I have been passionate about computers since I was 8, when I wrote my first program. It has been a long way since then, as today I have covered positions in almost every aspect of the software industry, from writing requirements to integration and testing, mainly focusing on programming in the TelCo and Defense sectors.
I have learned many different programming languages through the years. I mostly work on GNU/Linux, which made me gain some deep knowledge about it. I have even contributed a driver to the kernel. Networks and TCP/IP have always been a nice distraction, too.
Recently I needed a new focus and I found it in Arduino and the hardware side of things. I have developed a lot of projects, many of which are released as free software on my github page.
Currently I am a Senior Consultant for Amaris, a young but quickly growing international Technologies and Management Consulting Group with more than 70 locations around the world.
