About

I provide Drupal services since 2008, working as analyst and developer, with an in-depth knowledge of site building, custom module development and theming.

I have a bachelor degree in Computer Sciences and in Graphic Design. I wrote my first lines of Basic at 10 and started working on personal internet projects in the end of the BBS, when the buzz words were Netscape, GeoCities and AltaVista (let's say the late nineties). Nowadays, I tend to improve the Drupal experience with things like SCRUM, Continuous Integration, headless, Node ecosystem, REST ...

Early enthusiast of Drupal 8, as a Java addict, I am really excited about the PHP 5.5 / 0bject 0riented / Symfony orientation that the community took. I fell in love with this warm welcoming community and try to give back as much as possible by contributing translations, patches or documentation.
