Hello All!

My name is Marco Silva, and I'm living in Portugal at the moment, but planning on moving til the end of the year to Switzerland, Winterthur/Zurich area.

I now days work as a Information Security Consultant (in a Big4), before used to work at a Portuguese startup, where did web development (Wordpress, drupal, Rails, PHP), system administration, and lots of Linux (Ubuntu). I like technology

The are a few reasons for moving abroad, like searching for international exposure, new cultures, new projects, new challenges, and also due to the market in Portugal ( due to the financial status, most companies are not investing, so its hard to be in new and exciting projects )

Why Swiss? well... i've been there 2 on vacations and liked it, and since im moving with my girlfriend, she lived there for some time and enjoyed it

At this point I'm investigating the live cost, tax's and so on, to make a plan to move till the end of the year

So, this is my small story.

Cheers
