Day #1

Today is the day one: the day in which I’m finally kickstarting my personal website.
The day zero lasts for many years: looking at its whois records I discovered that I bought this domain name in the far 2011.

At that time I was 21 years old, still at University, spending most of the time hacking exams and code with my incredible colleagues and wondering what I would have been in the future.

Then it came 2012, my third year of University. I was deep in programming languages and concurrency theory and writing my bachelor thesis, “Type for Leak Detection in a Session-Oriented Functional Programming Language”. I was really having fun with such kind of strange topics. So much that it finally came the first opportunity to use the domain name I had bought the year before: I needed to publish somewhere on the web my thesis to support my candidature for a student grants to cover the expenses to attend POPL, a very huge conference on programming languages theory in Rome.

I didn’t won the prize so I’ve never been to POPL, but this is what my website was looking like at that time. - bachelor degree dissertation - bachelor degree dissertation

Yes. It was utterly ugly, but it was temporary, just for few weeks: all the important information was there, included a super-short presentation of my work. This was my plan.

Unfortunately, my website has been exactly like that until now.

Now. It’s 2016. I still don’t know what I will be in my future like in 2011.
But finally I’ve got a real brand new website!
