Here you can find some of my presentations and articles, which are not strictly work-related. There's also some stuff from the past (mainly college years), most of which hasn't been translated from its original language, Italian. Please take a look here for more updated stuff.

Given Presentations

PLEASE NOTE: From 2011 all my presentations are published on slideshare. I’ll soon also start to use Github to keep my source code.

College Related Material

PLEASE NOTE: I’m grateful to my college, the University of Udine for the education it has provided me. Many courses have been among the most interesting things I’ve done in my life, and I’ve learned a lot from that. Yet, there’s one thing where I really think that things could’ve been much better. I am talking about the quality of code, something to which very little attention has always been given (almost in all courses). Hence, most of the stuff you’ll find down here (especially older stuff) won’t contain good quality code. Actually, if you’re a college student, I take this chance to encourage you to read one or more of the following books, even before you get out of college: Code Complete, The Pragmatic Programmer, Clan Code. This can make you much more effective in finding a good job after you graduate.
