How did you get to where you are today in the developer world?

Hard work, then hard work and finally hard work

What is your best strategy for tackling a project or challenge?

I spend a significative portion of available time studing challenge requirements, then I start with coding.

How do you keep up with current trends and advances in this field?

It's a quite natural process to keep up on new trends and technologies because it is embedded inside my work.

What are you most looking forward to for the TCO Finals?

No one specific, I will have the pleasure to meet as many as possible TC people at TCO

Tell us what achievement you are the most proud of.

For sure this second consecutive participation to TCO.

If you wrote your own developer profile, what would it say?

I would make a list of project and customers, not simple skills.

Offline, what is your favorite thing to do?

Spend a lot of time with my family, play tennis and travelling.
