Résumé

If you don’t know anything about computers, just remember that they are machines that do exactly what you tell them but often surprise you in the result.

Experience

Software Developer at Develer

March 2013 - Present

With Develer being a consulting company, I had the chance to work on several projects, such as:

Co-Founder and Android Director at Kiwi S.r.L.

2010 - 2013

As Director of Android Development my role was to lead the development of the application, set the road-map, and write the necessary code, alongside supporting tools and frameworks. I also helped the company pivot from an iOS-only approach to a client-server, cross-platform architecture, in order to expand the user base. As such, I made technical choices about the server platform, set coding standards and began adoption of Agile development processes. For a while I handled the development of both the server and the Android app before focusing exclusively on Android.

Summer of Code Student at Google

April 2008 - September 2008

Worked on the Kexi project (a FLOSS alternative to Microsoft Access, part of the Calligra office suite) to make data entry forms available over a Web interface. The server side component was developed in C/C++ using the Qt and Pion frameworks.
