Blog It Forward – Ricardo Dias
Hi all! 😆
I was blogged by my colleagues Camila Zilles (Blog it Forward – Camila Zilles) and Nuane Mazzarino (Blog it Forward – Nuane Mazzarino) and I’m here today to accept this challenge and create my own BIF blog, talking a little bit about myself. You can find more information about this challenge in Blog It Forward Community Challenge and add your name into the Blog It Forward (BIF) Chain if you want to join it.

My name is Ricardo de Oliveira Dias. It’s a regular name, no famous family but I’ve heard that the origin of “Dias” is from Portugal. I tried to search the origin of “Dias”, but I am not 100% sure about its origin as it’s a common surname here in Brazil.
I live in South of Brazil, in a city called São Leopoldo. It’s not a big city, but it has everything I need, including 100MB internet, which, for me it’s VERY important.
There is one interesting fact that in south of Brazil (state of Rio Grande do Sul) there is real winter. Sometimes (rarely) even snow on specific cities. Everybody (ok, almost everybody) thinks that Brazil is hot and there are beautiful beaches everywhere. IT’S A LIE… Here in Rio Grande do Sul the beaches are not beautiful.
However, I love our winter and on summer I go to state of Santa Catarina which is near and has paradisiac beaches, like the one below (called Praia do Rosa).
I’m a kind of Geek/Nerd who has social live. I like to spend my free time with friends, playing videogames and also practicing sports like Running. I also enjoy playing piano and singing, but I’m retired now as there are many better people at The Voice and X-Factor, but I’ll share a picture just to remember the old times.
The curious fact is that all the guys in the picture are my cousins, it’s like that band “The Corrs”, the difference is only the talent.
One of my passions is travel, I don’t know many countries yet, but someday I’ll increase significantly the list.
Regarding my professional life, I’ve been working with SAP for almost 7 years now. My career started as ABAP consultant in a SAP partner, participated in a few ECC implementation projects. Then, after 2 years working as consultant, officially joined SAP team.
Now I work in Product Support with PP (Production Planning), OIL/GAS and Batch Management. I’m also instructor of a several technical trainings including the famous BC400.
Just a picture of my my team at SAP:
Fun Questions asked by Camila and Nuane:
– If you could choose another city to live, what city would you choose?
Any city in Canada for sure.
– What do you enjoy most in your work and why?
I love organize trainings and deliver.
– What is your favorite book? Why?
This is hard, but I can say that Chronicles of Narnia is on the top.

I love a restaurant called Zimbabwe. It has the best pizza of the world.
