Hi, I'm Gabriele and I design and develop web applications.
I'm currently working as a fullstack web developer focusing on frontend development, backend development and user experience. I have 9 years experience in designing and developing for the web, strong project management skills, a great eye for detail and I don’t want to stop learning.
For the sake of fanciness, my passion is travelling and I love my awesome dog.

During my last 9 years I've:

  • Designed and coded from the ground up: a chat-commerce platform, a real-time social news aggregator, a web-based native mobile app editor, a medical sw dedicated to external fixation, one of the most visited online Italian dictionary and its mobile app, an e-commerce CMS and more than 15 small to medium websites. more details →
  • Had the opportunity to being involved in projects from various fields like medical, fashion, sport, education, catering and logistics; both as a freelancer and as part of a group.
  • Experienced my knowledge of: HTML(5), CSS(3), Javascript (ES5/ES6), LESS, SCSS, Cordova, MVC frameworks, Nodejs, PHP, MySQL, Elasticsearch, Redis, CouchDB, REST services, nginx, apache, scalability, microservices, OAuth 2, caching, unix servers, UX, UI, Bash scripting, Git, AWS stack, SEO.
  • Decided to enroll at the university while I was already working; now I'm writing my thesis for my BSc in computer science (expected in 2017) titled "Adding interactive elements into spherical video".
  • Visited Japan, India, Turkey, Greece, Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, UK, Serbia, Hungary, Netherlands, Denmark and played basketball a lot.

As a fullstack developer at Appfactory I'm currently working on:

An emerging online fashion outlet, I've started this project from scratch, builded its custom cms and SEO, designed the website, studied users interactions, etc. I'm still maintaining this website also by giving advices to its employees.

I also have learned to:

Simplify things

Less is more, of course. I always try to remove any element not strictly necessary, I think that simple things are also the most usable.

Think first, code after

My main goal is to satisfy all the stakeholders involved in the project. I think that a good thinker is a better developer, i try to be both as best as i can.

Work in a group

I consider myself a good observer, this gives me a good overall view of the project in which I am involved. I also have worked in task groups on assignments and this enabled me to develop skills in team working.

Design for mobile

I can develop both responsive website or hybrid mobile Applications, focusing on simplicity and usability.

Feel free to drop me a line or connect with me on LinkedIn, Twitter or Github, even if I'm not very active on social networks.
