About me

Red Hat Logo       Apache Software Foundation Logo

I’m a senior software engineer at Red Hat, writing open source software for fun. They also pay me for that.

I contribute mainly on Apache Camel and the development tools of Fabric8 for building applications on Kubernetes and Openshift.

I’m passionate about Apache Spark and wrote some libraries for it.

  • Spark-HBase-Connector: to let Spark interact with Apache HBase with ease.
  • Spash: a Bash-like console to interact with a Big Data cluster.

I worked at Engineering Ingegneria Informatica S.p.A. (Italy) before joining Red Hat. Last experience at Engineering was about leading a team of 20 developers to create a new MDM (Meter-Data-Management) system based on Apache Spark, HBase, Kafka and Hadoop.

I also own the following certifications:

  • Oracle Certified Master, Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect
  • Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Web Services Developer
  • Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Enterprise JavaBeans Developer
  • Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Java Persistence API Developer
  • Sun Certified Programmer for the Java Platform, SE 6
