Intro

What I am all about.

I’m a highly motivated Front-End Developer with over 16 years of experience, especially passionate about JavaScript.

I was founder and CEO of the EgoRego Internet Company, based in Rome (Italy), founded in 2007. We've made a reputation for planning successful communication strategies, coding rich Websites, increasing business through social media marketing. I learned how to efficiently manage a project, how to lead a team and deal with customers.

I truly believe in the value of sharing knowledge.
That's why I enjoy contributing to open source projects, supporting some junior developers as mentor and giving free talks about technical topics.

My educational background includes a bachelor degree in Communication and Media Studies and a master degree in Production cultures, publishing and multimedia.

I believe in teamwork. Different team members contribute different perspectives and the synergy between team members can produce creative and productive results.

I'm familiar with working across functional (development/testing, deployment, systems/infrastructure) and project teams to ensure continuous operation of build and test systems.

Expertise

Batman would be jealous.
01

SPA Development

Most of the applications I have recently developed have been implemented as SPAs due to the need for performance, linearity of implementation, simplicity of debugging, separation of backend and frontend environments.

02

PWA Development

I am convinced that PWA will play a key role in the future. My implementations so far are rather superficial, but I hope to invest some time in this methodology.

03

JavaScript Frameworks

I started working with Angular, then I moved to VueJs and in my free time I played briefly with React. Although I think it's very important to know Vanilla JS, keeping the UI in sync with the state is not easy, so I'm very happy to use JS frameworks extensively.

04

CSS Preprocessing

I like CSS but I like it even more if they can take advantage of the modularity, scalability and structuring of the major preprocessors like SASS and Stylus.

05

Testing/Debugging

I truly believe it's fundamental in Software Development life cycle to get testing done as soon as possible.

06

Version Control/Git

Among the many reasons why I think it is absolutely necessary to use the version control I must mention that it is the basis of continuous integration and fundamental for the collaboration between developers.

07

Building / automation tools

Who doesn't want to save time and money and to reduce human mistakes during manual building? automate everything that can be automated, then test it.

08

Back-End development

At the beginning of my career I worked in PHP and it has been one of my main technologies for many years. Currently it would not be my first choice, but excellent frameworks like Laravel and CakePhp I think are still very competitive.

09

Mobile and Responsiveness

Mobile first, because "mobile second" or "third" is expensive, more difficult and unnecessarily more complex.

Experience

Yes, I have been around.
