development team lead

Intelliflo
  • As a team lead, I led a team of up to 6 developers setting and managing their work objectives through a large scale integration project involving multiple enterprise clients and 3rd party service providers.
  • As a technical lead, I engaged with clients, users and internal/external stakeholders continuously throughout the software development and delivery process. I designed and developed core application modules which deliver high volume and high throughput services using asynchronous design patterns. In particular, I worked on the company main product "Intelligent Office" to integrate the current system with another important company in the financial sector. It involved both building the web user interface (ASP.NET MVC) and the backend using NServiceBus and WCF services. I used NHibernate for the data access, Autofac as IoC container to manage dependencies and Moq as mocking library.
  • As a scrum master, I facilitated sprints and ensured cross-team coordination in a SCRUM environment. I promoted best practices within the Test Driven Development (TDD) software development life cycle.

Greenlight search
  • Working in the R&D department using Agile methodology (Scrum managed using Microsoft VS Team System), I developed a backend service which analyse a web site in relation with its competitors and produce some important metrics. The service implements different mathematical algorithms such as Latent semantic analysis, Tf-Idf, Smith Waterman and Self-organising maps. The project uses many application blocks of Microsoft Entrerprise Library 5.0 and Unity for dependency injection.  It is hosted in Microsoft Azure worker roles to distribute the load and increase the performances. The data is persisted mainly in Sql Azure databases and in the Azure queues, blobs and tables; the communication with the frontend is with WCF (Azure web roles). The test-drive development cycle (TDD) is applied by using Microsoft MSUnit and Moq for mocking.

  • I designed and developed an internal web application to manage life insurance sales process using the Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 (Visual Studio 2008), C#, AJAX and Microsoft Sql Server 2005.
  • I maintained and improved an internal web application to manage secured loan sales process using the Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0, C#, AJAX and Microsoft Sql Server 2005.
  • I developed the online credit card comparison system for the main company web site using the Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0, C#, AJAX and Microsoft Sql Server 2005.

developer

Gruppo Soluzioni Tecnologiche

I worked mainly alone and sometime in a small team, using the traditional waterfall model, I developed the following applications:

  • I developed a mobile application to prescribe and administer medicines in a hospital using a PDA. I used the Microsoft .Net 2.0 and C#; the application interacts with a database through web services and it is speech-recognition-enabled (Nuance Mobile SR system).
  • I developed a web application to monitor and support customer installations of other company products. The application is also used by public companies with more hospitals to monitor their own installations. I used the Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0, ASP.Net, C# and AJAX. As DBMS I used Microsoft Sql Server 2005.

Interest

I am passionate about studying big data and social network with machine learning techniques. I am participating in online competitions to solve complex data science problems (my profile at Kaggle).

I love reading books, in particular about new technologies, algorithm implementation, mathematics and physics.

I am following blogs, social media groups and influencers about anything related to technological innovation like machine learning, big data and IoE/IoT.
