As a Senior Software Engineer at GitHub, I am passionate about developer and infrastructure tools, distributed systems, systems- and network-programming. My expertise primarily revolves around Go, Kubernetes, serverless architectures and the Cloud Native domain in general. I am currently learning more about Rust and AI.

Beyond my primary expertise, I've branched out into areas like .NET, React, TypeScript, APIs, data engineering and Google Cloud to name a few. My past also saw me wearing the hats of a consultant, delivering hands-on training sessions, hosting podcasts, and organizing engaging meetups for the tech community. I'm an active contributor to open source and believe in the importance of knowledge sharing, as evidenced by my blog posts and talks. Additionally, I hold the title of Google Developer Expert (GDE) and CNCF Ambassador.

I will help you become a better software engineer with a tailored learning path and live lessons, sharing career advice and helping you prepare for a new job and interview. Send me an inquiry and we will see if there is a match for both of us! Once you apply and start the 7 day trial, we'll discuss your goals and needs further. If you're onboard, we are going to start work hard towards your goals. Not happy? Cancel the trial. If you are not looking for a full blown mentorship program, I have a one-off "Ask Me Anything" session you can book too.

Be prepared for homework! As an example: I will give you recommendations for books and articles to read and I will give you a project to work on, reviewing the code you write and enforcing best practices, code quality, good software design.

For a deeper dive into my contributions, head over to my blog at Away from the screen, my time is spent cycling, cooking on a kamado, on (astro)photography, or attending to my feline companions 🐈.

Looking forward to meeting you!

I've been looking for a mentor who can guide me, help me achieve my career goals, and keep me accountable. For over a year, Luca has been mentoring me. He reviews my code, recommends books for me to read, and we discuss daily engineering topics as they arise. Recently, I started a new position at a different company, and I am very happy in my new role. I believe this mentorship has made me a better engineer.

Working with Luca has been incredibly valuable to me. Initially, he helped me find my career direction. Throughout our mentorship, we've been working on a project where I write code, and he reviews it. His reviews are always thoughtful and insightful, specifically designed to make me consider various topics. In addition to the exercises, he recommends books for me to read, and we discuss daily business matters arising at my company. Whenever I have questions, his responses are prompt and helpful.
