Who am I and what I do
I am a 36 year old Italian “young” man and I work with Python since 2008.
I work as a Plone developer at the University of Bologna, where, over the past 10 years, we have migrated to Plone all the university websites that have up to 2 million visitors per day.
In my spare time I did some Django collateral projects staying in the open source ecosystem.
I had to learn how to fit the work I needed done into the short time I could devote to my projects by applying an agile approach.
One of these Django projects allows the booking of sun umbrellas in the beach resorts of the Romagna coast. All beach resorts are searchable by features and location. This project was realized with three other friends living in 3 different nations. Redmine as an issue tracker, github as a repository created a channel for all communications.
Currently, in addition to work at the university, I am collaborating with young people from Bologna in the agritech field. The plasive network project aim at the creation of a sensor that allows users to follow the trend of the crops from their PC by tracing the humidity and the temperature of both the soil and the air along with other relevant data in agriculture such as the PH of the soil, the wind, light and everything else for which a sensor exists. All data are visible and queryable on a web dashboard. Also on this project we use gitlab both as a tracker and as a git repository. All the architecture is dockerized and will therefore be easy to scale.
I’ve been a Linux user since 2005 and now I use Linux Mint on my laptop and Ubuntu or Debian with docker containers for my servers. In my free time I like hiking, playing soccer and cycling. I am also passionate about photography.
