Primo piano di Luca

Ciao!

My name is Luca, I am 23, I have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering and I am currently studying Data Science and Engineering for a double degree at Politecnico di Torino and University of Illinois at Chicago.

About me

I approached the world of information technology when I was 12. I started with Dreamweaver… I was dragging images into it and making awful Web pages. When I discovered that there was code behind those images, a new world opened up for me. I started studying HTML, CSS, PHP and Javascript as a self-taught.

I started publishing my first websites on Altervista. From my personal website, on which I published articles and tricks for Facebook, to my Web radio. I developed a few small websites for fun. But my first real big project was SimPulse, a management software for hospitality structures.

In my spare time I enjoy adding “smart” devices to my home. Most of the time I realize how useless these devices are, but sometimes I manage not to realize it (although they actually are). I use Home Assistant on a Raspberry Pi and a lot of Shelly devices.
