As a programmer everything starts with Andrea Iacono, the person who introduced me to programming and to "Web Thinking". I worked with him at Humanbit for one year on three main web projects: two social communities and an online magazine.
While working at Vidiemme I was contacted by Buongiorno (later Lumata, born for a partnership with San Francisco Partner), an Italian company who leads the mobile market providing services for mobile operators. Here I was hired as Java developer and assigned to the company main project: a multi country web service based on open source technologies and specifications used by mobile operators to set up marketing campaigns based on topup events. Here I learned a lot, both on working methodologies and code best practices, because I worked with a great team of experts always happy to teach and learn something new every day!
later I moved to Madrid and after the summer I started working for TradeSlide leading the frontend team. I helped the company to going online quickly and with a set JS libraries capable to scale later if the company grows.
Once reached my objective with TradeSlide I joined the tech team of TapTap Networks to build an advertising platform. The project I'm working on is sonata Retail and it's composed by various server components; I take care of building the server side API and tools with Node.js but occasionally I also help my team mates with the fronte end part built with Backbone.
This is just a resume of my carreer, if you wants more check out my full cv!
Booksteke is a magazine composed by articles contained in tweets that users marks as favorite! Is built with Node.js and use MongoDB & Redis as NoSQL database and cache layer. Is deployed entirely on Heroku. The project is always in "work in progress".
Mambo is a jQuery plugin that use canvas to draw 2d percenatge badges. I made this plugin because I was working on a web application that needs to display badges with a round percentage around them and I thought that using images would have been a mess! So since our Web Application targets canvas capable browsers I thought to experiment for the first time canvas drawing and release my experiments with a jQuery plugin reusable by other people.
This is a small project made just for playing with NodeJS and Redis! Is a very dumb application that allow you to share image between two client conneted just dropping them on the screen. Check out the project code at Github.
