Summary

I have started programming at age 11 when I got my first computer and never stopped since.
During these years I evolved from server-side web development to care about the whole stack
including front end and deployment of my projects. I am not afraid of taking technical leadership
on difficult projects, keeping ethics and accountability in the spotlight to improve the chances of
a lasting success.

I love object-oriented programming a la GOOS with Java and PHP, but I’m practicing functional
programming as the most fitting tool for many problems. This has lead me to learn a variety of
languages outside of work like Scheme and Erlang, all on Unix systems. I consider languages a
tool and not a religion, having become a polyglot programmer.

I am fascinated by the architecture of concurrent and distributed applications. I built μservice-
oriented, RESTful services and made them communicate with the event-based style of DDD and
CQRS. To ensure these systems work in production, I have an history of implementing automated
tests of any kind, from unit to the system level, including cross-browser and property-based
testing.

I practice Agile software development, mostly inside a Kanban process. At the technical level I am
an expert in Test-Driven Development, Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery; at
the team level I believe in collective ownership and code review, pair programming, and constant
refactoring.
