๐Ÿ‘‹ Hello! My name is Luca and I am a Senior Software Engineer at GitHub Actions.

๐Ÿชช I am passionate about distributed systems, developer and infrastructure tools, and systems programming. I enjoy working in the Cloud Native space with technologies like Go, Rust, Azure, Kubernetes and I share my knowledge through blog posts and talks. These contributions to the community have earned me a few recognitions, including becoming a Google Developer Expert (GDE). I am currently learning more about AI and when I'm looking for some extra fun, I tinker with creative coding projects that let me play with data.

Back in 2015, I made the move from Italy to The Netherlands. Since then, I've been diving into all sorts of projects, wearing different hats along the way. Besides my main skills and interests, I've also jumped into areas like .NET, TypeScript, REST APIs, several databases, Google Cloud, Data Engineering, consultancy, giving trainings, hosting meetups and podcasts, and more.

Check out my blog for my articles and talks and FirstIssue.dev to find a project for your next open-source contribution!

๐Ÿš€ My possibilities

- Make you a better software engineer
- Prepare a learning plan with you and help you develop your skills (including the "soft" ones), grow professionally and cover gaps in your knowledge
- Help you in your daily work life
- Help you understand complex concepts
- Help you with your LinkedIn profile or Resume
- Give you productivity and career advice
- Help you find a new job and prepare for the interview

If you don't need a mentorship but only have a few questions I can answer (see my "Skills" and "Topics"), checkout the "Sessions" tab for a one-off consultation.

โš™๏ธ The Process

- Send me an inquiry and we will see if there is a match for both of us
- 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.

๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿป My approach

I am for a tailored approach to mentoring: every person is different and has different goals and schedules. In general, my approach is the following:

- Discuss your goals and needs
- We'll identify and review gaps in your knowledge
- Prepare a roadmap to address goals, needs and gaps
- Homework: I will give you recommendations for books and articles to read and I will give you a project to work on
- I will review the code you write and enforce best practices, code quality, good software design
- Discuss anything going on right now in your daily work life

Looking forward to meeting you!

What mentees say



5 out of 5 stars

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.
