I am an Italy-based consultant with years of experience with both big brands and small business. I hold a Ph.D. and a Master Degree in Computer Science. I am one of the core developers of PyPy, as well as the creator/maintainer/contributor of numerous other open source projects. See my projects page for details. I have also been very active in the Python community for years, giving talks at various conferences such as EuroPython, PyCon Italia and PyCon UK. I regularly write on the PyPy blog.
