My name is Luigi Cavalieri. I am a software developer living in Roccagloriosa, a small hill village, in southern Italy, where olive trees outnumber inhabitants.
I share my daily life with my family, three mixed-breed dogs and three pond slider turtles that sometimes taste my fingers — apparently there is also a family of bats dwelling under my roof.
Apart from diving into pages of code, I love baking bread, pruning fruit trees and growing the small vegetable garden in my backyard.
Short History of SiteTree
After some time working on Mac apps, in 2012 I publish SiteTree on WordPress.org. It all started out as an unpretentious learning experience. Soon, keenness, passion and a welcoming community made me think of SiteTree as a real project — I began to nourish my hopes. But one day Unpredictability knocked to the door, and Life called for a break. Thanks to the support of my family I eventually managed to pick myself up, and in 2020 SiteTree was finally refreshed and re-purposed for a more aware chapter of my life.
Placing my personal projects side by side a freelancing business was something I meant of doing for a long time, and as the 2020 was a magnanimous year for me as a developer, a step forward had to be taken. So, with a bit of fear of not being up to it, but also with a lot of enthusiasm, in January 2021 I started freelancing.
I do my little part to make the world simpler.
