I’ve been working as a Backend developer for the past 20 years. Started out in PHP — back in the day it was either that or ASP…sigh —, I was an early Ruby on Rails adopter and now a Golang enthusiast.

I love all things backend and I’ve recently been focused on microservice architectures, orchestration using Kubernetes and AWS ECS, and scalability.
I also quite like to play with databases: I’ve been using MySQL and PostgreSQL for as long as I can remember, often resort to Redis to do all kinds of different tricks. Recently started using DynamoDB, which I really like.

In the past, I ran my own dev shop with a couple of high school friends and we were the first to build large scale Rails websites in Italy which led to me moderating panels at Pycon Italia and Rails to Italy.

Now a freelancer, currently working as Backend Developer for Akiflow, a YC startup developing a productivity tool to consolidate all the apps you use in one place and improve your productivity by using time blocking and having a centralized view on all your inboxes. Cool product, amazing team, definitely give it a try if you’re in the market for something like it.

If you want to contact me, my email is m@the-domain-you're-currently-on. I’m always open to talk about Web development, startups, business ideas.
