My name is Alberto Arena, and I’m Italian. I lived and worked in UK for 4 years, until I was finally back to the sunny Mediterranean sea in Sicily. I can see the wonderful Strait of Messina from my study window: that sight makes my days easier.
I work as a remote contractor for UK clients.
I have a background of 9 years in C++ and Delphi, when I coded data entry applications and ICR/OCR software using Borland products. Good old days! Now my daily work is different, but I didn’t lose my passion, and the desire to learn new things.
I’m currently working on several personal projects, included a query language to grab data using CURL + xPath, and some Zend Framework plugins.
I have several personal interests, including reading, guitar, constructed languages, and hand-made dioramas.
In the last years, I have worked on so different projects, from common websites to web-services (SOAP and REST) and complex web-applications. I can’t list publicly all the details of many of the solutions I developed, but they include e.g.:
On my LinkedIn page, you can find a few projects in which I was involved.
