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 speak at conferences time to time.

Drop me an email at ciao@gianarb.it or I am gianarb on libera.chat.
