Areas of interest

My primary interest is software development, especially web applications. My main programming languages are Perl and JavaScript, but I also have experience with PHP, Java, C#, C and Pascal. I am currently learning Rust.

I love, use and try to contribute to open source software and operating systems, especially Gentoo Linux.

I coordinated or helped the organization of several software development-related conferences and workshops, and spoke at many others including Perl, Linux and open source software events.

Other interests

In addition to programming languages, I’m also interested in languages people speak: besides Italian, I can speak English and Friulian, I’m learning French, and I’m curious about the various aspects of many other languages.

I love hiking in the mountains - especially in the Dolomites near where I live - discovering unbeaten paths and enjoying nature.

I play the bass guitar in a casual rock band.

On the road travel, especially in Northern Europe, France and the UK, is my passion in the warmer months: you can read several travel logs in my blog!
