Hi there, I am Gianluca Fiore (aka Donearm, aka The Fountain Pen Creator and more)

Lots of names for a single person! I have been involved in programming and system administration in various roles for almost 20 years.

I am a Python/Go programmer, Linux administrator and FOSS enthusiast, DevOps Engineer and, nowadays, Technical/Content Writer. I am what would be once called a computer enthusiast, always learning new concepts, documenting them, and discussing the issues the I.T. world faces. Creating useful documentation and making it simpler to understand hard concepts is a pleasure for me, before having become my current job.

What I do in my spare time

Usually you can find me with my nose in a book (or, more recently, in my e-book reader). I read whenever possible, with a strong passion being fantasy literature (how original for a programmer eh?), history, philosophy, mythology, languages and the classics (from Gilgamesh to Infinite Jest). The final objective as a reader is reaching at least 1000 read books before I die (I am keeping track on Goodreads, if you're curious). I am not a fast reader but positive to keep 30-40 books per year till I die.

Outside of reading, I write for myself (travelling and coffee being two big passions) and for clients, I watch football, occasionally movies, and update my knowledge wiki.

If you like what I do, you can support me with a donation.
