To those who pursue the beauty of the code

I am Prisco, a Software Engineer

I make software most of the time and I really love it. I worked for several successful companies in Telco and Financial sectors. My current Job is in Corvil, the IT data analytics company for business in the Now. I am involved on the design and development of real-time key analytics plugins across a broad range of trading, middleware and enterprise data protocols.

I have a unstoppable curiosity that drive me to learn new methodologies, programming languages and cutting-edge technologies. Lots and lots of books, videos and hundreds of articles. I also love to read about mathematics, physics and computer science. One day I thought it would be nice to have a space for explaining my favorite theories, concepts, and research studies. The result is this blog and all its content. Hope you’ll enjoy it!

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did.

-T. E. Lawrence

My Skills

My technical expertise includes Object Oriented Software Design, software development for Linux based systems, scripting and functional languages, Agile Methodologies, Test Automation, packet analysis, debugging and profiling tools.

Programming Skills

I believe that it takes work, dedication and competence to make great ideas and great products. Since I finished my MSc, I save part of my daytime for learning and mastering new approaches, technologies and future's best practices. I am focused to improve technical skills and professional profile.

Designing Skills

Solutions to problems have never the same value. The model adopted, time and space complexities, efficiency, scalability and maintainability are key factors in choosing the right solution. I like work on hard problems. I have a strong background in Software design which allows me to face with a variety of data and information and find the best way to summarize all the relevant information in a sensible decision for product.
