Freelance, Vicenza, Italy
Web Developer, Software Programmer and IT Consultant, 2014 - Current
I’m currently working as a self employed Web Developer, Software Programmer and IT Consultant.
The websites I create implement the JAMstack architecture to be quick and performing and are editable on an admin interface as any CMS (Content Management System).
I use also PHP e WordPress when required by my clients.
I develop with Node.js because I consider it the best environment to both create front-ends thanks to Webpack and create REST back-ends thanks to Express.
I use both SQL and NoSQL databases like MongoDB, MySQL and PostgreSQL depending on the requirements of each project.
I work on Unix-like environments to implement email servers, databases, LDAP directory services and I protect them with SSL, firewalls, spam blockers and virus scanners.
1form Online Pty Ltd, Melbourne, Australia
Web Developer, 2012 - 2014
I worked first as an independent contractor and as a full time employee after I was granted a working visa.
I extensively contributed to the remake and modernisation of 1form, which is the most widely used website for online tenancy applications in both Australia and New Zealand. 1form claims more than 3.000.000 registered users.
1form demonstrated so successful that REA Group Ltd, the Australia’s leading real estate company, recently bought it.
This job highly improved my web development skills in PHP and MVC frameworks thanks to the aid of Yii.
The magnitude of this project required a careful design and code structuring to facilitate tests and techniques of agile development.
I immediately gained the trust of my colleagues and employers, so that in the 2nd year I was developing 1form almost autonomously.
I dealt with development, tests, beta tests, deployments, server and database administration.
I used JIRA daily as the project management tool for bug and time tracking.
I deepened my knowledge of GIT since all the 1form source code is hosted on GitHub.
I attended daily sessions of stand-ups.
I spent 2 weeks in the offices of REA Group to train their staff for the continuation of this project.
I helped in the development of a couple of websites based on Ruby on Rails in a team of 5 programmers.
My Duties at 1form Pty Ltd
- Remaking of the old 1form.com.au and launch as 1form.com
- Development with Ruby on Rails and MongoDB
