I'm a Junior Software Architect / Software Engineer based in Italy, my daily work is focused on helping large enterprises in improve their internal IT processes hence this can be either means design, analyze and develop cloud-native applications using microservices architectures and distributed system, or support them in any step of the SDLC.
Easily follows that my daily tasks spans from REST API management (development, testing or design) to component integration, to coding backend Springboot applications or to help internal IT people in developing compliant DevOps environments.
The main perks of this job is that gives you a good comprehension of the fundamental technologies which are now used everywhere to provide scalable, reliable and HA platforms or applications such as Kubernetes, Docker and the whole set of related concepts and technologies which are related with the deploy and manteinance of applications.

I have a Master degree in computer engineering,with a specialization in Cyber Security from Sapienza University of Rome and since then i started being strongly passionate by security, mainly cryptography and its algorithms, malware analysis, web security and blockchain, topic which i focused during my dissertation (which was then published @Tokenomics 2019 in Paris) and which i particularly care of. I find human being really interesting and i like to analyze the social behaviours and psycological factors involved in security, like attack vectors or code review, trying to disclose who is hiding at the rear of the lines, and which crumbs he left behind.
