Hello stranger 👋!
I'm Alessandro

Computer engineering student and tech enthusiast

About me

I'm a 20-year-old college student currently living in Trento, Italy.
In 2021 I graduated from ITI G.Marconi Verona where I studied IT subjects and now I’m pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering at University of Trento.
I also have a couple of CISCO certifications.

As part of my High School curriculum, I needed to have some work experience, here is what I did:

  • A month at Verona FabLab where my team and I created various IoT projects, aimed at introducing the topic to elementary and middle school students
  • Two weeks in AddValue (remote) where my team developed the backend of their new internal time tracking software

I’m also a strong believer in volunteering and open-source projects. In the tech field, I used to help out at Coderdojo Verona, and I volunteered at Linux App Summit 2022 in Rovereto and FSFCON in Bolzano.

In my free time, I like to thinker with old and new hardware or software (I have accumulated an embarrassing number of unfinished projects over the years). My latest project is Dev Toolbox, a GTK app aimed to simplify a developer's life when they need various utilities like a converter or a parser without relying on shady websites. I also made a 6502-based computer from scratch but is not ready yet for prime time (aka making the GitHub repo public).
When I’m not in front of a computer or studying, I love listening to music (I’m pretty much always wearing my headphones) and learning about other cultures and languages (I'm fluent in Italian 🇮🇹, English 🇬🇧, and Romanian 🇷🇴 with Swedish 🇸🇪 coming soon).

Here you can find projects that I made myself or helped to develop. Look at my GitHub profile for an always up-to-date list.

Dev Toolbox

Development tools at your fingertips

Tired of endlessly looking online for the right tool, or to find again that website of which you don't recall the name to do a quick conversion? This is the right app for you.
