Andrea Scarpino

Hello!

I'm Andrea Scarpino, a -year-old man from Martano, a village in southern Italy.

I'm a hands-on, competent software developer with years’ experience as developer in open source projects and years’ experience as developer in private companies. I’ve an excellent knowledge of GNU/Linux, shell scripting and Java. I wrote desktop applications and Web services using several languages in those years, mainly for GNU/Linux systems, but also multi-platform.

I love hard challenges and I really believe there are no barriers in software development; my motto is «Everything you can explain, I can implement».

I’m very very passionate in my job and I rigidly follow code standards when developing.

As I said, I'm pretty interested and involved in Free and Open Source Software development. In fact, I contribute to KDE projects and I've been member of the Arch Linux developers team for 7 years.
