Because of my academic career, I’m interested in software engineering, human - computer interaction, user interfaces, graphics, databases, web applications and more.

As the final thesis for my Bachelor's degree, I implemented a garbage collector for a Java Virtual Machine (named Juice) targeted to embedded systems with real time requirements. As the final thesis for my Master's degree, I designed an access control mechanism for the Content Management System Joomla (www.joomla.org). It was successfully used for an e-learning solution.

I spent my last years discovering the Erlang language and getting addicted to it.

comment How to set the Top Margin for a custom Verbatim environment (fancyvrb)
Awesome. There's only one little detail left. I'm using the "samepage=true" option. This causes the actual shell content not to be broken, but it doesn't work for the header. Any way I can include the header line ("This is the shell prompt") in the "unbreakable" content?

Well, only drawback is that the underscore is not rendered correctly in the TOC (it minimizes the "w").

comment Escaping from the escaping hell
Because I didn't know about makeatletter and makeatother, which I just saw in your answer. Putting everything in a single file without those commands was causing a Use of \@ doesn't match its definition. error, which is why I didn't use a single file. I was doing my best to ease your job. Sorry about that.

comment Improper alphabetic constant
This did the trick. I've updated the gist with a working version, in case it is needed by someone else.
