About

Hi! I’m a computer science student, currently completing a Master’s degree at the University of Verona.

When I discovered programming I immediately fell in love with it: I gained the power to make the machine do exactly what I wanted. It shortly became my main passion, and still is.

I consider myself an hacker, in the positive sense: I like thinkering around with stuff, no matter if software or hardware, understanding how things work, and trying to improve them.

But don’t worry! I’m not the boring nerd that I may appear: I also like hanging out with friends, doing sports, music, litterature, and much more.

Work

I'm good at coding, I know lots of programming languages: C, C++, Rust, Python, Java, JavaScript, shell scripting, and more.

I have good competences in algorithms: because that I participate at various programming contests, like the ACM ICPC and the Google HashCode.

I know very well GNU/Linux and UNIX-like operating systems, and I’m a huge free software supporter. I like doing jobs as a system administrator, of any kind.

Since 2018 I work as a tutor for the Italian Olympics in Informatics team, and that gives me the opportunity to work on software projects that are used internally to organize the competitions.

I also worked a couple of times as a tutor at my university, helping students with their programming classes.
