    Lives in Dubai, UAE

    FIELD
    Technology, Enterprise Applications, Web APIs

    BACKGROUND
    I am a seasoned technical leader who pays a lot of attention to enterprise patterns, methodologies, communities and (everyone's) personal development: with 6 years of experience on my back, I've heavily focused my attention to agile practices, patterns of enterprise application architecture and leading mid/big-sized development teams.

    I'm currently in Dubai, where I work as VP Technology for Namshi, a Rocket Internet venture, trying to teach the team and push them towards enterprise applications development and new practices, like BDD: I am very proud of the achievements we reached in 1 and a half years working together, since we moved to a SOA using the best of the market (ie. AngularJS, Symfony2, Puppet, automated testing, RabbitMQ) and the cloud (AWS), helping our team members understanding new tools and practices they have never seen before, being still able to deliver new deployments a few times a week.
    On the Dev side, our entire workflow happens on Github, where we use something similar to GitFlow, and where we integrate code reviews and everything related to code.

    Technically speaking, I'm a big supporter of Service Oriented Architectures, the REST architectural style, asynchronous messaging systems and I'm used to work with some practices of extreme programming (and agile development, in general), like TDD, pair-programming and so on
