Work experiences

Nov21-Dec21: Teacher @ STELMILIT

I was teacher (18h) for the master course in Network Forensics at STELMILIT (School of Telecommunications for the Armed Forces of Italy)

Sep21-Dec21: Teaching assistant @ University of Genova

I did assist with the Virtualization and Cloud Computing course.

In particular I gave practical demonstration on the usage of Configuration Management tools, public clouds, container orchestrators, and Infrastructure as Code tools.

Furthermore, I assisted students with the development of the project needed to undertake the final exam.

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.

Volunteer work

Mar15-Jun15: Computer Teacher @ I.I.S.S. F. Liceti

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

Syntax: 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 std::unordered_map again?
  • 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
  • Javascript, there’s a package for that
  • 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
  • sh,bash,zsh,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
