About me

Currently acting as Developer Instigator @ Atlassian. In this role I write and talk about git, development workflows, code collaboration. I am also into Docker, ReactJS and several other recent frienzies. I am into frenzies maybe. I think of myself as an all-round hacker though you don't have to agree with me. Prior to Atlassian I lead software teams, built crowd sourcing applications for geo-spatial data, worked on huge e-commerce deployments. Little known facts about me: I gesticulate a lot while speaking (being Italian), I live in Amsterdam and ride a Ducati.

Random Youtube Trollings

Please accept that my tastes in videos are far out. Ranging from childish to nerdy with a sprinkle of inaneness and dementia. You have been warned?
