My name i1s Lorenzo and I'm a software engineer. I've got a MSc degree in Computer Science from University of Milan and have been working as a software engineer since 2015.

(Very) short bio

I'm currently working at Mia Platform. Mia-Platform provides the first Console on the market to manage the entire DevOps Value Stream and master end-to-end enterprise digital platforms based on APIs, microservices and Fast Data.

From 2018 to 2021 I've worked at Roialty as a software engineer, developing and maintaning the platform software and internal tools. In the past I have been a consultant for Goto srl (sadly, they are not active anymore), working both as a software developer and a system administrator and an intern in XTN lab, working on a blockchain project for my MSc thesis.

During my university years, I worked with the Aladdin laboratory, teaching Computer Science's basics to high and middle school students. I've also been TA for the Operative System lab for one semester, with professor Monga.

I'm based in the Lodi area (northern Italy, slightly south of Milan), where I live with my wife and our dog. I speak Italian, English and een beetje Nederlands.

When I'm not working on software, I like to spend my time playing and writing about role-playing games (mostly of the OSR persuasion) or writing about science with my association, Italia Unita per la Scienza.

If you want to contact me, the best way is via LinkedIn, but I also read old-fashioned emails at [first name]@this-domain. I'm usually found on social media under the nickname "frollo" (not a Hugo reference - I'm sorry to say I've never read Notre Dame de Paris), but it seems I'm not the only one using it, so we might not have met yet.

Technologies and things I use

I like to experiment and don't like to be stuck with a single thing (or a stack of things) for too long. Still, as everybody, there some tools I'm happier to work with than others. Some of those are:

  • Python (please don't tell me you are still using Python 2 somewhere or I'll start screaming)
  • NodeJS
