I'm a programmer. I've been a programmer since I was 10 or so. I enjoy learning about all sorts of programming languages and technologies: from Qt to AngularJS, from Boost to to Less, from Git to LaTeX.
I've also spent a lot of time writing SQL and PL/SQL in my daytime job. I am amazed by the performances (and the complexity) of Oracle, especially when you have a big Exadata to play with. :-D
I tend to be wary of over-complicated code - if you can do it with a weird and long one smart liner, or with five easily-readable lines, I'll go with the longer version.
I have worked on real-word, mission-critical projects in Generali, Unicredit, Intesa San Paolo, and a lot of other smaller companies.
