I'm Alessandro and this is my resume/cv


I'm a full stack developer.
I am truly passionate about: software development. I love learning new languages and frameworks, following best practices to make code easy to read, efficient and well organised.
I'm a big fan of continuous delivery and I love to keep things simple and work by small iterations.

I currently work for a small company that enable firms to harvest value out of their informative assets. For them we design and engineer interactive visual solutions for data analysis and content engagement. We've also created and are currently maintaining our own projects regarding sport events tracking, ultra-high resolution images and custom interactive dashboards.
I started my career maintaining an image processing project written in PHP, which I rewrote in Ruby (RoR) a year later using Sidekiq and docker containers for background tasks. I moved another PHP project from a custom framework to Symfony heavily using many of the AWS services, Chef recipes for configuration and deployment, autoscaling etc... I wrote our dashboard project from scratch using Ember.js, Ruby on Rails and Spray (tool on top of akka and scala used for async and long running I/O operations).

I currently live in Italy but I'm going to move to the USA in end of 2015 since I've been selected for the diversity visa .
