Rigel Di Scala

Rigel discovered computer graphics on a Commodore VIC-20 as young child. Before going insane trying to render artistic landscapes using only the limited character set of his primitive 8-bit computer, he upgraded to a CBM Amiga 500 and started creating his first bitmaps with Dan Silva's Deluxe Paint II.

During his college years he started working part-time as a Web developer and consultant for several institutions and companies, and later as a system administrator, journalist and editor in the computer games industry.

Today he works as a Web application developer for an IT company based in Milan. He promotes and uses open-source technology exclusively in his projects. Inkscape is his tool of choice for developing vector graphics.

In his free time, he likes to freeclimb, skydive and read Reddit.
