About me

Hello, Vincenzo Scalzi here!

First off, welcome and thanks for the visit!

Let me introduce myself: I am a passionate web engineer and a front / back hybrid. In performance I trust.

Actually wait, I am not an engineer yet but I will be by the end of September 2017. I am currently in Privalia, a worldwide fashion outlet based in Spain, working there as a Computer Science engineering intern in their Performance team.

Before that, I was a Computer Science student at Bordeaux Graduate School of Engineering or ENSEIRB-MATMECA, for short. I chose the Multimedia and Videogames specialty there, mostly to open myself to new ideas.

If you ever need help with a web project or want to learn a few things, let's chat!

Have a nice visit!

When boredom strikes

The tiles of this section will give you an overall idea of my favourite pass-time. It is just the tip of the iceberg and I would be delighted to further go into details about projects that did not make it to this list because reasons.

Abilities

Technologically speaking, I am agnostic. I don't believe there is one absolute best stack for each case. Fundamentally, the underlying design processes are similar so it would not make sense to reject some because they contain noisy, old-school or proprietary elements.

Apart from the technical skills, there are some notable soft ones. We might lose accuracy here so buckle up buckaroo, we're in for an joyful ride!

The techie

I feel confident with:
  • HTML5, CSS3, JS ES6
  • ReactJS 15
  • Java 8 + Spring Boot 1.5
  • PHP 7.0 + CodeIgniter 3
  • Webpack 3, SASS, random JS libraries
  • Web performance and engineering as concepts
Not afraid of using:
  • [Put your favorite web framework here]
  • Functional programming
  • Microsoft .NET C#, NodeJS or even Artanis
  • Low level languages when relevant
Also worked with:
  • Multi-model non relational database: OrientDB
  • Database deamons: Maxwell, Debezium
  • Message broker: Kafka with Spring Boot integration
  • OpenID Connect: MitreID
  • Web performance:
    • Browser tools: Mozilla Firefox Developer, Google Chrome Beta
    • Client performance: Yellowlab, WebpageTest
    • Load testing: Octoperf
    • App performance: AppDynamics

The human

I think I am:
  • Extrovert but not a party person
  • Calm and collected
  • Ambitious but moderate
  • A fast learner: Move forward, break stuff
Want to become:
  • Socially responsible
  • A world changer
Though, I am also:
  • Expressive but not talkative
  • Easily bored when not challenged

The other stuff

I love trying new things, it helps me thinking out of the box. Being creative is really important when dealing with issues almost nobody faced before. I'm obviously not limiting myself to new technologies.

Quite frankly, I love going out for new experiences as much as I fancy watching movies and series, meeting new people and having a nice time.

Thy resume

Again, thank you for the time you have spent discovering the gs of this website. Did you know that it only uses HTML and CSS for everything? Yes, that's right, no JS or backend technology involved here! Everything is static!

Anyway, if you want to find out more, here are my English and French resumes. Don't forget to come see me on my social networks!
