My job experience from the beginning
The company assigned me the task of modernizing the development process in terms of methodologies, tools and technological choices.
To achieve the goal, agile methodologies, atlassian tools and a continuous learning process were introduced in which developers, designers and managers were involved. A team of about 20 people.
During this journey I also participated in several research and development projects in various areas; the most exciting was definitely YouWorkForce Mobile App.
Development of a mobile multi platform mobile app with Flutter, Dart and Material Design Principles.
The application uses a mixin of GPS, Sensors, Push Notifications and Microphone for detecting user motions in background, exchanges push to talk, vocal and text messages.
No-DB Administration Tool used to control docker instances of DWDM ROADM / OLA / DGE Network.
Each Network Element needs a management software called CISCO SVO. The Admin Plane is a server application installed on a linux board, that instantiate and controls each of this CISCO SVO instances.
The Admin Plane application, is made by two distinct components: Server Application based on Java + Spring framework that provides a pure HTTP RESTful Web Service, controlled by a Web UI written with REACT.
This is a component of CISCO GACRUX Project
Management Application, used to control CISCO NCS2K ROADM / OLA / DGE series of DWDM multichassis Network Elements, through Netconf Yang Protocol.
The application collects and stores data from a set of physical NCS2K devices, into TAIL-F NSO, an existing middlewhare application, throught CORBA RPCs.
NSO exposes data and APIs via HTTP/S, JSON RPC, REST , SSH and CLI to automated tools and real users.
I partecipated in this project from scratch since the definition of the YANG Models, to the development of the WEB UI application in a global distributed team.
Pure REST Service Application made with Java 8 and Spring MVC that collects data from CISCO NCS2K Network Devices via CORBA and provides REST APIs with Yang RESTCONF Protocol.
This is an integrated application, used by CISCO Planning Network tools for providing APIs to creates and manages L1/L2/L3 network services.
I started this project from scratch, by defining Yang models, desining the application architecture and implementing in team composed by 10 software engineers, in Italy, German, USA, India and Cina.
Web Monitoring Concept Application written in Ruby that receive, parse and collect messages from SIGFOX Antennas and display data in graphics.
Server Side Java Scheduler that collects electoral data from polling service, via SOAP Web Service and populates a JS based static DB. JSON Data are consumed by the comune di milano website, iOS / Android mobile App and Touchscreen totems in Palazzo Marino (MI).
CMS Development, MS Bing and Google Maps geo localization integration. Used Tecnologies:
Next Step on MediaCenter was to integrate it with User Generated Contents: videos and photos. The project was very heavy and we was no mouch time to go live, but wi did it!
I loved the way our team was capable of doing the impossible.
Since the MediaCenter was a very critical project on RCS, because of the attention on videos by the users, the company heavy invested on it and asked me to build a lightweight CMS tool to give to thear external partners on football stadiums, the possibility to publish videos at the end of the match.
The goal was to create a web application to handle Milano events, moderate User Generated Contents, create events around the city and provides a complete support to the drafting. In 2 working weeks, using Java, Struts 1, Hibernate and a lot of stuff.
Now called Corriere TV and Gazzetta TV, was a web application used to display Corriere della Sera and Gazzetta dello sport's videos.
Critical project designed to improove ADV performance.
The web site was completelly customizable and skinnable and it was integrated to the internal CMS, using XML.
Our customer decided to give to Hospitals and nursing homes a web application to register patients and exames, download the medical reports and print barcode labels designed to tubes. This was my first J2EE experience, I worked with success with engineers and doctors and the project is still running today, after 10 years in many hospitals, here in Italy.
My first job in a software house concern the UI design of an existing application. The function was to build about a thousand icons 16x16 px, before to start to write one line of code. It was a little bit hard to me but I had the opportunity to deep understand that a quality software needs a very big investment on design.
The company had the need of a new shipment software to integrate Bartolini courier. Everything was quite new to me. What I had was an heavy Integration Manual written by the courier, a Zebra printer and an email written by my boss, that was explaining the software they need. I did the DB Analysis, a printer communication library, a bar code generation tool, a shipment back office tool, an integration with billing software and a nightly export to the courier.
I was young and I had the need to earn some money to go holidays with my friends. That summer Ingram Micro acquired a new big order and hired me for July, to customize HP PC orders. It was not a strategic or creativity project, but it was My First Real Job and I was so excited about it, i learned to work in a team, on a big company. Each fellow was kind to me, because i was young and full of passion for any kind i've done.
