My name is Luigi Cavalieri. I am a software developer living in Roccagloriosa, a small hill village, in southern Italy, where olive trees nearly outnumber inhabitants.

My journey as a developer began during the bygone years of the university. At the time, my sole focus were Mac applications – iClip Lyrics gained modest popularity, so much so that Macworld.com published an article on it. Only in 2011 I started approaching to the open source world, when I released my first actual project, SiteTree. The aim was to work on this plugin for WordPress indefinitely, but Unpredictability knocked on my door. Sometimes life calls us to the roll call just to remind us to stop, to pause, and however long such break may be, when it's needed, the best thing is not to put it off.

Eventually, in the summer of 2021, SiteTree gave way to The Permalinks Cascade. Since then though, my attention began to shift more and more towards full-stack JavaScript development. I found myself spending an ever growing amount of time on reading books about JavaScript and on exploring Node.js and its ecosystem.

Today I work full-time with the people at GreenVulcano Technologies, mainly as a Front-end developer. The latest projects in which I sunk my curiosity used technologies like React, Typescript, Express.js and PostgreSQL.

With time I learned to look at my work as if I were looking in a mirror, catching in it glimpses of my inner walk. Every day I strive to make sure that the path unfolding before me is as inspiring as the one traveled so far, and I wish to you too to find inspiration in your life, and to love what you do!

Something More About Me

I live my daily life with my family, two foundling dogs and three pond slider turtles that little by little have learned not to taste my fingers — actually there is also a family of bats dwelling under my roof!

Besides diving into pages of code, I like making fresh pasta, doing electrician's odd jobs and generally living on food for the mind by not forgetting, however, of being made up of tangible interactions.
