About myself / my places

My name is Alessandro and I was born 31 years ago in Rome;

I think my city is one of the most beautiful and famous cities in the world, full of history and tales.

Unfortunately..there are downsides: the traffic jam.. public transport...the tube...and so on...they aren't always as we would like!

But walking in the streets of the town centre at night is a magic experience

Sometimes on the weekend I go to my house in Amatrice to find relaxation. It's a small town not far from Rome over the mountains of "Monti della Laga" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monti_della_Laga)

Amatrice is really famous for the very tasty regional dishes Amatriciana and Gricia...wow..I noticed now that exists a wikipedia page in english about "amatriciana" !  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amatriciana     the story  is interesting

My first videogame and my first computer

My beginning with technology was when I was about 6 years old and my father came home with this:

It was similar to PONG...a little bit more evolved..with different types of sports : it was a really rough game but it was really fun!

Then when I was 9 years was the Commodore 64

How many times have I seen this screen from 9 to 12-13 years old?How many times I typed  load "$",8 or  load "*",8,1 ? I think thousands of times

How I Became a developer

Development came relatively late in my life : my high school wasn't a "technical" school...I studied both technical (maths,physics) and humanities (latin , philosophy) subjects... so I never study programming when I was young.

In 2002, exactly 10 years ago, while attending the University of Economics I enrolled in a programming course organized by the "RegioneLazio" (Lazio is the district of Rome, in this period "regione Lazio" is very famous in Italy for sad political scandals :mad: .. but that's another story).

The course would cover C + + and Visual Basic 6!

In those months I learned the basics of the art of programming...I drew a lot of flow chart(for example..the functionality of an ATM..or an alarm clock, it was very funny!)

I was excited..I finally found my way to the future...I could think about became a "true" developer!

The course ended in 2003; at the end of that year I was contacted by a company because they were organizing a new team of ABAP developers:I did the abap course...and everything started from there. :lol: :lol:

BIF questions by Ivan

If you could be a super hero (or are in your spare time) who would you be?

I see myself as Paperinik!

Because when I was a child I read a lot of disney comics and Paperinik is the superhero alterego of Donald Duck ,which is a little bit lazy and unfortunate but funny!

What do you most enjoy on SCN?

Thanks to SCN I can solve problems, I can create a project on Code-Exchange , share it and work together with other developers, I  can attend events like Sap Inside Track, and much more!

If you were 20 again, what would you study?

Probably I would study Mathematics at University!
