Emanuele Palazzetti

Emanuele Palazzetti is a software developer with strong JavaScript knowledge and a solid background in Python development. Part of his job entails taking care of backend web applications mostly built with the Django web framework. In the past few years, he has delved into many well-known frontend frameworks, such as AngularJS and EmberJS, to strengthen his JavaScript knowledge. Being a former Java developer, he leveraged his previous knowledge and started working on Android; by combining his interest on electronics and embedded devices with the well-known mobile platform, he managed to build several prototypes and small physical applications.

He currently works at Evonove, a small company where he has been leading a number of frontend software projects mostly based on the AngularJS framework. He is also an open source advocate, active contributor, and speaker at Python and Android conferences. He writes about JavaScript and other development stuff at
