solidary adventure and a triple ironman. Its mission is to challenge participants' limits and their resilience, generate social value and supporting local communities.
I was behind the entire internet presence of the event, from the website itself down to the donation system and sysadmin work (setting up emails, custom domains, etc).
How it all started...
At this time, I started to have some interest in coding. In May 2014, I joined the Bukkit community, started learning Java and created my first Minecraft server.
My first custom made Minecraft server
After a few months of work, I've managed to create a Minecraft server with custom plugins! We also had a website with PayPal support to allow for donations, all custom made. The server was closed later that year, so I've decided to open source most of the code.
My first experience working as a team
I joined a development team called Clout Team, which has since been taken down. We've worked on various projects, mostly related to Minecraft.
While working for Clout Team, I've started receiving money for programming, which was a huge achievement for me!
My first Android app
I started working on an Android app called "SchoolBit" (which was then taken down due to legal reasons), that basically connected to my school system and shown the absences, summaries, grades, etc…
My first time as a volunteer
After 6 months of work, everything was ready for Craftathon 2017! I joined other developers to create an amazing charity event in Minecraft, which was able to raise $6,455.23 for Child's Play Charity, improving the lives of children in domestic violence shelters and hospitals! I mainly worked on the website back-end, mostly on the payment system.
A custom made Minecraft server software
After Craftathon ended, I didn't have anything to do, so I made myself a challenge: create a fully working Minecraft server software from scratch.
The goal? Learn more about how socket connections work in Java. And after a week I got my first loaded chunk! The project is far from finished and it will probably stay that way, but it was fun to do nonetheless.
Portugal Ultra Triathlon
Another volunteering work
I designed a website for Portugal Ultra Triathlon, an «Adventure for Charity» and a triple ironman triathlon. Apart from the design itself, I also made the whole contribution system.
During Christmas, I helped with Craftathon 2018! This time we were able to raise $1,144. Like in 2017, I mainly worked as a backend developer.
Triton Web Interface
My first consumer-facing React app
In the v1.0.0 update for Triton, my Spigot premium plugin, I've introduced TWIN, a web interface to configure the plugin. It was my first consumer-facing web app made with React and other new web technologies.
An online multiplayer game you can play right now!
In October 2019, I started to develop a small battleships online multiplayer game for my school class. Two months later, that game is now available to play! And it's open source, so feel free to take a look at the source code on GitHub.
