Quote n. 2: Call me whatever you like (he/his is OK) but please don't call me using Google Meet. Thank you :)
Please be nice with me. Sooner or later you will find out that I'm that sort of "tech vegan" and I only use GNU/Linux. I also own an Android but without the Google Play Store and without any proprietary application. I don't have WhatsApp. I don't participate to Zoom Meetings. I do this since, as a software developer, I am now aware of how much power a software has on its users, also in terms of security and surveillance. I'm sure that my choices can be respected, without creating a problem to other people (and vice-versa).
My relationship with Wikimedia projects started as volunteer in 2013 in itwiki. It took me a few years to understand the encyclopedia rules. I may have learned Scribunto earlier than that. As a volunteer, I am a author and maintainer of several automated bots and I like to be involved in technical contributions and bug fixes. As volunteer I like contributing on software-related topics and to Wikimedia Cloud projects.
My global volunteer info can be found here with declaration of interests:
My local volunteer info can be found here:
In 2019 I met User:Ilario (WMCH) in person during an hackathon in which I was invited as itwiki technical contributor. After that, I started to have professional collaborations with Wikimedia CH, mainly involved as GNU/Linux systems engineer and full-stack software developer, as freelance.
In 2020 I've found a partner I love more than Phabricator. Believe me or not.
In 2021 I was elected as board director of Italian Linux Society, the national association supporting FLOSS in Italy since 1994.
In 2023 I've found you!
I hope to continue to find time to contribute together as a volunteer, and also have the opportunity to work on something I believe in.
I am not employed in Wikimedia CH. I'm a contractor since 2019.
In 2019 I started working as freelance developer on behalf Wikimedia CH with User:Ilario as my manager.
Since 2020 the kind of collaborations I had were too little continuous, so I accepted to be acquired in a company in Torino. I work there full-time, as Java developer and their principal GNU/Linux sysadmin.
I continue to remain at the disposal of Wikimedia CH, but without receiving any personal financial benefit (apart from the benefit of doing something that I think is more useful to the world) since I don't work for WMCH but for that external company I mentioned, and I have a fixed salary from Torino, not related to my collaborations with WMCH.
I love to describe WMCH progresses here:
I love to organize any work related to WMCH in Wikimedia Phabricator:
My manager User:Ilario is aware of my private declaration of interests. The public and most relevant ones are here:
I am available to be contacted on the discussion page with any questions about some of my past, or future, collaborations.
