Hi, I’m Filippo

Here, I share my coding triumphs, epic fails, and everything in between. 
Below, some posts selected with some popularity metric, but I’d not rely too much on that, most of the views are me just random fixing typos and bugs. if you want to see more check the blog section.

Who I Am

📚 Studies

I am currently a PhD student at Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS) in the Netherlands, working in the Safeguard Lab in partnership with Deloitte.

I graduated from Politecnico di Milano with a Master’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering in Spring 2024. I completed all my exams in the summer of 2023. I graduated shortly after completing an internship in R&D at Alten Labs in Sophia Antipolis, where I wrote my thesis titled “Universal Personal Privacy Agent: Toward Interoperability Between Self-Sovereign Identity and Personal Data Stores.”

Previously, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Computer, Electronic, and Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Parma on October 21, 2021. During an internship at the university in the Distributed Systems Group, I wrote my Bachelor’s thesis entitled “Simulation of N-Tier Fog Systems with Dynamic Service Placement.”

🖥️ Technologies I enjoy

I’ve been knee-deep in web programming, dabbling with PHP, JavaScript, WordPress, NodeJs, React, jQuery, HTML, and CSS. I’ve even had some fun with full-stack development using the MERN/MEAN stack.

Another big part of my academic career is Big Data. I’ve been exploring data science with Neural Networks and Machine Learning, diving into NoSQL databases like Neo4j, MongoDB, Cassandra, and learning the best practices for software development in the face of massive amounts of data.

My fast-changing interests addressed also Distributed Computing and Parallel Programming. I’ve been delving into technologies like MPI and Spark, and getting to know Middlewares for Distributed Systems.

I’ve got to work with different programming languages over the years, from C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Python, PHP, to even Assembly.

🎹 Interests

Hey there! Fun fact about me – I’m not just a software guy, but also a pianist! I’ve spent 7 years studying piano at a local music school. And when I’m not coding, you’ll catch me enjoying science fiction and fantasy stories, or playing some awesome computer games.

UPDATE April 2023: I’m currently obsessed with Factorio – it’s my latest addiction! Building factories, optimizing resources, and automating production lines has become my new virtual playground. It’s the perfect blend of strategy and engineering, and I simply love it.
