I was born in Venice, grew up in Mogliano Veneto and studied between Mestre/Venice and Padua. Now I live happily in the country side of Treviso.
I studied computer science from high school onwards.
I went to the technical institute Zuccante in Mestre/Venice that was one of the more hard schools in my years and not for the humanistic classes ;) I graduated in 1995 with a dissertation on programming languages, lexical analysis and syntactic parsing using Yacc “Yet Another Compiler-Compiler” and Lex “A Lexical Analyzer Generator” on UNIX platform. I developed as practical example of dissertation a “translator” from L2P/L3P language to ANSI C.
I studied two years at the University of Padua Department of Information Engineering. In the second year I asked to be transferred to the University Ca ‘Foscari of Venice, Department of Computer Science where I could immediately follow a much more computer science curriculum and above all more applied in laboratory … I have given eight tests in ten months! and while doing civil service … :)
As soon as the short degree was introduced I applied and started to write my thesis. I graduated in 2002, exposing a dissertation in object oriented databases and some of the frameworks ORM that virtualise that approach like Java EJB “Enterprise Java Beans” and Apple WebObject. As practical example of dissertation I developed a Java library and its application for the management of persistent objects according to the MVC ”Model-View-Controller” pattern.
During the studies …
I worked as hardware/software technician for Essedi Shop. The skills acquired are: assemble, install, configure, repair and sell computers.
Later I worked with other organizations as a programmer and web designer/developer as appropriate. The skills acquired in this period were primarily the flexibility and dynamism but also the propensity to team working and re-usability of code and of everything as an attitude to optimization … Then, of course, working tools and the ability to use them according to objective are invaluable skills in the work of a technician ;-)
After graduating …
I served as an analyst programmer client/web and I developed complete solutions for major customers in various industries like industrial, textile, hospitality, construction and environmental safety.
Each time it was a challenge … from the analysis to user training through the implementation and realizing the integration with existing systems … always with the attitude of finding the “best fit” solution for the customer :-)
It had been a great working experience! Too bad after some time the team leader with the most relevant figures left to create an autonomous spin-off free from political and commercial decisions. Of course this choice exposed the few remained persons to greater responsibility and work, I made my bones and after few time I chose who to work with!
Since September 2006, I am a freelancer! :-) And I work mainly with Simmatica spin-off of the previous company, and collaborate with the great team of professionals whom I respect and where I feel I fit in perfectly.
Above all I develop intranet applications to manage process and collaborate within them; but I also develop other solutions fro example I have created WebIndex CMS “Content Management System” to manage websites from both Lotus Notes client and from any web browser. WebIndex layout is customizable with html/css layouts. IBM Lotus/Domino WordPress ;-)
As side-project Ops ;-) that’s no more a side project…
I work as freelance web developer… from Abobe web package to simple text editor. I worked with Joomla! but I am specialized in WordPress wich i know from 2.8 release always updating to the new one and its fantastic improvements…
