About Me

I'm Italian and I was born in Rome. I have a Bachelor's degree in computer engineering. Currently I'm studying for a Master's degree. I'm a programmer, system and network administrator. I'm a GNU/Linux user and co-founder of Roma2LUG group, currently the most active Linux User Group in Rome. I support free software philosophy and open-source software. I play piano and I enjoy assembling electronic circuits. I used to program PICMicro microcontroller and now I program Arduino boards. Check out my BitBucket repositories!
