I am Gianluca and this is the corner I cut for myself from the public internet.
I am a developer currently focused on databases and Rust. I consume, contribute and maintain many opensource projects. Check my GitHub account to know more.
I jump back and forth between operations and development. I write about my journey here on my blog. I used to speak at conferences but I am on vacation right now.
Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or I am gianarb on libera.chat.
