Devops 2012

Rome Area , ITALY

I went to Rome for two days and learnt a lot of stuff on Devops, which I knew nothing beforehand. Many tools (like Ansible, Chef, Puppet) can really help you to make your development process much more efficient and new giant cloud vendors (like Amazon) can offer to host your application with affordable and flexible prices. Just give your customers a service that works, without the fuss of buying and maintaining hardware

During this project I strengthened my management skills and had the opportunity to face all the technical difficulties that arise in a really large enterprise software project (scaling, performance, concurrency, usability and so on).

Agile Coach Camp Italy 2013

Trento Area , ITALY

The 20, 21 and 22 June I was at this "unconference" for Agile Coaches and it really was a revelation for me: there were so many competent and skilled people, all of them willing to share their experience and knowledge, and I learnt a lot of things while having fun: how to help teams to be motivated, how to manage conflicts, how to coach people, which type of agile contracts are available, how to use storytelling to improve public speaking, I to support a team of organization in an agile transition; I really appreciated the "unconference" way of working: it leaves you the ability to influence the contents of the event and even how it is organized and you can get back home with a lot of hints that you can dig deeper afterwards; besides I have increased the quality and quantity of people in my network of connections
