  • Intré, Passionate dev, author, learner

    Alberto Acerbis

    I am basically an eternal onlooker. I've always defined myself as a backend developer, but I don't disdain poking around on the other side of the code either. I like to think that 'writing' software is mainly about solving business problems and providing value to the customer, and in this I find DDD patterns a great help. I work as a software engineer at Intré, a company that espouses this ideology; as a good introvert, I find it difficult to come out of the closet, but I like to get out of my comfort zone to share with others the things I have learnt, so that I can find the right stimuli each time to continue improving. I like to frequent the community world, contributing, when I can, with active proposals. I am co-founder of the DDD Open and Polenta and Deploy communities, and an active member of other communities such as Blazor Developer Italiani. I am an Azure Solution Architect and Azure IoT Developer

    Ho cominciato ad appassionarmi di informatica da quando ho ricevuto il mio primo Personal Computer, un IBM PS/1.

Ho lavorato in diverse aziende, su diverse piattaforme informatiche, acquisendo una vasta esperienza nel campo dell'infrastruttura IT, del networking e della sicurezza informatica, occupando ruoli sempre più sfidanti e stimolanti. Ho trascorso gli ultimi anni a gestire progetti di migrazione verso il cloud di Microsoft, aiutando le aziende a sfruttarne i vantaggi in termini di scalabilità e flessibilità. Grazie alla mia esperienza, sono in grado di fornire un supporto completo per l'implementazione e la gestione di soluzioni cloud, garantendo sempre la massima efficienza e sicurezza. P.s.
