With this move, my commitment with the projects at the University of Salerno isn't over. On the contrary, I've been involved in another national project, a PRIN this time, called M.I.DIA.. M.I.DIA. is a balanced corpus of texts, ranging from the 13th century to the first half of the 20th century, written in Italian. For this project, lasted more than two years, I've curated all the phases of the process: from the texts cleaning and their digitization to the design of the database and the development of the front end and the back end. The final result is a search engine that helps morphologists to study the evolution of the Italian languaege. In addition to MIDIA, I've worked on several other projects especially for Cemit DS, a digital company based in Turin, Italy, and Learnable, an online learning website featuring books and courses.

Introduction

I'm a (full-stack) web and app developer with more than 5 years' experience programming for the web using HTML5, CSS3, Sass, JavaScript and PHP. I usually use the LAMP stack, and frameworks and libraries like jQueryjQuery Mobile, and Cordova (PhoneGap). I'm an expert of JavaScript and HTML5 APIs but my interests also include web security, web accessibility, SEO and WordPress.

A significant part of my work and my experience is represented by the disclosure. When not busy in writing code, I'm a regular blogger for several networks (SitePointTuts+ and FlippinAwesome), speaker, and author of books.
