Apr20-Oct20: Internship @ Ericsson Telecomunicazioni S.p.A.
Together with a colleague, in the context of an university course, we designed and built a BDD testing framework and accompanying example tests.
The framework allows the definition of test scenarios by stating the inputs and expected outcome in a structured form that resembles natural language (Gherkin). Dynamically loaded support modules are used to provide the translation path from text to actual actions or expected outcomes. Upon loading the available scenarios and the execution of tests, a comprehensive report is built. Such report contains a summary of the test results and also detailed breakdowns of the executed actions and their outcome. For tests exercising a GUI, such as browser automation tests, screenshots are included in the report.
Technologies employed: Groovy, Gradle, Cucumber, Spring, Selenium, Docker.
Feb20-Jun20: Teacher @ Liceo Scientifico Leonardo da Vinci
- “Data mining e analisi statistiche” (Statistical analysis and data mining)
- “Tra coding e robotica” (Coding and robotics)
Jun16-Aug17: Telecommunications Technician @ Studio Longo Giorgio
Developed and executed a plan to shift a small office from a purely analog telephony stack to an hybrid VoIP one.
I took note of the existing architecture, then decided on what VoIP phones to purchase and what software solution to use.
The four existing analog trunks were inserted into an FXO analog to digital card of an Asterisk PBX running Linux.
The PBX perfectly mimics the previous method of operation via a custom made software dialplan.
Each VoIP phone automatically downloads a centralized configuration and contact list.
The deployment is tailored to satisfy two different tenants using the same shared system.

Computer teacher to elderly people for the 4th edition of the “Nonni su internet” initiative, the course was in the “Senior Capital” EU project and had obtained the support by the administration of Rapallo.
Programming languages I had used
language, some humor about said language
C, if you do not ask me to work my way out of a 14-levels deep pointer trick
C++, what was an
Go, the 90s never ended
Groovy, I like the syntax, I don’t like the way it abuses reflection
Java, comfy but likes a bit too much your system primary memory
PHP, doing serverless before it was cool
Python, the slowest language so the leader for numerical calculations*
Rust, if you aren’t using it, you should**
*Y’all don’t get emotional, I know the C libraries wrapping thingy.
**If you are, you should be using it more.
Software I appreciate
Here is a small list of nifty hammers I like using on my nails
Ansible, agentless, simple, powerful, my personal toolbox for everything sysadmin-ish
Apache Guacamole, virtual desktops / remote access for everyone
Asterisk, free telecommunications stack
Ceph, the cool kid in the block of software defined storage
Debian, nice Raspberry PI distro
Envoy, very nice programmable proxy
Fedora, nice workstation distro
ISC Kea / DHCPd / BIND, if you are on this webpage, probably these three are involved
Keepalived, allows me to sleep at night
Kubernetes, you don’t need it, except when you should use it
OpenVSwitch, because we all like software defined networking
Podman, Docker, but without the daemon
PostgreSQL, default workhorse for anything data
classic cli tools, I like to create magic incantations via the means of UNIX pipes
SQLite, coolest file format / data processing tool ever
Terraform, thousand euros of bills in an automated and repeatable process
Visual Studio Code, comfy editor
Wireguard, an easy to use VPN
