Gianluca Pacchiella is an Italian developer living in Turin. He has a Master's degree in Physics and a PhD in Mathematics. He started programming in 2000 with some weird web languages (PHP, MySQL, HTML4, and CSS), but soon he was fascinated by real programming on the UNIX systems, and fell in love with C language (and a little bit of assembly).
Some years later, Gianluca bought an Android phone and started to learn everything about it and about embedded systems. Meanwhile, he continued to improve his skills with the web application, using the Python language and the Django framework together with the Nginx web server and the PostgreSQL database.
In his spare time, he tries to learn security concepts and cryptography applied to his projects.
