Hello stranger ๐Ÿ‘‹!
I'm Alessandro

Computer engineering student and tech enthusiast

About me

I am a 21-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 am pursuing a Bachelorโ€™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 in Verona FabLab where my team and I created and contributed to various IoT projects, aimed at introducing the topic to elementary and middle school students. Part of the deal were also 100 hours of formation on the topics applyed during the project-work.
  • A week in AddValue (remote) where my team developed the backend of their new internal time tracking software.

I am 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 SFSCON 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 Ticket Booth, a GTK app to keep track of movies and TV Series. I am also the developer behind Dev Toolbox and in the past I worked on a 6502-based computer made from scratch, but is not ready yet for prime time (aka making the GitHub repo public), one day I will get to finish it.
When I amm not in front of a computer or studying, I love listening to music (always wearing my headphones) and learning about other cultures and languages. I am fluent in Italian ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น, English ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง, Romanian ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ด, and (almost) Swedish ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช.
